Creativity Club DT share - Patterns to Love.

Evening all, thank goodness it is the weekend, we've had a completely utterly manic week at work and I am truly shattered! I have had a relaxing afternoon with a little crafting and just watched Strictly!

More importantly, today's share is a card that I have made using the newest Docrafts, Creativity Club Downloads, Patterns to Love - parts 1 & 2. This is a super download using pale blue, turquoise and white in a variety of patterns all with a distressed, shabby feeling to them, they're gorgeous!


I used 2 papers from the downloads, one with the smaller pattern on and one with the larger pattern on and in a different colour way to add contrast. Can you see the distressed edge on the paper at the top, this is great for if you need a quick card or for people who are not confident at the technique.

When thinking for a focal point for this card the colour just said to me 'Tatty Ted's blue nose', so I rummaged in my stash and found this decoupage. The mount is the Xcut Doorplate die, the ribbon is from Wilkinsons new Christmas wrapping section, the sentiment is a Me to You one stuck onto one of the Xcut Tags and Bookplates die cuts and the stars were from a mini stamp set.

I have also used an exciting (well it is to me as a die cutting addict!) new product on this card too. The Xcut Border Dies, Set 1, for the double scalloped edging effect. These are 12" strips and come in packs of three and there are 3 sets. I cut the edge off the backing paper with the die first to give me a border strip (for use on another project) and this of course left the paper with the decorative edge too. I then cut the same strip from turquoise card and stuck them onto the base card against each other, simple!


DON'T FORGET! - My blog candy to win a 6 month membership to the Docrafts Creativtiy Club is still running, only another 20 or so followers to go. Again a big welcome to all my new followers, thank you for joining me and I hope you are liking what you see here. Ni. X
