Happy Easter to you all.
I was working on my swaps for OnStage in Telford next weekend –
thirty-nine down, sixty-one to go, or something like that!
All I can say
about my swaps at the moment is that the Stamparatus has really come
into it’s own!
Yesterday I wasn’t sure which option to
go for, and eventually chose the wedding theme.
After positioning the base cardstock (CS) in the centre of my Grid
Paper, I adhered the first shape as close to the centre as I could.
After I had decided where the second shape should go, all the rest of
the shapes had a right and wrong way to go!
I felt my card needed two images, or one
sentiment and an image, so I went through my Card Reference File for
What I found wasn’t something I had considered i.e. two
complementary sentiments. They’re from the Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set
which includes two or three different pairs of sentiments – I think this is definitely a set that’s seriously
After I had punched the two sentiments out using the
Tailored Tag Punch, I punched out four halves of tags in Gold Foil to line the back
of the sentiments.
Using Tombow, I glued one gold half tag at the top and the bottom
of each sentiment; this helps them stand out from the mosaic layer.
Inside the card I added a layer of Gold Foil, and a
layer of Very Vanilla CS.
Using Dimensionals I adhered the two
sentiments to the card front, and finished off by adding two large Basic
Pearls other end of the sentiment, and a row of three in the middle of
the centre shape.
That’s about it from me today, so until tomorrow, happy crafting.
