Just for you flowers DL Kraft card - Day 99 of my 366 day challenge



Just for you flowers DL Kraft card - 
Day 99 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

So it is nearly my 100th posting - wow I can't believe it has gone so quickly! Don't forget I am giving something very special away tomorrow to "celebrate" it...

Just for you flowers DL Kraft cardFor today's card I have used a DL Kraft card (landscape) from Papermania, a topper from the Sparkling Noir deluxe cardmaking collection from Hunkydory, the Clematis Vine simple screens die set from Tonic Studios and a frame that I have cut out from an SVG file from Creative Crafting World and of course some Nuvo crystal drops...

So, I first of all cut out the "Clematis Vine" screen die in white card - this is one where  you cut out the strip and then add the borders individually so it is important to get the proportions right!.  As the die cut was slightly bigger than the card I cut it in half and stuck it so that it fitted better. I then used the SVG "Oval frame stitch" cutting file from Creative Crafting World which I had cut out in Lynda's black cardstock on my Brother Scan n Cut and placed it in the centre of the border.

I had adjusted the file (using the web app Canvas)slightly to fit the "Sparkling Noir" oval topper and attached it to the frame using foam pads to give it some dimension. Once I was happy with it, I used the clear Crystal drops around the frame and dragged a pokey tool through the drops to create a "strip" on either side of the topper. It is amazing that even though it is clear it appears blue once dry. I then added some yellow Pearl drops to the white border to give it some colour.

There is a cream insert that has been left blank as it could have any message included on it!

And there you are a stylish card! You will be able to buy on my website soon.
