Friends Like You Brighten my Life

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from John Lockwood's new Cherry Blossom Elements Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Magenta Hue Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics.

I stamped some of the single blossom stamps onto a separate piece of card. I cut them out, shaped them and added them to the previously stamped frame.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Triple Floral Die Set. At the emboss stage I added the next size die down to get the faux pierced look. I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I went around the edges with the Magenta Hue Archival and added a White 8mm Pearl to each corner.

I tied a bow using Antique White Satin Ribbon and added a Crystal Sparkler to the centre.

I made a couple of Decorative Stick Pins using Creative Expressions Stick Pin Elements and Glossy Accents. Once dry, I added them to the back of my bow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  16. Hello Julia and all

    Lovely card. I really like the colour combination and the centre stamped panel. Thanks for sharing.

    Between Sue and yourself (Mrs Spellbinders Embassador) your costing me a fortune in dies, I think it was about 12 sets yesterday. I will have to be good for a little while.

    Best wishes.
