A Card for Him…..

 
Good Morning, hope you all had a lovely.
We’re back to the working week and we did manage to get out for our walk on Sunday. I went a bit mad with the dinner, finished it with a homemade apple and pear crumble with custard – we definatly needed to walk that lot off LOL!
 
 
Well this morning is an exciting one because it it my first outing with a new DT
 Their challenge this week is to
 
 ‘Add Lace or Anything Goes’
and you dont have to go down the Vintage route either is thats not your ‘thing’, we would just love you to join in.
 
Card Recipe
Card blank – 8×8″ craftwork cards
Design papers = Bo Bunny, Weekend Market Collection
Dies – Spellbinders, Donna Salazar Sprightly Sprockets
Craft Embellies wooden gears
Lace from stash (present from Mum)
Image  –  ‘Poe Canvas’ from our sponser Smudgetastic Digi’s
 
 
To add dimension
 
I printed the image onto acetate (suitable for a laser printer). I cut out the Nellie Snellen Frame and removed the centre to create a frame. I then mounted the acetate image into the frame (whose apeture is smaller than the image) and secured with 3D silicone aloowing the acetate to remain domed.
 
(hope the photo shows this)
 

 
 
 I was so pleased to really make use of these gear dies too, I cut lots of them to play with, and they worked perfectly here I think.
 
 
 
 
We would love to see you over at the challenge blog, and there is a chance for you to win from our sponsers this week
