Once I had done that it was time to matt and layer. This was straightforward, one layer blue & one layer aqua. I looked at the stitched part again and thought there is too much white card showing - it needs a corner embellishment. I looked through my dies - no corner dies suitable. Then I found the Cheery Lynn Mexican tile die. Great I thought i would cut it out in blue and then chop off each corner to use instead. Perfect !!!!
Next - background - no suitable papers - So had a brainwave (doesn't happen too often so have to run with it LOL !!). I will cut out the middle section of the Mexican tile die in blue and aqua and lay it down as tiles for my background paper. I cut 6 blue and 6 aqua. Laid it out - but then decided to have the corners in aqua and the middles in blue. I stuck the aqua ones down onto my base card and then inspiration struck again !!! (Twice in one afternoon LOL !!) I would off-set the blue ones.....hey presto a card is born.
Hope you agree that this card worked out well.
Enjoy your Sunday Roast dinner...beef for me today. x
