Hello friends,

This is Anita here with another new card for you.
Summer is at its peak here and the days are extremely bright and sunny ( read --HOT ). In this heat, I am searching for cool things drinks, cold salads and cool colours. So for this project, I decided to go for cool summer shade.

Here is a card, in which, I have created a lacey look using CottageCutz dies. The CottageCutz Petite dies are so beautiful and intricate that one can create many designs using them. So I have created this filigree lacey look for my card. Here is a step by step tutorial on how I made this card.

             Using the CottageCutz Flowering Vine die , I cut out 5-6 pieces in white card stock

               I cut out a die cut using the CottageCutz Fancy Lace Border die

Using Peeled Paint Distress Ink, distress the top half of a card stock measuring 4.75 inches by 6.75 inches.

                         Score the bottom half on the scoreboard at an interval of 1/8 of an inch.

        Adhere the floral die cuts on the coloured part as shown

Add the CottageCutz Fancy Lace Border die cut along with the negative of that die cut. 

Add two oval die cuts from the CottageCutz Cross-Stitched Oval set and adhere the expression from the CottageCutz Expressions Thinking Of You and secure it with twine on either side.

The Final card

Zelo mi je všeč kombinacija izrezanih vrtnic in embosirne mapice.
