It's not about the end result

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I cut both the dies in the Spellbinders Medallion Three Die Set out of Custard Card several times. I glued them to a piece of Bright White Card and trimmed away the excess.

I cut a tiny motif from the Spellbinders Venetian Motifs Die Set out of Bright White Card - enough times to go in the centres of the Medallion Three die cuts. I glued them in place and trimmed away the excess. I left the glue to completely dry and then ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Wire Barbs Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the sentiment from the Wendy Vecchi Studio 490 Wildflower Art Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Watering Can Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Astoria Labels.

I cut a corner die from the Spellbinders Venetian Accents Die Set out of Custard Card twice. I added them to 2 corners of the sentiment die cut. I used the waste from the Bright White die cuts in the centres of the Medallion Three die cuts in my background to make little flowers and added them to the corner die cuts as shown.

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.

  3. Hi Julia and crafters all,
    How pretty this card looks, I bet it was fiddly cutting and putting the centres in the medallions. The custard and white card blend so well and love the sentiment.
    Love and crafty hugs to all,
