Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

A simple card where the dies do all the work.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Flourishing Fleur Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I cut the largest die from the Spellbinders 6 x 6 Matting Basics A Die Set and added the Flourishing Fleur die cut to it.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Wedding Cake Singles Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using 6 x 6 Matting Basics B and cut a mat using 6 x 6 Matting Basics A.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Wedding Cake, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Swallowtail Tags. I gave it some shape and added it to my card as shown, securing it with a few 3d Foam Pads in the centre and CS Glue at the ends.
I assembled the card as shown adding some Craft Consortium Self Adhesive Rhinestones and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Still waiting for Leonie's stamp range to arrive. Hopefully, they'll be here soon after the Bank Holiday. I should have a couple of the Spellbinders Favourably Simple Gift Boxes delivered on Wednesday providing my delivery man can get through some road closures that are going on locally for a few days. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully, more stock will be available for me to order in a week or so. If you need some Hook & Loop Discs to close your gift bags, I've put together some packs of 10 of each. You can find them here.

Thanks for stopping by.
