Inspiration by Gwyneth - May

Good Morning Everybody!
Today's make is a card with an illuminated scene that has a battery opperated tea-light inside.  So as not to distract from the illuminated image I've kept the base of the card quite plain. I hope you like it.

Stamping Dragon Designs Item:
  • "Moonlight Unicorn Sillohette" - found - Here - in the shop.
300gsm, Super Smooth white cardstock; Gold coloured printable acetate; Black Bazzil Basics cardstock; White Bazzil Basics cardstock; Gold Graph'it Shake; Red Backed double sided tape; Glue Gel

Brother ScanNcut; Scissors; Hougie Board; Battery operated tea-light.

Closer look at part of creation - the gold edging is very faint - just catching the light with a twinkle rather than being "in your face" distracting from the main image.

The image was printed twice at the same size, once onto white cardstock and once onto gold printable acetate. I then cut the card printed one along the line on the image and also around 1cm outside that - to use as a frame.  I glued this over the acetate one becure cutting the acetate the same size as the frame.  I cut out the base card using my ScanNCut, making an aperture in the front piece the same size as the frame centre of my topper.  I also cut out a star out of white cardstock.  I used my Hougie board to score in from both ends of front and back twice and folded and burnished.  The outside "flaps" of both sides were attached front to back using tape.  I cut the star in half and glued the halves on either side of card "wings".  I finished by going around the outside of the card and the circle using the "Shake" marker.

And that is it from me for today.
