Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

I started with a piece of Coconut White Card 5 3/4" square. I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Savoy Decorative Elements. I removed the die and the background throught the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the new Circuit Board Mask.

I added 3D Foam to the backof my background and matted it onto a piece of Black Card. I glued the Savoy die cut in place into the aperture.

I cut the middle die in same die set out of Black Card. I rubbed Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Chic Grey Blue Gilding Wax over the surface. It really looks lovely on the deboss detail on this die cut. It's worth buffing the Gilding Wax with a soft cloth - it removes excess wax, makes the surface smoother and shimmer more.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and cut it out using the smallest die in the Savoy Decorative Elements Die Set.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of thin Off White Satin Ribbon and 2 lengths of thin Black Satin Ribbon and added a Black Vintage Button.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Black Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

My very first post on the Spellbinders Blog was published yesterday. You can see it here. Something very different from me. I get given the collection to work with so quite a challenge! Would be lovely if you could leave a comment on the Spellbinders Blog for me.
