Hello everyone, it's time to post my latest card and this time round it is one I have done for the design team for http://creativecraftcottage.blogspot.co.nz/ This months challenge is Geode tones
I chose to use greys,blue and cream.
I started by choosing a grey co ordinations card for the background and cut it to size ( 8x8" ) and embossed it using a embossalicous tiny dots folder and then sanded it to bring out the dots. Then I chose a dark grey mirri board and used a tonic border punch at the top and bottom and then used a flourish embossing folder to emboss the center. Then I chose a blue piece of card to place behind and show through the border. Then I chose this lovely stamp which I have had for years and I am sorry but I can't remember where I bought it. Then I stamped it on some cream card and used black and blue pro markers to colour it in to match the colour scheme . I then layered it on to a piece of blue card to match the colour showing through the border and then applied it to the card using 3d foam to make it stand proud of the card. Then I made some flowers with cream paper and inked the edges with blue ink and layered them up. Then I chose one of my favourite ribbons to match the colours of the card and attached to the card,then placed one of the flowers in the center of the bow and added two diamond hat pins and one pearl hat pin and then added the other flower and sentiment.
I hope you like the finished card and you can join in the fun over at creative craft cottage blog
