card, something a little different for me.
My card was 'borrowed' from Helen in CWS. A beautiful ribbon bow complements the lace and sentiment on a bright orange card.
I received this absolutely gorgeous card, although it is a Christmas card it is something else.
The image papers are delightfully shiny and embellished with holographic edging.
Thank you Linda A.
Technique Swap.- Pop up/out
I have had a printout tutorial of a Pivot Twist Pop-up card on my desk for ages and I signed up for this swap so I could make it. I cut templates out first and it took me ages to work out how it folded but when I managed it - wow! So simple and so effective.
I used Glenda Cairns easy tutorial - Utube also has pdf to print out.
After cutting out the templates I chose my papers and stamps for the centre pop out then started measuring and cutting and sticking and stamping and voila!!
I used papers from my book and used a piece of the base card for the diecut - free with this months Diecuts Magazine - stamping across the centre using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
I chose coordinating double sided papers for both the mechanism and the pop outs.
I'm very pleased with the final result, hope my partner likes it!!!
The Butterfly is decoupaged from some gorgeous papers, and the papers inside are the same type.
Thank you Olive.
