This issue’s free gift is the Hydrangea set and Christina Griffiths is on hand to show you how to make some cards using it.

Bonus project

Here is the FREE bonus project from Ingrid Vichova on page 14 of Australian Simply Cards 115.


You will need

- free gifts – white cardstock – Onyx Black VersaFine inkpad – Faber-Castell Gelatos – gold Xcut 
adhesive sheet – acetate – Tonic Studios Mixed Oval Layering dies – manual die-cutting machine

Simply make

1. Create a card blank and affix three narrow strips of gold adhesive sheet along the top of the card blank. 2. Scribble a touch of Gelato onto a piece of a plastic, add a tiny bit of water and mix. Now, touch the acetate onto a panel of white cardstock. Continue building up until you’re happy with the coverage, then leave to dry. 3. Stamp the sentiment in the centre using black ink, colour the images using gelatos and die-cut using the oval die. 4. Die-cut a scalloped oval shape from white cardstock, slightly larger than the sentiment panel. Trim the top from both pieces as shown and affix together using 3D foam pads, then attach to the card front, aligning with the bottom gold strip, to finish.
