Party Time Part Two


Hi all,

Well in this post I want to show you the second make and take card from my first workshop. Since I showcased Pink Pirouette and Riding Hood Red and the eyelet punch in the first card, for my second I decided to go with Kiwi Kiss and Baja Breeze and the scallop edge punch.










As you can see I made two colour variations again, the Riding Hood Red/ Kiwi Kiss was my original concept but since I wanted to use different in colour I went with the Kiwi/Baja version. Using the scallop edge punch to make “frame” was an idea I first saw on Ngaire Anderson's blog, but rather than making it a complete frame I left one end open so I could tie the bottom of the card in to the top. I could never find again the blog where I first saw Bloom Away stamped in a monochrome format but not long after Marelle Taylor also posted some monochrome stamped images on here blog here.

So details, well the base card is stamped with Sanded, it provides a great backdrop to Bloom Away. Then I’ve placed a layer of white between the Kiwi and Baja to accentuate the frame and divide the colours. The Bloom Away waratah was stamped in Kiwi (twice but one is for the inside) then cut out. That is mounted on dimensionals on a Kiwi panel with rounded corners. A knotted Kiwi striped grosgrain ribbon separates the image and sentiment. The sentiment is framed and mounted on another strip of Kiwi cardstock, the ends of which have been round off using the 3/4" circle punch. Finishing touches include piercing the scallops and the bottom edge of the Baja layer and adding silver brads to the two upper corners.
