Because I Care

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another sample card from this week's Spellbinders Pick of the Day.

This is quite a simple card but with change of sentiment and/or colour it could be used for any occasion - a 'store cupboard' card, if you like.

The background was made using the Couture Creations Timeless Embossing Folder and some pale blue card through the Grand Calibur. I edged it with Adirondack Aqua Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped a piece of Sky Blue American Seam Binding around the centre securing it at the back.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Celebration Stamp Set and cut it out using the largest of the Spellbinders Exquisite Circles and inked through the die with Aqua ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut the frame out of pale blue card using the Spellbinders Botanical Swirls & Accents die set and inked through the die with Aqua.

I tied a messy bow using 3 lengths of sky blue American Seam Binding and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding 3 5mm Pearls in White in the top left hand corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

By the way this blog is being featured in the December issue of Papercraft Inspirations Magazine with the card in this post.

Thanks for stopping by.

  28. Hi Julia , I love all of your cards and although I follow your blog I think this is the 1st time that I have thought to leave a comment. I have watched all of your shows on C&C today and Ideal World last night and thoroughly enjoyed and laughed along with you. I emailed in quite a few times with different emails hoping for a chance to win one of your lovely cards...... never mind, maybe one day. I actually had 2 of them read out and I sent in the photo of the Christmas card that I had made with the Holiday tree dies and Holiday Magic Mbossibilities.
    Congratulations on your blog being in the magazine next month, I used to subscribe to it.
    Oh well, 5 more hrs til your next card is in here - can't wait to see.
    Have a good day and thanks for your lovely inspiration,
    Julie x
