Today I’m going to share a few projects featuring crushed Candi. First up is a tent card which I made using the Boutique Floral collection.
Here is a circle card made using the Shabby Chic collection. I’ve had this collection for a while but haven’t used it until now.
Here is another circle card using Shabby Chic – this time I have used the Candi to edge the actual card blank.
I’ve got a little tip to share relating to the circle cards which I find helps them to stand up better. I always have the spine of the card at the top and score the inside of the card parallel to the spine at 1.5cm. I then stick the back to the front on the 1.5cm section between the spine and the score line. I also cut a narrow (3 or 4mm) strip from the bottom of the inside of the card so it is stabilised when standing up and won’t roll to one side.
Finally here is a canvas complete with secret message which I made using the Decadence collection for the recent shows on Create and Craft.
I used the Candi to edge the chipboard heart. Pearlescent Candi tends to take on the appearance of leather when crushed. Here’s a close up:
That’s all for now but I’d love to know what you think of these makes so please do leave me some comments.
