Have a Truly Fabulous Day!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card using up some demo bits -

More bits from my demo box today. The decorative border at the bottom is from a Hochanda show. It's cut using Spellbinders Classic Postage Edge Edgeabilities and Classic Ric Rac Edgeabilities. I used a paper from Phill's Decadent Damask 8 x 8 Paper Pad and cut a decorative edge using Spellbinders Classic Bracket Edgeabilities.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Plum Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 49 Decorative Accents. I cut the corresponding sized die in the Spellbinders Labels 49 Die Set out of Rich Plim Card. I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader Die Set out of Coconut White Card and threaded Raisin Satin Ribbon through the holes and slits.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of the wider ribbon in the pack. I added a flower from my bit box which was made out of Mauve Card using Spellbinders Flower Play. I added CS Dries Clear Glue and then CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.

A couple of corners from my bit box which were cut using Spellbinders Lace Doily Accents.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
