A little greeting

Hi Bloggers.

Quite a clean and simple card today -

I started by making my frame. I placed the largest die in the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B Die Set onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I added a couple of Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Dies and ran them all through the Grand Calibur using the emboss sandwich. I removed the inner die and ran the remaining 2 dies through the Calibur using the Cut sandwich. I matted the frame onto a piece of Teal Card cut using the largest die in the 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set using 3d Foam.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Floral Assortment Dies out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink using a Smoothie. I added this to the centre of my frame using 3d Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Tulip Elements Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Floral Assortment Set and inked through the die with Peacock Feathers. I cut the middle die from the same set and again inked through the die with Peacock Feathers.

I assembled the card as shown adding a few White Pearls and piercing around the edges.

Kathryn's done a blog post about our trip to Skegness last weekend. You can see it here.

Thanks for stopping by.

  16. Hello Julia and all

    Lovely card. I think this layout shows the Floral Assortment dies well. The darker shade of the Teal really picks out the detail. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes.

    Love teal and used this way it's not overpowering, the whole card still looks delicate, love the way you have overlaped the fancy edge of the Spellbinder die over the frame and love the soft colour of the inking, oooh just love it!
    Clicked on the link for your daughter's blog, the photos are lovely, beach is stunning and your happy smiles just beautiful!
