Hello sweet friends! Spring has returned right? Maybe that’s why I can’t concentrate, it’s too, too lovely outside. I hope today finds you well! Today you get two card from me. I’m sharing this card for Day of Giving Friday here – read down below if you are new to Day of Giving Friday. AND, over on the Spellbinders Blog, I’m showing you step by step how to craft a special card full of hugs—–> Click HERE!! So much going on – I hope you’ll pop over there and give me your thoughts. Is it a card you could see yourself making? If you would, then let me know!
So on to my card for today. Every once in a while I love a tall card (this one is 8.5″ tall by 4″ wide) – they are so different and really it is so easy to fill up the space, because of the narrowness. Today I’m highlighting one of my new borders Graceful Floral Lace. It takes up a lot of real estate on the card and that’s exactly what I wanted. I simply cut two pieces, backed them with silver foil and adhered the pairing to the top and to the bottom I stamped my sentiment from Quietfire Design onto vellum paper with Versafine Ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder. The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders Classic Ovals SM and framed with Spellbinders Floral Oval. The tiny filigree piece on the bottom is Spellbinders Corners and Accents One.
