Arch by Sioux Jenneys

Hello everyone! It's my turn again and I'm here to share a card :)

1. I cut some of the fabulous Core-dinations card stock and made an A6 size card with the textured side as the is sturdy enough to do this which is great and it is on special offer this month here :)
2. I cut decorative shape out of the front and the same shape out of a lighter colour of Core-dinations.

3. Stamp the arched window from the Architecture 1 plate in Archival sepia (second stamping) onto the lighter coloured shape using the smooth side of the card stock and colour the edges with Distress Ink rusty hinge......add the word "Arch" from the same plate in Archival black.

4. Distress the card front with a sanding tool to bring out the lovely texture of the card stock.

5. Add double sided tape to the arch panel....close the card and line up the opening and the panel before sticking it to the inside.

6. Stamp the column from the Architecture 1 plate in Distress Ink walnut stain onto the smooth side of rusty hinge colour Core-dinations and cut out...distressing the edges with a paper distress tool.....attach to the front panel with dimensional pads.

7. Stamp the word "Column" from the same plate onto the smooth side of a wild honey shade of Core-dinations and distress the edges with a sanding tool.

8. Add an Ideaology muse token to the bottom corner to finish.

Oh! I added the same shaped panel in a plain colour to the back of the card so that a greeting can be added later ;)

See you again soon!
xoxo Sioux
