Thanks ever so much

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card - quite a simple one.

I cut 2 Spellbinders Die D-Lites Medallion 7 out of Burgundy Card. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels 4 and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Crazy Daisy Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany.

I threaded some White Silky Crush Ribbon through the centre of the medallions and the sentiment die cut and secured it at the back of the background.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Self Adhesive Pearls to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red around the edges.

Pick of the Week Shows today are at 2pm and 8pm on Ideal World and 9am (extra show) and 4pm on Create & Craft. Hope you can join me.

Thanks for stopping by.

  38. Loved all your shows they have been fab. I have had to resist as there has been so much spell binders recently and still have my latest on flexi pay. May treat myself to a couple of the dies individually though! You must be exhausted by now. Your show with Loen was fab she is definitely unique! Have a relaxing weekend. Love Alison
