Colours, Sketch, Feminine

20171005_215529

Hello again, everyone. I have made a card with more die-cutting than stamping today. The colours were inspired by Color Throwdown and Watercooler Wednesday, and the layout by Freshly Made Sketches.

I have a fad for orange at the moment. It seems to have been in my crafting for a few months now, and I really have to try to move away from it – but then Color Throwdown used orange as part of the colour scheme this week. Yay!

I used a spellbinders die for the large circle, and the ‘beautiful’ word die from Stamps By Me, as was the ‘Birthday Wishes’ stamp. This part of it was actually quite easy. Now for the more complicated part…..

I wanted to use a rose die from Stamps By Me, which comes with the intricate rose, plus a larger border die. I didn’t want the bits to fall out of the rose, so turned to some Glad Press ‘N’ seal which my sister gave from when I went to Canada.

20171005_215529 v2Once I had cut the rose out of Kraft card, I managed to release the die cut without many pieces falling out, used the press ‘n’ seal on the front of the rose, glued the back of it all, then picked it up with the press ‘n’ seal, and placed it on the larger rose outline die, gently removing the press ‘n’ seal, leaving the rose stuck down onto the outline. I didn’t fancy piecing all those bits back in, so I am glad not many of them fell out!

I then added some Spectrum Sparkle around the rose outline, and stuck it to the circle with 3D foam pads.

  2. Wow, what a lovely clean and simple card! This time of the year orange is popular and shows itself time and again in leaves and pumpkins and, of course, Hallowe’en cards. What a refreshing change to find it in such a perfect background for your lovely die-cut rose. Love everything you’ve done. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  3. Orange seems to be a super popular colour right now, and you’ve incorporated it nicely into your card. I like the double die cut rose and appreciate the tip about using the Press N’ Seal to keep all the bits together. Great card! Thanks for joining us this week at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge.
