Spellbinders One Day Special continues today

Hi Bloggers.

The Spellbinders Wedding Collection One Day Special Shows continue today at 9am, 12noon, 4pm and 7pm. I hope you can join me.

My son, Nathan, is 20 today. I won't see him till much later this evening. I don't think he's all that bothered about that - lol!

Here's today's card -

I made a card blank out of Coconut White Card by using the largest die in the Spellbinders Intertwined Spirals Die Set - I folded an A4 sheet in half and placed the die with some of the outside edge outside the fold and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine. You may get a few marks on the back of the card from your plates but that's not a problem as you can cover that up.

I cut the outside die again out of Coconut White Card. I cut it again with the next sized die out of Black Gloss Card.

I cut the round die from the set out of Coconut White Card.

I made a couple of shoes out of Black Gloss Card - they look like patent shoes, don't they? I used the Spellbinders Ladies Shoe and added a Craft Consortium White Resin Rose.

I also used the Spellbinders Gents Shoe - you need to lace it up BEFORE you glue the pieces together. I used some Off White Satin Ribbon for the lace.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Bold Flourish Wedding Stationery Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Swallowtail Tags. I gave it a little shape and added it to my card as shown securing the tips with CS Glue and with a little 3D Foam under the centre.

I glued my card front to the back of my card blank so that any marks from my plates were hidden and the real back of my card looked nice and clean.

10% discount on products I have in stock from today's ODS  continues on my website here. Offer is valid till midnight tonight. A couple of the dies have sold out and I can't get anymore at the moment, sorry. I've ordered the Arched Pennants and they're due in any day now.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Take care Kitty. so Happy Birthday Nathan.

  29. Hi Julia, Happy 20th Birthday, Nathan, enjoy your special day.
    I've just finished watching you on my laptop, I was excited watching you do the envelope and liner, ideal for making batches of notelets too (well done, Yana). I love this card,the wedding shoes are really special, and you have made these definitely 'patent' fabulous.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  31. Hello Julia,
    I'm watching the Shows on Catch Up! I haven't caught up though! Lovely dies, lovely card and I love the CE shiny back card! Xx

  32. Good afternoon Julia,
    now although black is not my colour of choice i can see why you went for it in this card as you have made lovely patent shoes with it. A very stylish card in the black and white and that backyground die that you have used to make a shaped card from is just stunning, thank you.
    I hope that your big boy has had a lovely birthday today and of course he will have missed you mum, even if it was just to get taken out for lunch on you, lol.
    Love and crafty hugs

  33. Hi Julia,
    Lovely card with a difference. Loving the shows but having to watch on Hochanda as I normally watch on freeview,which means I can't record them for future reference. Will be glad when it's back on in May.
