Summer of '59 Four

Okay, this time its a card, one of the sets from the Cd Summer of '59 which will be Launching on Create & Craft 30th May at 12noon & 4pm. I was working with the red sets, so here's one of my takes on the Ladies who lunch.

This is A4 with a bowed Acetate front, embellished with some Handbag Borders I designed in MTC and are available via the MTC Gallery of @6000 free cut files.
I like to play with size, so bigger smaller, what ever takes my fancy is what is made.
Now the base image/cardbase, is printed on A3, and the Ladies themselves were printed on A4 photo paper, from the set, I think this gives better proportion for me and the card I designed.
I decided on a handbag border, to take the theme  from the woman in Red, and other than different sizing, and the border and acetate this is how the card kit makes up.
The border has been cut from 350gsn plain black cardstock, and I used the Zingster to also draw the definition on the bags. Added some tiny gold Cosminc Shimmer pearlescent pva dots to match the gold colour of the pillars, some Ribbon that the boys sent to go with the kit. Add the sentiment, mount Acetate on either side, and the mount to the front of the card, layering it on the same black card as the handbags.
Striking is the result!
I think this has to be one of my faves, along with the clock, as I like that one too, and both have been really simple to make.
Here's where its from:
So I hope you can tune in and watch the shows.
