Greetings friends! I wanted to slip in today with a card for my stash that I wanted to share. The paper is so lovely and I cringe that I covered it up as much as I did but I had a series of dies I really wanted to use. I started out using Spellbinders Majestic Labels Twenty Five with Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares inside (Spellbinders Classic Squares SM) helped me make it a frame too). Tucked in the upper and lower corners of the square I filled in with Spellbinders Corner Flourish. I couldn’t resist the little birdie on the banner so I placed Spellbinders Bird Banner on the inside which is stamped with a Wordsworth sentiment. Lastly the flowers on my bow are created with Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.
My card today users older dies except for one, so I’m happy to share the how-to cause you can make it now. By the way, the I added the gold birdie by just cutting the die an additional time and snipping it off from the banner. With Corner Flourish, I positioned each flourish underneath my frame and snipped off the excess – I love that inside look!
You Can Make This Card Too: Start out with a hinged card base sized 5-1/2″ x 7-1/2″. Here are the rest of the layers from the bottom up. Foam tape to lift gold mat layer cut to 5-1/4″ x 7-1/4″, design paper layer cut to 5-1/8″ x 7-1/8″, double layer of foam tape (I use Scotch 3M Foam tape that is 1/16″ thick) to lift frame cut using Majestic Labels Twenty Five, quadruple layer of foam tape to lift Fleur de Lis Square embellished with two Corner Flourishes. Quadruple layer of foam tape to lift Bird Banner placed in center of square. Frame embellished by loopy bow and embellished with flowers made from Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms (1 of each flower). Embellish with pearls.

I have been so busy at home, and sadly my craft room is in shambles. I hate that because I work best with a tidy area. I feel a spring cleaning coming on – heaven only knows what I’ll find. I hope all is well in your sweet world!
