Tantalizing Turquoise

If you joined us last week at CD Sunday Challenges you would have read how we are still a weekly challenge blog but the team has been divided so we can each share a week on and a week off, last week were Team A and I am here along with Team B. I would first like to wish everyone of you a very happy new Year and mostly for those who have suffered through illness or caring for those in need, my thoughts go with you, hoping this year will be less stressful and show signs of either settlement or improvement. 
So, for the first of Team B's challenge we thank Wendy for choosing Tantalizing Turquoise - a very nice and I believe a popular colour.  I do like shaped cards and some do suit it more than others, with Art Deco I thought this card really suited being shaped around the design. I downloaded the main image, which is the complete front of the card, cut it out and stuck to a heavier black card,  then I drew around it on another piece of the black card. Cut that out, matched the two up and marked across the second curved shape, scored this. Then I glued only the upper part of the shape, for the card to open and stand. 
Recipe for the card
White card - Black card stock
Debbie Moore Art Deco - Glamour DVD
Glossy Accents Crystal Glitter
Turquoise Gemstones
The Design Team have some wonderful inspiration, so please do pop over to see the blog and hopefully, I'll be visiting and commenting on your Tantalizing Turquoise card which for our challenges must have something or everything from a craft CD. 


  1. Such an elegant image and I love the card shape.

  2. This is great Caz. When I first looked at it I thought you'd split the image and made an easel card.....can you see what I mean. Thank you for the tutorial. I think my crafters will like your idea so I'll be sharing with them if that's Ok. Hugs Wynn xx

  3. I love art deco and the colour is fabulous. Very clever of you to design the way the card opens.
