Especially for You

Hi Bloggers.

This is the last card I have to share with you that I prepared for the Spellbinders Shows last week. I really faffed around with this card - took hours to get to the point where I was reasonably happy with it!

The backing paper is K & Co paper that I've had for a number of years. I cut the large Lattice Motif and 2 x corners from ivory card using the Spellbinders Lattice Motifs die set. I inked with Bundled Sage Distress Ink while still in the die.

I then cut a border and 2 x leaves from the Damask Accents die set, 2 different buckles from the Ribbon Buckles set, a small circle nestie and a square motif from the Lattice Motifs die set. I did not bother to emboss or ink the Damask border. I inked the others with the Bundled Sage. I cut, embossed and inked 2 more leaves.

I made a flower from the damask border as shown in this post. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Coffee Archival.

I assembled the card as shown and added a bow made from 3 lengths of ivory vintage ribbon. I finished the card with dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl.

Let me know what you think of the card.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. This is a stunning card .Melanie

  2. I know what you mean about struggling to get the right finished look on a card - do it often lol. I really think it was worth it here though. The colours are soft and the finished look is really stunning

  3. Beautiful card love the trellis dies
    Well done
