Hi there sweet friends — how about a card that will celebrate any special occasion? I had a craving to do a filigree card so I started with a card base made from Spellbinders® Enchanted Labels Twenty Eight – one of my favorites. For my card base I was able to cut two layers at once – there are not too many chads so it was relatively easy to get clean cuts. If your die cut machine balks with two layers, you can try the technique I show in this —–> video, for a polished look. On top of my base I layered Spellbinders® Gold Labels Four followed by Spellbinders® Labels Thirty which is cut from some sweet rose paper at ByDigital called Romantic Time. (My rose design paper layer is backed up by a cream layer of Labels Thirty simply cut in half horizontally.) The top element is cut using Labels Thirty as well, then trimmed down to the sides of the stamped frame from JustRite Papercrafts set – Birthday Vintage Labels Four.
I felt like I needed something to create some texture within the design so the two half round circles are a little piece of serendipity – I used Spellbinders® Die D-Lites Window Two.

I’ve been savoring the amazing weather that has been coming my way. A new glider on my porch has become my favorite hangout with morning coffee and I’ve been drinking in the morning air with a thirst that surprises even me. Two new plants found their way into my new spot even though I can in no way claim a green thumb. These are blissful, blessed days and as much as I savor my little oasis, I equally savor the time spent here with you. Thank you and bless you!! P.S. I’m trying to answer email these days . . . perhaps my computer needs to come out to my new spot, what do you think?
