Couple dancing with a Sax player in background - C5 white card - Day 165 of my 366 day challenge


Couple dancing with a Sax player in background - C5 white card - 
Day 165 of my 366 day challenge 


Hi Craft addicts!

I am really pleased with this card as it mixes several companies'  products so well. I have chosen an A5 white card (again like so many of the cards I use, this is from the multipack from Hunkydory) as it is the right size to "showcase" all the images I want to use.


Couple dancing with a Sax player in background - C5 white card I had previously hand coloured a panel of white hammered card (C6 pre cut from Craft Creations) using Tim Holtz Distress Inks and Generation INXS ink pads in purple and pink shades adding a few circles of the darker ink with the thicker end of the Creative Expression Smoothies sponges.

Using the "damask" style frame from one of the toppers (from the "Shadows and Silhouettes" collection) from Kanban, I stuck it to the panel using "fingerlift tape" and then added another slightly larger panel of black card and glued the whole thing to the front of the card (leaving more room at the bottom and the right hand sides.

I added the "Couple dancing in silhouette" topper using a single layer of 2mm Hunkydory foam pads around the sides and a double layer in the middle to the bottom right hand corner of the card making sure that you could see the majority of the frame.

I also cut out the "Treble clef and musical notes" in the black and glued them to the remaining corners.

For the inside and the envelope, I again cut out more of the above (along with a more complicated musical themed die) and used them to decorate them (see pics).
