Sunray by ikki

Hi, I have another card to show you featuring the lovely Home Sweet Home stamps




Materials used:
Black 6 x 6 Card
Cardstock: Bronze Mirri, Bronze Pearl
Acetate
Nestabilities: Grand Squares (sizes 1 and 3)
Stamps – Home Sweet Home
Inkpads: Black Stazon
Eazi-Scoreboard and Stylus

To make this card:
Cut 3 squares with the Nesties Grand Square #3  :  bronze mirri, bronze pearl, acetate -emboss the edge of the bronze mirri with a stylus pen or in your die cutting machine. 
Place the Grand Square #1 in the centre of the bronze mirri, tape in place and cut to make a frame.
On the pearl square, starting in the bottom left corner, make your first line to the opposite corner to start the sunray effect.   Using the double lines to keep the pattern equal - make further lines, always starting from the same bottom corner.
Stamp the acetate with the grass stamp - You need to take care where you stamp  so that the sun is in the centre of your ray. Cut a circle from the bronze mirri and place behind the sun.
Assemble all your layers and add to the base card. 

This set of stamps were a delight to work with and so useful for any occasion.

Until next time, enjoy your crafting and don't forget to leave a comment here and on my blog and on all the other DT's blogs for a chance to win these stamps.  Glenda will be doing a random draw so the more visits you make - the more chances you have of winning.  Some lucky crafter will be a very happy crafter!
