Been a bit busy lately so this is a quick post to show you how we made today's workshop card.
I wanted to do a different shape this time and have an aperture that would focus on the technique of this month which was embossing velum. I knew of several ways to make aperture cards, but then I came across a wonderful simple step by step tutorial through good old Pinterest: http://frommycraftroom.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/gate-fold-window-card-tutorial.html
This quick and simple method made it possible to combine both the shaped card making and the parchment embossing in a 2 hour class - so big thanks to Norma for sharing.
Papermill Direct , I bought a batch of card from these guys recently and the colours are beautiful, price very good and it scores wonderfull with no cracks. This matches the card base which is A4 gatefold scored with the aperture cut as per the link above
I then showed them the method Norma had used for creating the aperture but I did these while they carried on working on the rest of the project steps
Then we added some patterned cardstock to the inside of the card from Docrafts Papermania Capsule collection (EAu deNil). We decorated the edges of the card using a white Signo pen to frame and contrast and added punched flowers, gems and pearls to decorate. A sentiment to finish off and there you have it. Suz xxx
