Hi there blog friends!! I have to admit that after I got done with this card I was pleased — it’s different! It almost looks like filigree to me. I’m using some of this months new releases with JustRite Stamps and several Spellbinders templates to get the effect; I used JustRite Stampers Faith and Forever Friends sets.
Isn’t this layer-a-licious? I used Spellbinders Grand Squares to cut out all the levels up to Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares. I’m soooo in love with the perfect square and the embossed (beveled) edges – they finish a card so nicely. After setting the Fleur de Lis Squares in place I cut four of the large symmetrical posts from Spellbinders Elegant Posts then cut arrow end off and trimmed the big end. On top of that I stacked Spellbinders Classic Squares LG and Spellbinders Classic Squares SM and finished by cutting my sentiment out with Spellbinders Classic Circles LG.
Oh, I found Recollections Pearls in chocolate!! I know you can color them but I love them when they are already the color I need. I just didn’t have the heart to put ribbon on this card – it’s soooo busy and I didn’t want to disturb the symmetry.
