Cherish By Fliss Goodwin




 

 

Hi there, another card from me this week as my hubby and I have just had our wedding anniversary so I decided to take this opportunity to make something he would like. I’ve chosen shades of brown and blue with some metallic bronze to add shimmer. The design is quite simple as in common with many men, he doesn’t like anything too fussy.

 

Here’s What You Need:

Distress Stains – Antique Linen, Tea Dye, Picket Fence, Tumbled Glass, Antiqued Bronze

 

Here’s How To:
 

·       Cut 9 squares of white card to fit comfortably on your card blank (mine are 4.5cm square). Apply patches of each colour of Distress Stain to the craft sheet and dip the squares in each colour to build up a marbled look. Add more stain as required until all the squares are coloured.

 

·       When the squares are dry, stamp the cherish and love bingo cards twice each on to 4 of the squares with the copper ink and heat emboss with the clear powder.

 

·       Die cut 5 hearts from white card and cover with embossing ink. Sprinkle of the Fran-tage embossing enamel and heat to melt the powder. Rub the gilding wax around the white card edges to cover them up and neaten the finish

 

·       Attach the squares to the card blank and then add the hearts to the undecorated squares. I stuck mine on with mini glue dots for a firm bond.

  

Have a lovely weekend.
