Reach for the Stars

Hi Bloggers.

Here's a really easy card featuring the Roundabout Cut, Fold & Tuck.

For the background, I ran some Coconut White card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Espresso Adirondack Die Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut 2 borders out of Foundations Floral Dream paper using the Persian Accents die set.

I cut 2 of the middle sized Roundabout CFT out of the same Foundations paper and folded and tucked them. I added an 8mm Black Pearl to the centre of each of them.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Dreamy Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Labels 25 and inked through the die with Espresso.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Morning Julia,
    Soft and gentle colours today very pretty. Must put some CFT dies on my Christmas list.

  13. Morning julia, a really nice card I'm not sure about
    the colour it is quite Grey on my screen so I don't think it is showing properly. nancyd xx

  14. Looks a tad grey to me too, but this would work with any colour! Must get that border set sometime, it's really pretty.

  15. Morning Julia. A really nice card, as usual. It does look a bit grey but the border is really pretty. I really love yesterday's though - very striking. Must try to get hold of the ribbon before it all goes.

  16. Morning Julia, love this card, fab colours and i love the borders - my fav to use at the moment. Emma

  17. Good morning Julia
    What a beautiful card and at least I have all these dies and embossing folder so the credit card can rest easy. Perhaps you could give a demo of how to extend a pattern with an embossing folder next time you are on C & C, it would be most helpful to me and I am sure lots of other people too.

    1. I do try to do this on nearly every show. Regards, Julia.

  18. Hello Julia, This is a stunning card, love the unusual colours, the CFT dies are so versatile and the borders are fab.
    Have a great day everyone.

  22. Hi Julia,
