Wishing you all the Happiest of Things

Hi Bloggers.

A card full of corners today.

I cut 4 of the corners from the Spellbinders Diamond Strips & Accents CFT die set out of Foundations Paper. I inked through the die on each of them with Caramel Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I folded and tucked all of them. I cut 4 corners backers out of Foundations Shades Paper and mounted the CFT corners on to them using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I ran some Milk card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 M-Bossabilities Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Celebration Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Exquisite Circles dies and inked through the die with Caramel. I cut another Exquisite Circle out of tan card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  4. Julia,
    I was going to use those dies today, so nice card for inspiration. Thanks and happy Friday

  5. Morning Julia, I love this card, the corners make a truly beautiful frame, I love it.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  6. Good Morning Julia,
    This is quiet striking, this set of CFT dies, are to me, quiet masculine, I cannot make my mind up if I like them or not, I like the other set more, so I will sit on the fence today.
    Have a great day.

  7. Hi Julia. This is such an unusual card. I love it.

  9. Morning Julia different but i like it would do well as a male card xx hazel

  10. Good morning Julia, What a brilliant card, very striking, would be a great male card. Thank you for the inspiration.
    Have a great day everyone.

  11. Morning Julia,
    Not sure about this one like the colours, but it would make a great male card,
    Have a good day.

  12. Hi Julia

    This card is very different and I am uncertain whether I like these dies. It may be your choice of colour but it seems too busy for me it jars a little but when I imagine it in say pastel colours I think it could work very well.

    I am still not taken with the these CFT dies they feel a little too contrived and predictable form, giving out too much of a fixed outcome. I like more movement,but that is just me and it would not do for us all to like the same things would it? :)

    Happy Crafting Julia

  13. Not sure on the colour combo of this one!

  14. Love what you have done with these dies - I am still finding out what they can be used for so this is another idea - thanks

  15. Morning Julia, Im not sure about this one, only because it makes my eyes go funny looking at it! Not sure if thats just the photo, love the colour combo. Emma

  16. Morning Julia

    Sorry but I am not sure about this one at all, I am not keen on those cut tuck and fold dies.

    They always look too busy for my taste

    Keep up the good work.

  18. Morning Julia, I really like this one I have some of the first
    CFT dies but don't use them a lot but you have made this one look
    really good I like the colour too. Nancyd xx

  19. Really stunning card Julia. I wasn't keen on these dies but this card is really selling them to me!

  20. Hi Julia, I remember the designs when u had to cut them out yourself, great you have made it easy for us now, lovely card

  21. Hi julia well this card has divided oppinion hasn't it!! I was one of the people who weren't quite sure about the cft dies,but I have to say todays card is very good and could persuade me to buy them!! I like how you have made a frame with them and I think they would be so suitable for men,you could put a stamped image in the middle too. Thanks for the inspiration love lesley

  22. Oh Julia you have been busy what a lot of work you have put into this lovely card it will lend itself to other colourways too very easily, well done.

  23. I'm another "not sure" I'm afraid Julia, I do like the cut fold and tuck dies so maybe it's the colour combination I'm not so keen on

    xx Sandra

  24. not mad about this card its a bit busy for small bits but not all together ,sorry.Laura O

  25. I have these dies, so I will probably have a go at the design, but perhaps with a different colour scheme. I have some double sided card (dark and pastel) so they will be ideal.

  26. Good masculine card - but what a lot of work! X
