Tea Dance Project of the Month

Just loving Craftwork Cards latest collection Tea Dance created by our very talented Steph Davies.

Yesterday I spent a lovely afternoon creating cards for the Project of the Month and it is now available on-line, click here to see what you get.
Here are a few of the cards I made ...

I love the mannequins and created a pleated skirt from the pattern paper, tied ribbon at the waist and created  a tiny spiral rose of the top of the dress.  I cut a scallop circle in half and added dots of Liquid Pearls to each scallop and, of course, some glitter glue!  Both are Platinum colours.


Up close to see the finer details ....


Panels of pattern paper cover the background of my card blank.  I cut a tag from embossed Kraft cardstock, punch a circle and added ribbon.  Coloured the edges of the flowers using Tea Dye distress ink pad and a blending tool before layering them together.  I pleated the message band at the base of the card to look like ribbon.

I created a spiral rose for the centre of the layered flower and highlighted the edges of the petals with Platinum glitter glue.

I covered the card blank with panels of pattern paper and wrapped twine around the top section.  I layered the bunting up and added a pennant sentiment.  Twine bows where attached between the bunting and it was all highlighted with glitter glue and liquid pearls.  The message band was also decorated with dots of liquid pearls.


Up close to see the finer details ....

Gorgeous cards. I've now got obsessed with platinum stickles & liquid pearls since your recommendation. They go so perfectly with the tea dance papers as well! Great inspiration. Helen x
