Gold Camp

So yes, I am Summer Card Camp 2 participant, and this card is inspired by Jennifer Rzasa's die cutting technique, and yes, that was back in week one and yes, it's now week 3 and the class is almost over - did I mention I'd been busy this month?!?!?   I've been watching the videos each evening whilst taking a bath to cool down in the heat (with my laptop perched on the toilet lol!) but I've not had time to try any of the cool stuff I'd learnt - until now - so I'm playing catch up this weekend hopefully!

This is also my entry for this week's CASology challenge where the cue word is gold - I thought making a golden wedding card would be the perfect opportunity to play with the double-die-cutting on my letters.  The dies are memory box are were a half price bargain at Summer Crafting at Doncaster the other weekend - cut from gold card stock, and then I cut a bit out of each letter with the next letter in the word at different heights to add interest.  I gold embossed the word wedding (PTI quilled elegance) and the edge of the kraft panel before mounting to a kraft base card. 


  1. Love this - it manages to be fun and elegant at the same time! I love that technique of double-cutting the letters - not only clever, but a great way to make longer words fit on the front of a card! lol! Thanks so much for playing along with us at CASology this week!

  2. Absolutely fabulous! As Ardyth says both elegant and fun! Love the way you've layered the letters and the gold border is super. Great work.

    I've been following Summer Camp too, sadly not been able to make any cards - holiday got in the way :)

  3. I agree, this has whymsy and also clean elegance too! Great Combo!

    Thanks for joining in the Gold Glam FUN this week at CASology!

  4. Oh, Tara, your card is so beautiful! I'm not a fan of gold, but in this case I love it. Perfect colours for this occasion.

  5. Simply divine. I love the little notches you cut out to join the letters. Well done:)

  6. Love the gold/kraft combination! The technique of double cutting the letters works perfectly here! So glad you joined us at CASology this week!
