Good Morning and welcome to my Blog this sunny day. The sky is rather heavy with dark clouds looming but Hey! Ho! getting up early has its benefits..........at least I have seen the sun. I am sure the black clouds will go and we will have a bright, sunny day.
I have a very, simple card today, I was playing yesterday, in my "Scrap Box" I found this Die Cut shape I had popped in.
Base Card 6 x 6 from Joanna Sheen
Pink card stock from my stash, embossed with Spellbinder M-Bossibility Folder Paisley
Die Cut is a Lifestyle Die from Crafter`s Companion
Ribbon from my box
Pearls from Wild Orchid Craft`s
Greeting done on the computer
This Die is a very intricate die, I have found using Greaseproof Paper between the die and my card a blessing for getting it out. I also rub the cutting side of the Die with a Tumble Drier sheet. It can be a pain sometimes but the result is a stunning piece to work with. I find myself cutting quite a few at once and keeping them, just to save frustration.
I wanted to keep the card flat enough to go in an envelope so NO added embellishments.
Found the font I have used for the greeting, thought it very sweet it has a little heart in the and sign. Must look it up later and add the name of it to my next blog.
That`s it for today
Thank you for visiting it is much appreciated
