Warm Greetings to everyone, and a special welcome to my newest followers.
Before sharing my card, I'd like to share a VERY HAPPY experience with an outstanding manufacturer. Spellbinders Grand Calibur has been my favored die cutting machine from the very beginning, when they first came out. My dear machine broke last week.
There is a happy ending, though.
Today's card shares feature the birds on K and Company's pretty designer papers by Brenda Walton.
Do you inadvertently save items for a special project, and then forget about them, so that they end up being in a stash of hoarded supplies?
This week I made 3 cards using the 3 sheets with birds in the bottom right corner. Each card is similar.
The card above is made with vellum edging from Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Squares, distressed and pieced together with stitching on the card. White flowers by Irene's Garden helped this card go together more quickly. One sentiment is popped up; the other is stamped direct to DP.
My second card is flat for regular mailing and uses 2 Spellbinders dies for the sentiments, two from Heartfelt creations. (the decorative corner is with vellum under all the tiny flowers. The flowers are embellished with Prills. And Memory Box's lovely Fuchsia Sprig die cut.
Interior sentiment is the same on each card, however, the edging is different on each card:
Crafty Bloggers Network has a fabulous Tic Tac Toe Challenge going on.
The top card satisfies the row of "Flowers-Stamps-Stitching".
The second card has "vellum doily, stamps, sentiment".
The third card below has "Gems, 2 Vellum Doilies, punch/die cuts".
Over at Delightful Sketches, they, too are featuring a Bingo Card:
My first card features: Stitching, Glitter (right side beneath border bunch) and Flowers.
The second card features: Flowers, Punches/Die Cuts, Pattern Paper
The two Velvet glitters are on the inside panel; a strip each of Luau Green and Orchid Rose. They can just be seen through the Laurel Leaf border punch, but look fabulous on the inside. The Orchid Rose Velvet Glitter was also used between the jeweled flourishes for added bling.
Memory Box Tender Leaves Die Cuts were used to embellish the flowers on this card.
