Trendy Collection ...

Hi Everybody,

Another card from the Trendy Collection by Spellbinders and this one is called Floral

To make the card I have cut it once in pink and again in white and then mixed up the panel with pink and white

Each of the flowers has a tiny pearl in the centre and the wide satin ribbon from   Mei Flower   is wrapped around the centre of the card to hide the join.

The button on the bow was once on a cardigan I used to wear ... until I put it in the washing machine and ruined it ... stupid girl !!

But waste not want not and at least I put the buttons off it to good use.

The wording is from Sentiments Three and is simply cut out in pink and stuck to the white panel.  I used the new Leafy Squares and teamed it with Twisted Metal Tags 

Altogether a pretty card and I have lined it too

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  19. Hi Christina, what a neat trick cutting out the same design in different colours. It looks so different in the red card than it does in white, really nice. Good for you using up one of your buttons...I'm guessing that they were the only survivors from the wash lol. I remember my Nan always had a button box and we used to love rooting through it. I think we should start a campaign for the return of the button box, what fun we'd all have looking for just the right one for our cards :) x

  25. Christina,
    Gorgeous card, great technique, quite a contrast. Loving the new dies, can't wait to see the entire collection. Your mishap reminded me of something I did as a child. Loved Angora sweaters, purchased a few, but I didn't bother to read the washing instructions, threw one in the was, low and behold, it was perfect for my Teddy Bear...my Mother has such a laugh, as did my siblings.
