DCM Challenge - It's a Wrap!

Oh I do love doing the DCM challenges, but just recently I'm afraid I've been having to give them a miss. Not this time though, I managed to get one done. Here's the brief...

It's a Wrap

No, not the kind stuffed with Chicken & Cesar Salad or the woolly kind you put around your shoulders to keep you warm, mind you, the way our summer is going I think we could all do with one of those!I would like you to give your card a coat made of acetate, vellum or anything for that matter. As long as it ‘wraps’ around the outside of your card, anything goes!

Well, this card took me aaaages because I was making it up as I went along, I came up with this herring bone style pocket card, I've never seen one quite like it before so who knows, I might have a new invention- probably not though, who knows.

I cut three sections which I 'wrapped' around the middle piece to create the herring bone effect.
I then made some tags which I printed and cut out via my Silhouette. The images are from the Charmed digital download -cat collection. and the papers and brad are K&Company.

It may have taken ages and it nearly went in the bin but I'm glad I persevered.

Thanks for looking.xxx

Lovely to have you back Louly…we missed you.

I’m so glad that you persevered with your card because it’s simply stunning.
The paper and colours you’ve used go together so well and I for one would love to see a little tutorial on how you made it.
