I don't think I've shared this card before - it's from the Pick of the Week that we did in July and features the Spellbinders Pinwheels Die Set.
Couture Creations Ornate Diamonds Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut 5 of the individual spotty 'petal' dies out of Kraft Core and sanded them a little to reveal the core. I folded the thinner piece of the die cut over and popped a Creative Expressions Antique Copper Faux Screw Brad through the holes. I folded the other 4 'petals' in the same way and added them to my brad. I then fanned them out and opened up the arms of the brad to secure in place.
I stamped the sentiment from the Studio 490 Sentimental Art Stamp Set using Coffee Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.
I assembled the card as shown adding a Key Charm and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Choco Brown.
I'm off to visit Kathryn in Portsmouth today - really looking forward to seeing her again.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hi Julia, have a great day with Kathryn. The pin wheel looks interesting, I saw the shows in July but was not tempted but I like this card.ReplyDelete
Good Morning Julia,ReplyDelete
The pin wheel die I have used to make flowers most of the time, this is a simple card suitable for the males, which is always difficult in my world, lol. Have a great day today with your daughter.
Lovely autumnal feel, love the sentiment. Enjoy the day!ReplyDelete

Love the colouring on your card very apt for this time of the year.

HI Julia. Hope you have/had a good day in Portsmouth with Kathryn. My grand-daughter is in her first year at Bath and we're missing her lots already. Lovely autumn colours in this card but can't say the dies have tempted me. However, had a bit of crafters block with a card for a friend who will be 70 soon and have now taken inspiration from your metal/alcohol ink background. So - thank you.ReplyDelete
