Perfect Blend with Gorgeous Grunge
Today I wanted to show you this beautiful card we made at our craft class last night. It is a very simple technique that results in a ‘braided’ edge. Once I’ve got my head around video blogging I will post a video tutorial on it, so watch this space.
stamp front and reverse of folded card using the ‘Dictionary’ stamp (make sure to take note of which end of ‘writing’ is up and which is down)
overstamp that with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp.
stamp inside card with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’ stamp to get the stamped effect on the folded down parts of the ‘braid’
use braid template to cut braid along spine – cut off the very bottom slice of braid (carefully as this will then be restuck to top)
fold down and tuck in every other slice of braid to create the braid effect. take your little cut off piece and glue to the top section and tuck in.
use ‘Tag Topper Punch’ to create your topper – layered with ‘Strawberry Slush and Crumb Cake’ card stock. ‘Crumb Cake layer needs to be stamped with ‘Gorgeous Grunge’.
stamp ‘Perfect Blend’ coffee cup image on to very vanilla card stock twice – 1 for ‘Tag Topper’ and 1 to overstamp the label with Dictionary’ stamp. cut this out and adhere to cup image.
decorate with ‘Strawberry Slush Bakers Twine’, Strawberry Slush Itty Bitty Accents’ punched pieces and ‘Rhinestone Basic Jewels’ and you have one gorgeous little card. (picture doesn’t do it justice, believe me)
