Good morning everyone and welcome to my blog , today I am sharing with you a brand new launch from Tonic Studios the waterfall die sets there are two sets Cascading hearts & Bouquets & banners .
To create this card you need :-
Bouquet & banners waterfall die set
Rococo men's- football shoes
Rococo men's grass from the golf set
Rococo men's football
Rococo wild buildables panda set - trophy cup
Alphabet die set
Family sentiments - Uncle
Framed screens- garden trellis/ Blocked parquet
Craft perfect pistachio green
Craft perfect fern green
Craft perfect Bright White
Craft perfect cornflower blue
Craft perfect Black
Black 300gsm black base card stock
The card blank is a 7x7 gate fold card with mat & layers inside the card the waterfall mechanism is in white with Black and white layers and the layers for this card have been kept plain with no lacy detail added, on each layer you have no 1 on the top layer inside the banner, going down it's a man's theme so you have a football, football boot and a trophy cup from the panda buildables set. The bottom of the waterfall has a small piece of blue ribbon for a pulley, remember when you are putting the mechanism together to really give the score lines a good crease and when you place the decorative toppers to place them to the top line not over the line this will make sure it works beautifully .
The outside on the card is decorated using the panels as they remind me of a football net, again mat and layers in cornflower blue craft perfect and Bright White Craft perfect , for decoration the football boot and grass was added and from the family sentiments set uncle was cut in white and backed on black Craft perfect and then placed over half the card front.
Materials needed to create this card
Cascading Hearts waterfall die set
Bowscale Layering die sets
Ivory craft perfect
Ivory base card stock
Speciality gold satin card stock
Nuvo drops ivory seashell
The base card was created cutting two of the largest dies and placing a score line in the back and then gluing the front panel to the tab you created this gives you a beautiful shaped card base then with mat and layers with the beautiful luxury gold speciality card and ivory craft perfect the waterfall mechanism is made with a 280 gsm cream card stock again as before make sure all the score lines are burnished and when you place the hearts to the base you place then up to the line this is very important, because if you go over the line the mechanism won't work properly, also make sure your hearts are lined up so they are straight.
The top piece of card the waterfall is attached to has a little more detail added but die cutting into each corner of the card stock with the detailed lacy heart that's in the waterfall set.
I was thinking of a golden wedding Anniversary with this card or a wedding.
Each heart has been cut out in ivory craft perfect and gold satin and the detail cut into the ivory card so the gold just pops through. You could add photos or secret messages on each heart or the date they met lots of little finishing touches could be made to personalise this card or project.
