Hi friends, I’m peeking in from my catch-up crafting weekend. It’s not a pretty picture around my house, beds are unmade, dishes are in the sink and nothing got done after church. One of the cards on my list is a card for my bestie – I haven’t seen her in over a year and last week we carved out time for a girls lunch. I think there was a glow over our table because we tied that table up for three hours catching up and I think we were talking so fast that no one would have dared interrupt us. So I’m thinking about sending this card but there are a couple more on the drawing board.
I decided to make my own background using border dies. I cut four of Spellbinders A2 Curved Borders Two and simply intertwined sets of two of them by placing the largest humps in opposite directions and letting them fall naturally. I love the look an it’s a nice base for my card. After that cut Spellbinders Fleur de Elegance and cut it in half. Inside I placed a small oval from Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and the lady silhouette shape from Spellbinders Silhouette. To finish up a small bow and scrunched flowers using Spellbinders Cinch and Go Flowers (lol, I designed them and they are my favorite flower these days – you can see the tutorial HERE). I hung on a small tag from Spellbinders Flourished Frame.
