Like in previous weeks Tim and Mario have donated a huge prize packet for one lucky winner and in addition The Inspiration Emporium are offering a $50 for the overall winner of this week's contest.
Well, onto my project: I made a fancy card and I'll give you a quick step by step:
I started with a piece of white 6 x 12" card and scored it at 3 and 9" along the 12" side. I then cut the two end bits with Tim's Tattered Doily die.
Next I cut a frame with the Cabinet Card die and insert, I kept the frame as was but cut the insert in half length wise
I wanted to use them as pretend shutters, so made two paper hinges to attach them to the frame:
I used those to attach my shutters to. Next I took a piece of 6 x 6 vintage scrapbook paper and attached it to the middle section of my card. I then cut the small cabinet card insert again from similar paper and attached that to the shutters on the side that would show. I coloured the window frame with vintage photo and adhered it to my card base.
Onto the roses, I'm not going to tell you how I did them, you'll just have to get the book if you don't have it, but here you can see them, I made three from white card and then coloured with a mix of Victorian Velvet and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.
I mounted it all onto a piece of Cored'nations card from Tim's Nostalgic collection.
A little banner from the new Curvy Tattered Banners Decorative strip die and a butterfly finish it all off. I added Rockcandy Distress Glitter to the butterfly and the sentiment words are remnant rubs. I saw that cool idea on Paula Cheney's blog.
The butterfly is from the Butterfly Frenzy strip die. After I glittered it I drew a "body" with a Walnut Stain Distress marker and then went over it with a wet brush and inked around the edges. I'm really happy with how it turned out.. I just tucked it behind the banner.
Well hope you like my card and thank you for visiting like always.
