Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Accents and Labels

I have a card share today that is not my normal type of card.  It is an Art Deco card featuring the Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Accents and Labels Dies.

I created the card for Splitcoaststampers’ Inspiration Challenge hosted by Steph (SmilynStef).  She picked this great site, “I don’t wear dresses”, from which to draw inspiration when creating. This photo on the site was my inspiration for the card.  It is a portrait of a noblewoman, ca. 1580.  You can read about the portrait HERE and see a larger picture of her HERE.

I love the red and gold in the woman’s dress and its high collar. I thought the red die cut panel would be a good representation of the high collar as well as reflecting the color of her dress. I used SU Brush Gold Card Stock to reflect the gold in the dress. I also used SU Gold Metallic Tape behind the red panel. To the left of the card, I added ribbon flowers and some beads above and below the flowers.


I enjoyed making the card, and I hope you enjoy viewing it.

ISAIAH 45:22-25

“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God and there is no other. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked; Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear.  They will say of me, ‘In the Lord alone are righteousness and strength.’  All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame.  But in the Lord all the descendants of Israel will be found righteous and will exult.”
