No colouring on my card today, just die cuts, die cuts and more die cuts
with a bit of lace and pearl detail thrown in. I've been working with Christmas colours lately so
thought it was time for a little pastels. I do love pink and cream together.
This is one of those cards that looks so much better in hand.
Since the Spellbinder die I've used is produces a 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inch square,
in order to get a coloured panel behind it that showed a border,
I needed to make a 6 1/4 in square card base.
This presented a problem when my cardstock is only12 x 12 in. so I improvised.
I cut the front piece at 6 1/4 in x 7 1/4 in. and scored the 7 1/4 inch side at 6 1/4.
This left me with a 1 inch tab at the the side where I could attached the back 6 1/4 x 6 1/4 in piece.
I ran the tab thru my Big Shot using SB A2 Scalloped Border, attached a left over strip of pink
cardstock then attached this to the back panel.
Whooo...still with me after all that! Here is what I used.
Spellbinder Lovin Diamonds Die for the base, attached with pop dots
Spellbinder A2 Tranquil Moments die cut twice and then cut in half
Spellbinder A2 Devine Eloquence die cut added to the center with pop dots
Cream lace on each side then a pearl strip added to the center.
Finished with an organza flower and satin bow.
