A quick post to share a card I have made for this month's challenge going on over at Neat and Tangled, Little Tangles challenge blog, where this time round, it's all about the 'Die-cutting'.
And here's my card...
I used Neat and Tangled's 'Hoop die' as the main element for my card, and kept my design very Clean and simple.
I started by cutting my Hoop from a piece of graph paper a couple of times, the second time leaving plenty of room in the surrounding area from where I cut a scalloped circle, as the kind of 'skirting' around my embroidery hoop. I also cut the Hoop die form a piece of wood veneer, and the extra hinges & pin from a couple of pieces of card I had embossed in gold and silver sparkle powder.
I then die-cut a heart from the centre of my hoop, and heat embossed the positive piece in red embossing powder, then another layer of sparkle embossing powder, and in-laid back in. I then stamped out my sentiment from Neat and Tangled's 'Crafting is my jam' in black ink and clear heat embossed.
I then took a panel of kraft card, and dry embossed it using a wood grain folder, and mounted all my elements upon it, off-centre, and snipping off the over-hang.
I wanted to keep my card completely CAS so, after mounting onto a white card base, left it there. In hindsight, I really wish I'd added a twirl of twine beneath my hoop as I think it would have finished my card perfectly...but that's the thing with hindsight right?...it always comes a little late!
I really hope you like it and would love to read your comments so please feel free to leave them.
See you next time.
