Hey there! Surprise! Another blog entry for you to peruse and another card for you to enjoy! I was watching Christina Griffiths (CardmakingMagic.com) on youtube last night and she made a card that inspired me and resulted in my latest creation.
I've finally got some kraft coloured cardstock in my stash (been wanting it for a while) and this card was made using the 12x12 sheets from CraftOnline. It isn't very strong cardstock but when you reinforce it with a few layers, it's just right. *smile*
Anyway, I really like how this card turned out, so much so that I wanted to finish it before I jumped online to chat with my other DUS friends. (oh, DUS stands for Down Under Stampers, I don't think I've mentioned us all before.)
Well here it is, I think I will make a few more. The diecut was only cut half way by placing the plates half way only on the die. I chose not to emboss as Christina did on her video here, as I was going to cover it with a white die cut anyway, so I didn't see the point. I also didn't put loads of embellishments on there, I think the simplicity on this card is rather elegant (even if I do say so myself!)
Enjoy! and thanks always for stopping by!
