Good Sunday Morning to you! Today’s card for 30 Days of Giving is my favorite cream and gold. Another new card and I must say it’s not often that what I think of in a card is what I end up with. I’m one of those who has an idea to get started but actually create as I go along. (I’m embarrassed to say how long it takes me sometimes.) Today I envisioned the layers, put it together quickly and was done. Here’s how it goes – card base, layer of gold, my favorite embossing folder – Spellbinders Shady Allure wrapped with lace and ribbon followed by Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance which I have stamped with a new sweet and pretty sentiment from Quietfire Design called Friendship Isn’t a Big Thing – and topped off with Spellbinders Majestic Oval. These elements are literally stacked upon each other to make a card. Of course as always I add a bow and pearls when I’m finished. So many times I see a comment saying, I wish I could do that. Well, you know what, you can!
