Naughty or Nice

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing a card which was going to be a demo on the 1pm show on 8th March but things have changed and I'm now doing 3 Spellbinders shows and the stamps will be featured in the shows on 24th March - but that could change!

I may not get to demo this card but I thought I's share it anyway as I really like it.

I stamped the image from the Vintage Lingerie Stamp Set onto some white card using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink while still in the die.

Next I cut out a larger Romantic Rectangle with burgundy card. This time I added the Small Polka Dots Mask from That Special Touch underneath the die when I passed it through the machine to emboss (remember to have the die cutting edge face up, away from the mask). I really like doing this as it adds texture to the card.

I ran 2 pieces of white card through the Cuttlebug with the Spellbinders M-Bossibilities Regal folder (did not have a raspberry adapter plate for the Grand Calibur at the time). I joined them together and added some Basque Red Vintage Ribbon to hide the join. I cut 2 borders from the Spellbinders Lattice Accents (designed by Sue Wilson). I inked through the die with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and added them to either side of my card with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the sentiment using Plum Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using the tag from the Spellbinders Antique Frames and Accents die set and inked with Aged Mahogany while still in the die.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Basque Red Vintage Ribbon. I added a buckle from the Spellbinders Ribbon Buckles set and a red button from my stash with some red Baker's Twine through it.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks for your lovely comments - sadly I don't own these dies. They're on loan from Christine Emberson (the only English person on the Spellbinders Design Team). Julia.
