The challenge at Creative Corner this week is ‘heavy metal’. We want you to add something metal to your project.
I began by cutting one piece of card 123mm by 180mm to form the base of an easel card and another piece of card 123mm by 210mm. This latter piece I scored at 180mm (to form the ‘hinge’ to which to attach the base) and 90mm (to form the fold of the easel) from one end.
Paper printed using the My Craft Studio CD ROM Alfie was matted onto dark blue core’dinations cardstock and then onto the base of the easel card.
Another paper printed using the same CD ROM and dark blue core’dinations cardstock were matted and layered onto white card to form the upright of the easel. A belt made from dark blue mirri card and a buckle was used to form the easel stop.
The digi image ‘lets go out’ from Crafty Sentiments Designs was coloured using spectrum noir pens and cut out using a Spellbinders resplendent rectangle die. The edges were then distressed with faded jeans distress ink and a card candi was added to each of the four corners. This was then matted onto dark blue mirri card which had been cut out using another Spellbinders resplendent rectangle die before fixing to the card front.
Finally a tag with a die cut greeting was added.
I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Glitter and Sparkle – tag it

3 different embellishments (tag, card candi, belt/buckle)

Incy Wincy Designs – easel card
