Hello again, Barbara here with a larger than usual birthday card, made using the beautiful dark violet cardstock. I think this colour looks very regal 😄
I started off, as always, gathering all my components together.
On this card I’ve used:-
Papermilldirect A4 Paper in:
Dark Violet 240gsm
White Linen 255gsm
Distress Oxide inks in Lucky Clover, Twisted Citron, Milled Lavender and Wilted Violet
Sizzix square dies
Altenew stamps and matching dies
I made a 7” square base card from two sheets of dark violet, a white ‘Matt’ and a dark violet frame, using the square dies.
On scrap linen card, I stamped the images then die-cut them.
I stamped the sentiment onto the white ‘matt’........always do the sentiment before assembling the card, as it’s so much easier to rectify mistakes at this point.
I then assembled all the pieces using double-sided tape & d-s foam tape and added a few dots using black Enamel Accents from Ranger.
I also added a 6” ‘matt’ of white linen to the inside to write my birthday message.
Thanks for looking,
