Hello sweet friends! I have a card to share today but first I wanted to tell you how excited I am to be teaching at One Crazy Stamper in Toronto on May 4th, 2017. How cool is that? I’m rarely on the road teaching, but I feel so blessed to be getting out. We’ll be creating an elegant yearly journal gift set with my new Filigree Booklet/Mini Card Die and just peek at the video that was made using the die —> HERE. This is one of my personal favorites and I’ve designed additional inserts and accessories to go along with this die – coming later this year. At any rate, I hope so much to meet some of my Canadian friends and northern US friends are welcome to drive in too. For more info pop over to the OCS website and you can see the project. :-) Now on to my card for today…
My project today is one that created to display in the UK. Typically their cards are much larger than ours but I used it as an excuse to make a card I would use for a ”grand” occasion – like an big anniversary or something where you really want the card to stand out over the other cards you send. More importantly, the size of this card matches the scale of this grand border I used – Spellbinders Graceful Floral Lace. At 8.5″x 8.5″ I’ve decided it will either reach its destination in a regular bubble wrap envelope or I’ll make a special envelope with my Envelope Punch Board. This is a two color, two die card made using Spellbinders Graceful Frame Maker and the Spellbinders Graceful Floral Lace. I’ll give you a hint the cutting of the floral frame was done the same way I did in constructing a scrapbook page frame in this technique video at the 5 minute mark. With this technique I used the entire length and width of the die cut. Today I opted for a sweet sentiment from Quietfire Design – Follow Your Dreams.
