Hello today my post is a card I designed for Susan Tierney-Cockburn’s Design Team at Elizabeth Craft Designs. I have again used Susan’s Chrysanthemum I really love making these “Mums” they are lots of fun. I have used microfine glitter on this card but it is very hard to see the glitter in the picture. The card is displayed on the new Card Stand / Easel made with the new Elizabeth Craft Designs die. I am loving this stand and including it with my cards when I send them as it is great for the recipient to be able to display their card.
Here we go
The card base is a standard A2 card 4-1/4 X 5-1/2 with a top fold.
1 Using white cardstock cut at 4-1/2 X 5-3/4″ cover with clear double sided adhesive cut 1 panel from the accordion oval die – cut away the oval and tabs.
2. Remove protective paper from the adhesive and cover with Saffron micro fine glitter and burnish in.
3. Cover a 5 X 6″ piece of white cardstock with clear double sided adhesive and cut 1 set of oval flourish frame edges. remove the protective paper and adhere to the glittered panel. Attach panel to front of card base.
