Thinking of you today

Hi Bloggers.

I'm running my first workshop of the year in Yardley Gobion today. Some lovely cards for the ladies to make - should be a good day.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the new Creative Expressions Eternal Ivy Embossing Folder.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Accents Die Set out of Duck Egg Card. I slotted a die from the Spellbinders Astoria Labels Die Set into the centre of the die cut and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine to cut the centre out to make a frame.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Elegant Sentiments onto Coconut White Card using Watering Can Archival. I covered it with a piece of Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Snow. I cut it out using the middle die in the same die set.

I cut all 3 dies in the Spellbinders Shells Duality Die Set together out of Coconut White Card. I then cut just the 2 outer dies in the set together out of Duck Egg Card and glued the 2 die cuts together.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of 5mm White Pearls.

I'll be back tomorrow with a sneak peek from Monday's Justrite One Day Special on Hochanda.

Thanks for stopping by.
