Hello friends! I hope today finds you safe, well and happy. So much happens in a week and I know with the crazy weather of late, many of you may be hunkering down for the Labor Day Weekend. Today is Day of Giving Friday and today I’m sharing one of my favorite sentiments – it was one that I included in one of my past kits and this new one was beautifully penned by Suzanne Cannon with Quietfire Design. What a lovely statement about the power that memory has to evoke something so very lovely . . . a flower, a song, the thought of a loved one. That’s within our power; queue up those lovely memories!
My card today is simple, two dies; I’m using a die I designed called Spellbinders Intertwined Spirals and within the lower part of the aperature I filled in with a filigree corner die. Any large corner die should work
The card base is 7″ x 7″ (custom envelope make with the Envelope Punch Board). Easily downsizes to 6″ x 6″.
On top of my card base I added a panel 6-5/8″ x 6-5/8″ followed by a panel 6″ x 6″.
Next I added my diecut panel with Spellbinders Intertwined Spirals, cut as an inlay, including the circle and trimmed it down to 5-3/4″ x 5-3/4″ On the lower part of the circle I added Amazing Paper Grace Filigree Corners die (retired) to fill in.
I finished up with a triple bow, pearl button and a spray of mulberry roses.
