HI Bloggers.

I thought I'd share a card made using the same die as in yesterday's post but show it used in a different way -

For the background, I used the inner die from the Spellbinders Medallion Three Die D-Lite and cut it several times into a piece of Bright White Card. I matted it onto a slightly larger piece of Sky Blue Card.

I cut the small die from the Spellbinders Octagon Strips and Accents Cut, Fold & Tuck Die Set several times out of a paper from Phill Martin's Blossom 8 x 8 Paper Pad. I folded and tucked, added a 5mm White Pearl and popped them on the centres of the medallions.

I cut the tag from the Spellbinders Octagon Strips and Accents Cut, Fold & Tuck Die Setout of the same  paper from Phill's Blossom Paper Pad. I folded and tucked and added a 5mm White Pearl. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Watering Can Archival. I trimmed it with scissors and added it to the CFT Tag.

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

  15. Hi Julia. Yes, quite different to yesterday's card. SueL x

  16. Nice die that Spellbinders Medallion. The centres are cute made with Phil M's papers. Justrite sentiment - I have some and must check if they include 'congrats' which I think works particularly well for young people. Thanks.
