"Hope" Card by Katrina Thompson


#artdecocreations   #couturecreationsaus    #ultimatecrafts  

Hello everyone. Today I am sharing with you a card using the new Bohemian Bouquet Collection designed by Denise Boddey. When designing this card I have focused on another colour variation in the beautiful palette that this range brings to you. You will see another of the new dies in action and also the beautiful chipboard designs that compliment this range along with a dash of hot foiling. I hope you enjoy. Katrina





Cut a piece of the Jungle, (green), cardstock to fit the Jungle Background Die. Attach a piece of the Die Cut'n Bond to the back of the cardstock ready for die cutting.

Once die cut, remove a portion of the inner floral section away from the frame.

Using the center doily from the 2 piece Fine Doily Chipboard Set and your Go Press and Foil Machine, I have coloured coordinated the doily with the patterned papers using the Pink Mirror Finish Heat Activated Foils.

Cut the lady and Hope sentiment from the 6x6 paper pad as pictured.

Blot the doily with white ink to give it a mottled appearance. Attach the lady to the Hot Foiled Doily. Dust the die cut with white ink to make it appear cloudy and cut a patterned matt, 10.5cm wide x 15.2cm high, from the 6x6 patterned paper as pictured.

 Cut a selection of the flower elements from the 12x12 patterned paper sheet as pictured.

Tuck the 'Hope' sentiment between the petals and leaves and mount with foam tape behind.

Card Construction: Cut a Snow White matt, 11.3cm wide x 16cm high and distress the edges.
Cut a Precious, (pink) card front 12.5cm wide x 17.5cm high. Ink the edges in white to soften. Cut an additional pink strip, 1.7cm wide x 15.7cm high, ink the edges in white and distress them.
Cut a Jungle, (green) card backing 15cm wide x 17.5cm high. Fold a 2.5cm vertical hinge down the left edge.
Attach the pink and green to form the card base. Overlap the green hinge, butting the pink edge into the fold. 

Attach the Snow White matt as pictured.

Center and attach the patterned paper as pictured. Attach the pink strip along the left edge and cut a 1cm strip from the 12x12 patterned paper to run through the middle.

 Peel away the backing from the Die Cut n' Bond and attach to the card base.


Attach the lady using foam mount tape. Arrange the flower elements around the image to complete.

Thankyou for Looking, Happy Creating!! K
