Folded Deco Ovals - Live The Life - a Card from Karen


Hello. For today's card, working from the outside panels,  I die cut the Verso Clematis Climber strip die out of light blue card for each side and then I used the matching outside edge die to cut the edge of the actual card so that when you stick the die cut panels in place you can leave a small white border.

The next small panel in uses the waste from the Clematis Climber die cut joined with a length of 10mm white grosgrain ribbon.

The centre large panel was layered with silver mirror card and light blue card, leaving a small border each time.  The large Deco Oval outer edge was cut in blue and white with the patterned die being cut out of the blue layer, these were glued together and stuck onto the panel with 3d foam pads.  The  'Live The Life You Imagined' was cut from white and silver and drop shadowed and the Rococo Petite Butterfly Sprig was cut out of silver mirror card and attached to the top with some tiny pearl stamens for antennae.  The card was finished with some pearls in the corners and on the ribbon strips.

I hope you like it,
