Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing a sneak peek from the One Day Special starting on Hochanda tomorrow night at 8pm. The show features some old favourite Spellbinders dies at some great prices. Please don't miss out on some bargains!

Here's today's sneak peek -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Creative Expressions Butterfly Dreams Embossing Folder.

I cut the pair of corner dies from the Spellbinders Octagon Strips and Accents Cut, Fold & Tuck Die Set out of one of the papers from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad - I used the Chic Grey Blue shade. I folded and tucked and glued the corners in place.

I cut dies #2 and #3 (where #1 is smallest) from the Spellbinders Floral Burst Cut, Fold & Tuck out of the same patterned paper. I folded and tucked, stacked them up and added a Craft Consortium Vintage Pearl Charm.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm and 8mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

Free card with all website orders (ask for one in the comments box at checkout).
Deal of the Day today (21st August) - Couture Creations Happy Birthday Die only £2.99!

  31. Hi Julia,
    Beautiful card. Aren't these dies marvellous, I remember trying to cut lace designs with a craft knife, and the knife always slipped just as I was nearing the end - didn't do my health and temper any good at all - life's too short.
