Monochrome Mandala

Morning, I hope you are well and have been enjoying the nice weather. The Mozzies are out in force here, so I have been bitten a treat. Getting things sorted with Immigration at the moment, so I am hoping that everything will be sorted by next week and I can get back to posting as normal. Today I thought, I would share a simple but striking way of using the wonderful Henna Easel.

You will need:
'Best Wishes' From the Rose Easel Dies Set
Die'Sire Create a Card Henna Easel Die Set
Matt Black Card 
Centura Pearl White 'Hint of Silver'
Burgundy Double Sided Satin Ribbon

Step 1: Create you base Easel Blank using the dies set with Matt Black Card.

Step 2: Create a mat using the largest die for your topper. Also cut the same using Centura Pearl.

Step 3: Wrap a length of ribbon around your card and secure at the back using double sided tape.

Step 4: From Centura Pearl, use both outer dies to create a slim frame for your base. Then secure with Tacky Glue.

Step 5: Cut your detail into the black topper section. Next place the Centura Pearl behind with the dies still in place, then run through your machine to emboss rather than cut.

Step 6: For the base repeat with the largest detail die to create an accent piece for your base, secure with 3D glue gel.

Step 7: Add a matching bow to finish your card, then add a sentiment in a matching colour.

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today. I hope you have enjoyed the tutorial and the finished card. I do hope you will continue visiting to see what else I have to share with you. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
