Owl card 2
The card for today is the 2nd I made from the fab new cd from www.cardcreationsplus.co.uk
Its called Brush Strokes In The Wild and if you love wildlife you need this cd!!
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
A5 white card
Brown A4 card
Scrap of gold mirri card
cream & gold foiled sentiment
Vintage photo distress ink pad
Optic Dot border and corner punch set
Cosmic Shimmer PVA glue
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card ...
I scored and folded the brown card to create my A5 card blank
I cut the main image and the 3 panels of decoupage – I used a couple of large sticky pads to stick the decoupage panels to the main image.
I used the white card and cut it down to measure 6 3/4” x 5” then punched the 4 corners, next I used the border punch carefully lining the border and corners – this created a lovely patterned mat for my image panel
I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink pad and an ink applicator to carefully cover the edges and using a circular motion it inked towards the centre in a lighter shade.
The main image panel was the stuck with double sided tape to the right side of the punched mat and then the mat was stuck to the card black more to the left side.
The cream and gold foiled christmas sentiment was attached across the top left corner of the design and the Owl message that came with the design was stuck onto a small oddment of gold mirri card and then attached at the bottom right hand side of the card to finish
I didn't use any glitter or glossy accents on the card as I felt it was just fine as it was ...
And that is owl card number 2 completed and shared – do you want another tomorrow???
Ok – see you next time...
