Wot, no Christmas?....................



Good morning everybody. Hope you are well and enjoying the long awaited heatwave........long may it last!!!
Told you the last card was my one and only Christmas card and even that was from last year LOL.!!! I will try and come up with some more 
Well, after removing the secret cameras that had been installed by Heather in my craft room, I had a play with this card (I have moved the cameras to my bathroom so that will teach her a lesson or make her scream LOL !!!) 
I apologise if the picture quality is not great but I took them on my phone as my camera battery went to sleep as I switched it on.

I started with an A4 piece of PMD Raspberry Pink card. I left the length at 29.8cm but cut the height to the same as the largest of the Spellbinders Elegant Labels Four dies.
I then scored at 7.5cm in from each end.
Using the largest Elegant Labels Four, I just cut the flap at either end by overhanging the rest over the edge of the cutting plate (if that makes sense....the next picture may assist my waffle).
I then cut 3 of the middle die from this set out of PMD cream linen card and inked through the die with a fuchsia pink ink. I didn't ink onto the centre of the die cut, just through the holes.
I then cut two of these to fit the front of the card and stamped each with the rose stamp* in the fuchsia ink. They were then stuck onto the front of the card.


On the 3rd die cut, I stamped it with the sentiment in fuchsia again and stuck it inside the card.
I then used fuchsia pink organza ribbon, threaded through the gaps to tie in a bow. In the flesh, the ribbon colour is pretty much the same shade as the card but has come out different on the pictures.

A different take on a filigree card so I hope you like it.



More F1 tomorrow and tennis................remember to cheer on our boys, English and Scottish!
May have another trip to the bookies.

Its late now (I'm scheduling) so time for beddybyes. 
Hope you have the Sun in the sky and in your hearts and thank you, as always, for popping by.

    I knew this was yours as soon as it came up on the screen your soft muted colours, synonymous with yourself have made you a worldwide phenomena in the field of card making!

    Absolutely beautiful I never think to use the dies as an edge to a card but who knows so many things to try so little time!!

    I don't know your carol but isn't it a bit early for a Pina Colada (For those who do not know what I am talking about go to my blog!)Now Pimm's well now you're talking girl! LOL! I met someone the other day who seriously thought Pimm's was non-alcoholic she was squiffy at the time which made it even more funny!LOL!

  4. Ang just love the way you have done your card today, and the colour is gorgeous too. To make you jealous my son and his family are in Germany and are at the F1, can't see Lauren who is three enjoying it but daddy and mummy will, then again daddy will be in his element the rest of the week to as they are off to the Playmobil fun land and factory. ( he says it's for the girls ) oh I don't think so. Hope no one disturbs your afternoon of viewing.

  7. Absolutely stunning card, great use of the Dies .... and what about the "subtle" colour. Joking apart I really like the colour.

    Had a wee snigger at Heathers comment. I remember my darling sweet MIL who I loved to bits won a bottle of Peach Snapps in a raffle. She really thought it was non alcoholic and was having it "straight" with her breakfast drinking it like Fresh Orange. Then wondering why she was falling asleep half way though the morning!!!!!!
