Mini Folded Album

Well!!!!  Confusion confusion - Keep Calm............... And .....................HURRY UP!!!

Late and sorry but things had to be changed on the very last minute and when I say very last I really do mean it however I got there in the end so without the fuss and circumstance here we go for this week.........

The firs project as you may of already gathered is not a card this time but a Mini Folded Album which could be used for a variety of different things.

All I needed to complete this little project was a couple of Distress Ink Pads - Tumbled Glass and Shabby Shutters, my Collall All purpose glue and some Cosmic Shimmer glue.

 The Mini Album comes on a 12 x 12 sheet and is ready die cut for you so all you need to do is pop it out embellish to your hearts content, there are lots of extra pieces on the sheet for this but I have added in some extras.  The corners and flourishes are all from Xcut Dies. The flower on the front of the album is also made up from an Xcut Die. I used a Sanding Block to remove any little pips left behind once the Album was taken from the sheet.

 I have added some white panels to the inside which I stamped with a Stampendous Cling rubber stamp which is called Wine Labels. The corners have been punched with a Fiskars Corner Slots punch and this would allow you to add in some photo's or things like recipe cards etc....
 Onto our card this week which is a 6 x 6
square base card.

The background which measures 5.5 x 5.5 inches has been created using the same stamp and Tumbled Glass ink pad.
I have used some Cosmic Shimmer Flake and Glitter glue onto cut and dry foam to stencil through my sequin waste and then added my Gilding Flakes for that metallic look.

As you can see I have used the same dies again and the centre panel which is 3 and a quarter inches square has been embossed with my Regency Swirls Die'sire embossing folder.
 I have deepened the edge of the background panel with some Black Soot Distress Ink

Ta! Da!  Didn't think I'd make it this week.

See you soon x
