1st CE DT Card for March
Good Tuesday morning everyone, and welcome to my 1st DT Card for March. I had such a hectic month last month full of family related cards and parties and get together's, not that I am complaining as we had some lovely family time. I am now able to breath a bit easier this month and hopefully get some Tina cards made.
To all my lovely blog friends further up country you have had some horrendous weather and I hope by the time you read this things would have settled down for you. We have had really strong winds today ( Monday ). I went to the wholesalers looking fairly respectable, but coming home like I had been pulled through a hedge backwards.
For this month we have no stamps, it's dies, and it's all about love.
I just hope I have done my 1st card justice so here goes!!
8X8 black card
Creative Expressions Foundation card- Periwinkle
Creative Expressions- Vintage Silver Card
Sue Wilson EF- Bed of Roses
Creative Expressions- Heart dazzlers
CE- Bakers Twine pale blue
Couture Creations- Ornamental Lace Die
Spellbinders- Grand Squares
CE- Celebration Sentiments
CE- Diamond Sprinkles
Cosmic Shimmer- Ebony Ice
Sue Wilson- Finishing Touches- Classic Rose
Tim Holtz Distress Ink- Weathered Wood
My colour scheme is black , silver and periwinkle blue.
I started with Matt and layering silver and periwinkle blue card. The second layer of matt and layering, around the black layer I added double sided tape and sprinkled Ebony Ice. I then cut a heart with the couture creations heart die. I then pleced it on a piece of double sided sticky sheet.I took the back of the sticky sheet off and attached it to pale blue vellum and hand cut around the heart, to the front I covered it with Diamond Sprinkles and added 5 pale blue gems from my stash. I then attached the heart to my matt and layered top which I had used the new Sue Wilson EF , Bed of Roses. Before attaching the top layer to my card I wrapped some grosgrain ribbon and also tied a big bow too. I wound some bakers twine around the strip of ribbon and made a little ribbon and glued it to the main bow. I stamped the sentiment from Creative Expressions celebrations sentiments and cut it out with spellbinders Grand Squares and while still in the die I just gave a bit of a shadow with weathered Wood Distress Ink. I made a rose from Sue's finishing touches die and dusted with yet more diamond sprinkles then added black and white leaves just to keep in with the colour scheme . Et Voila!! I hope you like it.
As usual I would love to hear your comments
