Happy and cheerful Friday blog friends! It’s rainy here but I don’t have to go out so I put on a fluffy pair of socks and brewed up a huge carafe of French Vanilla Coffee and plan to play catch up on many of the things that escaped my grasp over the last month or so. Yes, catch up – I’m behind on picking winners for Day of Giving Friday and getting my cards sent out, but I plan to be on top of that by tomorrow ! Speaking of Day of Giving Friday todays card is up for grabs to one of my readers – simple leave a comment to get in the running.
For this card I used classic dies with a bit of layering to build up to the top layer. The card base is 6″ tall and 5-1/2″ wide. The main focal panel features Spellbinders 5 x 7 Elegant Labels Four but you will notice that it doesn’t seem to stand as tall as 5 x 7. I cut the die two thirds of the way down and shrunk it down to fit on my card. The big bow hides this doctoring. Whittling away a die is a favorite technique of mine to get a bigger use! The focal panel is then layered with Spellbinders Majestic Circles and topped with a label die that is no longer available but very similar to Spellbinders Labels Thirty Three. To finish the card I added a small sentiment with the use of a small tag from Spellbinders Back to Basics Tags
