Die Cut Aperture

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day yesterday - lots of lovely backgrounds were made by the ladies. My next workshops are on Wednesday 26th October up at Creative Expressions HQ in Kettering. You can find more details and book here.

I'm off to attend a Beading Workshop today.

Here's today's card -

I started by cutting the outer die only from the Spellbinders Medallion Three Die-DLite out of Aqua Card to create an aperture. I mounted this onto another piece of Aqua Card using 3D Foam.

I cut the 2 dies from the set together out of Bright White Card and glued the die cut in place through the aperture. I added a Craft Consortium Heart Cluster Diamante Charm to the centre.

I made a frame out of Bright White Card using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B. I added it to my background using 3D Foam.

I cut the motifs I used in the corners out of Bright White Card using Spellbinders Venetian Motifs Die Set. I added a 5mm White Pearl to each one.

Creative Expressions have loaded a 3rd video that I made - this time using CS Misters 

Thanks for stopping by.
