Something Blue ...
Something Blue ....
I've seen Sue Wilson do a channel card and was thinking of other ways to use a border die and came up with this.
I have used four colours from the Foundation card stock range. Coconut White, Deep Blue, Periwinkle and Light Blue.
I cut out the Austrian Border die in Coconut white and then cut two matching lengths one wider than the other to create the main topper of my design, I lined them up with the edges of the die to create a channel. For the next layer I used dark Blue. I cut strip of the dark blue, periwinkle and light blue and lined them up with the pattern on the border die starting with the darkest in the centre and the lightest on the outer edge. I covered this with iced snow from cosmic shimmer and placed it under the border. I added a triple layer matt of coconut white, periwinkle then coconut white again.
I cut four charming hearts corners out in deep blue and placed them in each corner to frame the design. I cut out the topper from the Austrian die collection - Salzburg, using various layers and matching colour and finally stamped a sentiment on the top layer from John Lockwood's Lotus Frames stamp collection.
Hope you like it
