Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This card uses a couple of the new Spellbinders Christmas dies.

I started by trimming a piece of Coconut White Card to 4 1/4" wide. I positioned the Spellbinders Noel Strip Die towards the bottom of the card and ran it through the Grand Calibur. I backed it onto a piece of Aqua Card.

I cut a piece of Coconut White Card using Spellbinders 5 x 7 Matting Basics B and then embossed it using the Creative Expressions Sparkle Squares Embossing Folder

I cut the Spellbinders Shining Star Die out of Coconut White Card 3 times. On one of them I added Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Star Twinkles using a little piece of Cut n Dry Foam. Once dry, I glued all 3 die cuts together using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Corners and some White 5mm Pearls.

Don't forget to pop by later to see you you have won last Friday's card.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I like the simplicity of this card. Would look good in other colours too as the photo makes the Aqua / coconut a bit dull.
