Good Afternoon Dear Blog Friends
Wishing you all a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. Here is my first DT creation this month for Creative Expressions. This card was made using one of the new range of single stamps designed by Sue Wilson. All these stamps coordinate with a Spellbinder die and the one I used here: Celtic Feather (image below) co-ordinates with the large die in Spellbinders Celtic Motifs. I also used Spellbinders Celtic Accents (see pic below
I stamped and embossed four panels using parts of the Celtic Feather stamp. I used perfect medium and white embossing powder. The panels were then dry embossed using Creative Expressions Flourish Embossing Folder.
I cut a square using one of the smaller squares from Spellbinders Grand Squares and cut the large Celtic Motif from the centre of the square. with the die still in place I used the Flourish embossing folder to create the central piece of the card. The embossing folder was left open and the sandwich was shimmed with cardstock to make up for the thickness of the open folder. I stamped and embossed the feather on to cardstock, cut it out with a square border, placed it behind the negative and rotated it until it matched the negative piece.
I used two of the cut out central motifs, one stamped and embossed and cut in two, another dry embossed with the same embossing folder and cut in two, then used them around the sides of the central motif. I added some pearls and cut the small dies from the Motifs and Accents and placed them in the centre.
I added a twisted ribbon and ribbon flower made from Ivory Silky Crush Ribbon.
And used the tag die for the sentiment
I added the Celtic Accents top and bottom of the card and edged the card with the pieces left over from cutting the Celtic Accents.
