About Me

My photo
I'm a part-time primary school teacher, who started papercrafting 8 years ago, when I had a fancy to make my own Christmas cards. Since then, I have tried all sorts of techniques and styles - and I kind of like them all. So my work is very varied, which keeps me interested - and my crafty stash growing!! As well as cards, I love working with boxes and canvases - and I'm always seeking inspiration for new projects.

Rather Large Triple Easel Card!!

For today's sneak peek of the new Times Gone By, I have a rather large triple easel card for you.
The width of the card is the length of a sheet of A3 card  - which seemed a great idea while I was making it - but caused a little consternation when it came to sending off my samples!!
These are the measurements that I used to create the base - using A3 Centura Pearl Snow White Hint of Gold. The images are all on one Topper Companion sheet, and I used the design and co-ordinating papers for matting and layering. 
The bows and sentiment are also from the CD, as is the little hanging embellishment - which I covered in Glossy Accents.  The stoppers are cut using Die'sire Essentials Circles and Scalloped Circles - the larger Centura Pearl ones being embossed with Embossalicious A4 Floral Trellis. 
I inked the edges of all the pieces with a combination of Scattered Straw and Tattered Rose DI's. A few buttons and pearls, and a length of wire edged ribbon completed the card!!
I will be back tomorrow with another sample to share with you.
