Another sneaky peek

Hi Bloggers.

Had a great day at my Milton Keynes Workshop yesterday - lots of laughs and great crafting.

Here's today's sneak peek from tomorrow's show -

A simple card but I think it shows off the new Background Savy Die from Couture Creations called Touch of Love. I cut it out of Milk Card and matted it onto a piece of Cobalt Card cut out using Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics B. I made a frame using a couple of Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Dies. I ran it through the Grand Calibur using the emboss sandwich with the Wired Mask. I removed the mask and ran it through the Calibur with the cut sandwich.

I cut the Couture Creations Love Everyday Essentials Die out of Cobalt Card and added it to the frame.

I made a card blank out of Milk Card using the largest die in the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set by scoring the card half fold A5 then securing the die with one of the cutting edges outside the fold and passing it through the Grand Calibur.

Thanks for stopping by.
