The card was inspired by Jennifer McGuire over on her blog found here;
Of course my card is nothing like Jennifer's, it just morphed but still retains the design principals (see the above blog link) There are also more details in my SCS gallery if you are not coming to the blog from that link, the gallery link is here;
To create my border I had to do a fair amount of masking shown in this image. I use "Post It Notes" as my masks usually and have a number of different sized note pads.
I also used my stamp positioner, Christmas present from my DH, it is identical to the Misti stamp positioner and I love it, makes life so much easier.
As mentioned in previous posts I do this using my swatch book and also the Copic colour wheel seen in this photo.
I take a small piece of card of the SU colour I need to match then hold it against the swatch book and wheel.
Normally I use three colours to blend (although I have used as meany as five colours) The colour I match to the SU colour is the middle colour as this will be used the most then I go two shades darker and two shades lighter and they are what I blend with.
The rest of the card is very simple, once I had coloured the image I fussy cut around the side that was to face into the card, mounted this onto some craft foam with PVA glue and while that was drying stamped the greeting onto the base card using the stamp positioner then over stamped again with Versa Mark - Watermark and heat embossed with clear embossing powder (one of my favourite things)
I then mounted the border panel onto the card with more PVA glue and finished the card by mounting a strip of SU Bella Rose DP against some white blending paper and mounting this onto some SU Old Olive card stock as the inside of the card.... and that's all folks. For more details of equipment used pop over to my SU gallery (link above) as there is a detailed list.
