Hiya sweeties! What a week of blessings, it’s just the little things. Another new card for you – remember I mentioned that I got into my zen earlier this week by cutting up a whole bunch of new dies and laying out the possibilities. I love that kind of focus, when I have a lot on my mind it totally makes me relax. At any rate this is one of ‘those’ cards and it’s the giveaway today :-) I created a card base for this odd sized card (4-1/4″ x 6-3/4″) by using the Hinge method I’ve described before using Spellbinders Arched Elegance – the inlay piece at the top and the bottom of the piece cut for the front and the piece cut for the back of the card. On top of that I layered Spellbinders Victorian Bow and I finished off with Spellbinders Baby Buntings and a stamped sentiment from a Quietfire Design set called Always Be My Friend.
