I came across this technique whilst browsing through Blog Land. . . . . As you do!!! It had immediate appeal . . . to me anyway and it looked simple so I had a go. Had to buy 4 different shades of card first. Such yummy colours to choose from. Aren't we just so spoilt??? Anyway you can see what I chose after much deliberation. I made number 2 card first (don't quite know why it didn't come out as number 1. It was supposed to. Anyway getting back to number 2 card . . . It is pretty basic but you need to be accurate. Nothing looks worse than strips of card which don't quite line up top and bottom!!! I jazzed my strips up a bit by embossing them. Now I got to thinking outside the square. Card pictured as number 3 came next. I wanted to use a set of nesties so came up with the idea of using double sided sticky sheet to stick my strips to before cutting my largest Labels 20 and then embossing again. I punched flowers in the four colours of card to mount on a dark green label. The last one was just a straight cutting of the 4 sizes of Labels 20 in the 4 shades of blue. Added a filigree butterfly and some pearls and voila. There we have it. I am hoping this post works. I haven't been able to post to my Blog since FOREVER. Every time I try it error out so I am trying Google Chrome instead of Internet Explorer. Not as familiar with this so I have my fingers crossed!!!
