Pretty in Pink

Another 8" x 8" card, I think the Idyllics really lend themselves to this size card.  For the curved front card I made an 8" x 8" card blank from A4 white pearlescent card.  

The front curved panel was cut at 8" x 11" with a score line 1" in at either end giving you a 9" panel to decorate and curve.  I started off by lining up the large die in the centre of the curved panel and die cutting it.  I reinforced the open patterned panels by backing them with strips of pink card. I cut the square panel out of the centre, I cut the patterned square die out of this and cut another square out of pink card. Layer these together and die cut a sentiment to layer on top.  Line up the centre of the card panel and stick the square in place on the actual card blank.

For either side of the aperture, die cut one of the strips out of the new Verso Clematis Climber Strip Die set out of white pearlescent card and cut a  backing layer out of pink.  Stick these in place.

Assemble the card by sticking the curved front panel in place, to finish the card off, die cut the layers of the Small Lacy Die set, pink base layers and white pearlescent patterned layers, assemble the now and stick to the bottom of the aperture.

A pretty simple card that looks anything but :)

Hope you like it and don't forget to keep tuning into Create and Craft for the Tonic Studios Pick of the Week which include the beautiful Idyllics Dies.
