I am exhausted. This card has taken the best part of 4 hours to put together! Too fiddly by far. It was inspired by this card here, & by all the fab 'suspended tree' cards in the latest SSS release. Part of the card front folds down to allow the chevron tree to hang in the middle of the card.
I tried a number of different methods to get the chevrons to dangle independently. The most successful (& most fiddly...) was to make individual links out of thread. I must have used about 5 metres of thread just to get these few links.
By sheer dumb luck, among the very few sequins in my possession were a handful that just matched the Soft Pool ink. Hurray! I strung these on (yet more) gold thread & held them in place on the line by a tiny dot of glossy accents.
The photo frame is an adjustment of the Sizzix dies. I cut a piece of card the right width first & then put the die half way through twice, once from each side. Hope that makes sense.
