A Ladies' Diary Card By Sue W.

Hi Everyone,
Our DT Gal Sue has created a lovely Card to share today. 
I hope you enjoy it.

1.         Trim, score and fold smooth white card to make a 4 x 8.5 inch side fold card.
2.         Stamp the image to X-Press It blending card. Colour image with Ranger’s Distress markers (spun sugar, tumbled glass and scattered straw).  Blend with Prisma pencils.
3.         Die cut image using a Grand Nestabilities Labels Four die. (If 1 is the smallest die, use no.3).  Trim of the right hand size to fit card front and sponge around the image using Distress ink, tattered rose.
4.         Trim a piece of pink/cream dsp to fit the bottom 1/3 of the card front and using a Scor-Pal,  score a diagonal grid over the dsp.  Add to front of card base.
5.         Trim a second piece of dsp for the top 2/3 of the card front and adhere to card.
6.         Using Spellbinder’s borderabilities Grand 12” Classic Lace die cut a piece of cream dsp to sit over the 2/3 join. Adhere to card front.
7.         Hand cut the ‘Ladies Diary’ banner from a sheet of dsp, using a craft knife for the smaller sections.
8.         Adhere the coloured image to the card front then add the banner, which overlaps the image slightly.
9.         To the centre of the flowers on the banner add some Star Dust Stickles.
10.       To complete the card front, add the Prima Flower, adhering with Art Glitter dries clear adhesive.

Sue said for the inside of her card:
She layered the inside right-hand side with more dsp.
She also added a small vintage calendar in two six-month blocks.  This was a digital download from Crafty Secrets that printed as an A4 sheet. Sue printed hers, then cut it to size.
Stacked in two piles she used Art Glitter dries clear adhesive across the top of each stack. A Bulldog clip holds each stack until the glue is dry.
To attach the calendar to the card she just added three strips of X-Press It high tack double-sided tape.
