Friday Freebie 042

Hi Everybody,

This red card is quite a large square and is created from the Crafters Companion  Create a Card range and there are several patterns for you to choose from

This one has the addition of red pearl flourishes from Want2Scrap to  highlight the sentiment

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and they are a mixture of Roses, Chrysanthemums, Poppy and Cherry Blossom

Into that mix I have added in the  spray of red holly berries and green leaves from   AnnaMarie Designs

If you would like to win this card then all you need to do is leave me a comment at the bottom of the post.

A name will be chosen in the morning and added to a blog post ... so if you enter then don't forget to come back and check to see if you are the winner

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  17. Hi Christine
    Another stunning card today. The card front and the ribbon are lovely. How did this die cut out. I've heard that they are quite difficult to use?. I'm not to sure if you read these comments to supply an answer. But I do like the look of these dies, but have been put off by the comments people have made about them. I would love to win one of your creations, and will keep everything crossed.

    1. Yes I do read the comments ... every one of them and thank you for leaving them. I have several of these Create a Card dies from Crafters Companion and I have cut them with out any trouble at all. If it hasn't cut in areas then rotate the die and try again. They do make very pretty cards though so well worth the effort xx

  32. LOVE these dies from Crafter's Companion! They are a little large but they are all really beautiful!
    LOVE this beautiful card and the flowers are so very pretty too! I really love the ribbon. Great colors and the sentiment is so true!! It isn't often in life that you find a "forever" friend but once you do the world is so much brighter! I have very few actual friends and am blessed to have two forever friends that we can go without talking for months and then start a conversation right where we left off. It is such a special feeling to have a friend like that!
    Would love to add this card to my wall of honor! Thanks for the chance to and have a great weekend!
