Evening all. It was a glorious evening here tonight, I hear we are due for rain tomorrow, but it was beautiful here this eve - didn't see a lot of it tho - busy, busy. Just time to pop up a card for you.
I don't think I have even shown you the Brogue dies yet so I'll begin with this card. Super simple.
This is one of the dies in the new Brogues dies set that we just released. The brogue dies were meant to compliment the masculine sets at WMS, such as My Kind of Guy, but they are hugely versatile, I can see lots of projects benefiting from a brogue border.
For this evening's card, I used the plain border - it produces a brogue pattern on one side of the cut and a handy pinked edge on the other side. I made my card with a bunch of these borders.
I just cut five borders with the die and taped a piece of contrasting card along the back side of each cut. I arranged them in a pleasing layout and trimmed them to suit my card front size. I used a little foam tape on some of them to give abit of rise.
I die cut a hello sentiment (using this die) in white and then again in each of the 5 contrasting colours. I separated a letter from each colour and stuck those to the reverse of my white 'hello' - love how these cast a little rainbow shadow to match my colour pops. Quite like this wee card!
These brogue dies have lots and lots of little circles to cut and I like to use a stiff brush to help me just pop those all out. I get rid of most of them this way and only have to poke one or two stubborn circles out if I'm using thick card. Paper just seems to come away perfectly every time.
Also, can you see something interesting here?
What if I showed it to you in...gold?
These are the little negative shapes produced by the brogue dies - these make great confetti for shaker cards - I'm gathering a little bottle-full of gold ones!
Hope it tickles!
