Double Dome card with Tutorial.

I made this Double dome card using Chloe's stamps, 3 Petal large & small, large swirl & bow. 
Pearl Centura card. 
I thought you might like a picture tut so here you are;

A4 card halved then trim to length 71/2 inches.

Cut two pieces of card the same sizes 71/2 by 71/2 inches.

Score 1/2" twice down each side

Repeat on both sqaures.
Decide which shapes you want for the apertures.
 I have used Spellbinders baubles in the largest two sizes.
Cut the apertures as shown. making sure they are in the right positions.

I stamped on the largest bauble for the inside decoration. I stuck with wet glue so I could get it in the right position.

I stuck DST on each side then place the smallest aperture first.
I decorated the top layer with the flourish'

Place directly on top of the bottom layer.

Lest We Forget!

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

God Bless our Heroes Past & Present.

I saw this on Enjays blog .
I think it is just perfect for today.

Thank for calling today!
