Hi Everyone :) Alison here today, sharing my card inspired by this weeks challenge theme of 'Autumn Colours'.
Now I have been dying to use some more of the gorgeous celtic borders on my cards, and so I chose to start off with an 8 x 5 inch card base, as the borders really work well when used in 8 inch strips.
My cardstock for this was 300gsm Kraft and Ivory, so really heavy weights and as you can see they cut the most detailed dies beautifully. I coloured a fab Crafts & Me digi image as my focal point and used HOTP papers from my scraps box.
The gorgeous border dies are the Celtic Chain and the Celtic Heart Border. I added a cross section of the Tiffany Border die towards the bottom and embellished that with 2 mini doilies taken from the centres of the Polynesian Sails and Nautical Wheeler dies. These are so useful!
The leaves are a mix of Dimensional Small Leaves, Olive Branches and Pair of Ferns I finally added twine, a wooden button and a few more bits and bobs glittered up from my pot pourri bowl - lol! :)
All dies used on this card are:
B237 - Celtic heart border (tucked behind the image)
Polynesian Sail - mini doily taken from the centre of the main die
Nautical Wheeler Doily - mini doily taken from the centre of the main doily
I hope you find time to play along with our challenge this week, and I look forward to seeing some fabulous creations. Dont forget there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog.
I hope everyone has a smashing week, and thanks so much for visiting today.
