You have been so kind

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is simply a card where the dies and the lovely new Pearl Card from Creative Expressions do all the work. Great if you're pushed for time.

I've used the new Steel and Midnight Blue Pearl Card from Creative Expressions.

I embossed the background using the Spellbinders Elite M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I cut the largest and the middle sized dies in the Spellbinders Jewelled Frame Die Set out of Midnight Blue Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Chrysanthemum Stamp Set onto Steel Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it oit using a tag from the Spellbinders Renaissance Tags Two Die Set and cut the corresponding larger die out of Midnight Card.

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

Phill Martin is launching a One Day Special on Hochanda this evening at 8pm with some brand new Christmas goodies. I have ordered some of Phill's new stamps - they should be here later this week.
