Hi & Happy New Year Everyone.
I was asked to provide some projects for Januarys Docrafts Creativity Magazine.
I really enjoyed making this Easter card.
Above shows the way I stamped the doves for a section of the background on the card.
By overlapping at a slightly different angle it gives a funky dimention to it.
You can also view the instructions and more photos of this card on the Do Crafts website and in my Gallery. www.docrafts.com/TD1
1. Take your dove stamp and stamp in yellow all over some white card.
2. Emboss with clear holographic embossing powder.
3. Stamp loosely over where you’ve stamped before in a darker yellow and emboss in gold.
4. Trim card and mat it up with sage green card, wrap with green raffia and stick flat onto A5 card.
5. Cut out two long rectangles of yellow card, one darker than the other.
Cut one slightly smaller so they layer up.
6. Emboss the smallest rectangle before sticking to the card.
7. Take some sage green card and the darker of the two yellow cards used previously to create two smaller rectangles. Again one embossed and layer on top of each other.
8. Place the printed sentiment on top of that.
9. With the flower nesting dies cut out the four largest flowers in 2 alternating colours.
10. Layer them up and slice down one side where it tucks behind the sentiment.
TIP: The bit you cut off can be used on the corners if you wish.
11. Mat and layer the Easter sentiment with matching card.
12. Stick a dove sticker onto card cut out and pop onto card over flower and larger sentiment.
13. Pop a tiny bit of glitter glue onto the dove for an eye.
14. Punch out any small flower in gold mirri-board make curled using an embossing tool.
15. Pop flowers onto card taking note of embossed pattern and decorate with gems and glitter glue.
16. Take ribbon and make a bow add to top of card.
17. Take the same ribbon and make three loops for the two corners and pop underneath.
TIP If you don’t have enough gems use half gems and half glitter glue in the flowers.
