SATURDAY GIVE AWAY



Hi... thanks for popping by for our first 'give away' of 2017!


I started with a white 5"x7" card base and matted this with Antique Copper Foundation Card by Creative Expressions.  I then used the Petite Striplet - Jubilee Die Set by SW for CE at each side of a piece of white card measuring 13cm x 10.5 cm, and added double sided adhesive by Woodware to the back of these.  I sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes in Red Blaze.  These were then burnished into the design using a Rub-it Scrub-it.  I used both the outer and inner dies to cut a separate piece in white card, backed it with double sided adhesive and applied the gilding flakes as described above.  Foam tape was adhered to this piece to give it dimension then adhered to the centre of the main focal point.  Thin mats of white and antique copper card were added to the back of this and adhered to the base card.  I stamped Happy Birthday in 'Coffee' using an Archival Ink Pad by Ranger, I place one of the Stitched Flags Dies by SW for CE to the sentiment, then cut and embossed it.  I used an accent pen in gold to the edges of the sentiment, added mounting foam to the back and adhered this to the card base


Leave me a comment to win this card and I will draw the winner on Monday
