Enjoy Today....

Good evening all..... 

Yes, don't be shocked, but I'm back again with a blog post for you. I have tried to get things uploaded for a while, but the phone went on the blink and I couldn't find the cord for my camera to download the images. *sigh*. 

I hope you have all been keeping okay whilst I've been absent. We have been better here with a few problems this last few weeks, but we've shaken ourselves off and had to carry on... and are feeling less battered and bruised than before. 

However... I now have time to share with you a card I made for the shows from Sandown Park, the Weekender which featured the card layering dies - Bowscale and Harrop - by Tonic Studios. 

The card I wanted to share with you today, uses the Bowscale die to cut the layers into the stamped image  - so using the smaller parts of the dies - and you can then layer them up into a more dimensional card.

I started by stamping the image, which is from Dreamees, and I embossed in the Tonic Nuvo Gold embossing powder before colouring in with Tonic pens. There's a little technique I used, which I will come back to after Friday!!

You can see that I used a couple of the Bowscale dies to fit onto the image, which I had trimmed to fit onto the card front and layered onto gold mirror card. These were then stuck back onto the card with foam pads on the outer and inner sections to give dimension. You can see this more clearly on the bottom picture.

The die cut was our sentiment dies - Enjoy Today - and I love that wording. Cut once from white card and once from mirror card and simply layered together to create the drop shadow.

I finished off the card with the Tonic Nuvo Glitter drops. I hope you like the card today - I'm going to go and upload another one now... take advantage of finding the right cable me thinks...!
