Jem's Designs, 1

Right just recently, I have obtained quite a few Jem's Designs Cd's, and this is one of the Oldies I got from Jems designs.
This one's from the Elegant Beauties CD. Now I have run out of A4 Gloss card, so am having to resort to using supersmooth at the moment, the reason I say this is that the designs look outstanding on gloss card, and I really need to pop to Costco one day and pick up a new box. But beggars cant be choosers, and I wanted to play, and am lucky enough to have a colour Laser printer, which creates a nice but more muted sheen on supersmooth paper.
I printed off some of the sheets from the Elegant Beauties 8 folder, and decoupaged the woman.
I wanted a shaped card for this, so dug out my Happy Cut, and Go Kreate XXL Fancy Frames die, and some dark red card stock, and cut a shaped A5 Card base, then folded half of the front back on itself. I used some red Mirri on the inside of the card, and matted the Backing paper onto it.
The front panel, is from the gatefold Sheet, and as I had already decoupaged it all I had to do was add some glitter on the swirls, and matt it onto the card.
I used a ribbon and some tags from the finishing sheet to finish the inside of the card, and I really like it.

Hugs

Stunner Lou. Love the Elegant Beauties cd - it's usually within arms reach for me. Very popular as well as great fun to play with. Love the shapes you used here. It really stands out. Well done.
Happy crafting, Emer
