I've been thinking of you

Hi Bloggers,

This card features the gorgeous new Spellbinders Antique Frames and Accents die set. I think it could be suitable to give to a man, what do you think?

I ran a piece of white card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Nobility Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I dusted a piece of black card with my anti static bag and cut a border and the frame from the Spellbinders Antique Frames and Accents die set.

I removed the centre piece from the frame and stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Metallic Embossing Powder.

I inked though the border and frame dies with the Perfect Medium using Cut & Dry Foam. I carefully removed the pieces from the die, added the Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.

I assembled the card as shown and added some Black Glass Glintz, some black pearl pva dots and a bow tied with 2 lengths of black American Seam Binding.

I hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
