Heart to Heart

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by cutting the 2 largest dies from the Spellbinders Intertwined Spirals Die Set together out of one of the papers from Sue Wilson's Classic Elegance 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I threaded some Craft Consortium Duck Egg Satin Ribbon through it as shown and matted onto a piece of Coconut White Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Wedding Inner Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the circle die in the Intertwined Spirals Set. .

I made a couple of shoes using the Spellbinders Ladies Shoe Die Set (currently out of stock - will order more when I can) out of more of Sue's paper, Coconut White Card and Aqua Card. I added a Craft Consortium Duck Egg Resin Flowers to each of them.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of the Duck Egg Satin Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Vintage Pearl Charm.

I assembled the card as shown piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Good news for those of you who are wanting to buy the Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles die set - I spotted that some had just come back into stock at Creative Expressions so I grabbed them. I should get them on Friday hopefully. I'll let you know as soon as they're loaded onto my website.

Thanks for stopping by.
