Graphic 45

I have some exciting news, I have been chosen to join the Shernocky Crafts design team. I am really thrilled to be asked, so a big thank you to Shirley.

My first DT sample is a 6x6 card.

I made a matt from gold card and cut it slightly smaller than my base card. My next layer was a black card matt which is a little smaller than the gold matt. I then made two smaller mats, again slightly smaller than each other. I took a piece of the Graphic 45 design paper and layered it onto cream card matching the base and placed this onto the other layers on the base card. I chose one of the pictures the Graphic 45 papers and matt onto black and then gold card, I placed this topper onto foam pads and put it onto the card. To finish I used a piece of ribbon and placed it onto black card, I put 3 of the brads in place and tied a knot from the ribbon and put it into place.
