Chrysanthemum Collage...

Happy Sunday everyone!
Sue here today with a card I made for our Tracy for a feature in Die Cutting Essentials magazine.

The card design is something a bit different for me and I really loved making it!

Here is a little tutorial for you which describes how I made the blended ombre background and put the card design together.

 1. Create a 14.5cm x 17cm card blank with the fold at the side.  Create a panel of purple card the same size, fix it to the card blank and set aside.  Cut a strip of polka dot card x 16cm, and a piece of white hammer card measuring 12cm x 16cm, set aside

2. On a piece of white card measuring 10cm x 14cm blend the Tim Holtz Distress Inks in an ombre effect light to dark, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves. Set aside. 

3. With the Chrysanthemum Collage die cut the panel of white hammer card set aside earlier.  Fix this card panel on top of the ombre effect card.  Using Onyx Black ink stamp the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner of this panel as shown.  Set aside.

4. Fix the strip of polka dot card and the card design to the front of the card blank set aside earlier as shown.
Thank you for popping by.
Happy Crafting
