Friday Freebie 052

Hi Everybody,

One whole year of Friday Freebies and another one soon to start.

This card has used a mixture of dies and they are  all layered up with foam tape.

The white layer is embossed with a basket weave pattern and the layered onto the blue

I have wrapped the layers with ribbon before adding to the base card

The next layer is in blue and I have used 5x7 Reflective Moments

The smaller white layer is Decorative Labels Eight
which has also been embossed

Then over the top I have used Lattice Motifs but this is a die you will have to search for as it is no longer on the Spellbinders website.

I do not deliberately choose dies that are no longer available it's just that I have these dies in my crafting "Stash" and I still like them and use them.  I am so sorry if you cannot find them ... but that is progress I suppose

If you would like to have this card on its way to your house then join the group of followers and leave me a comment.  A name will be chosen at random and the winner announced in tomorrows  blog post.  Please come back to check if you are the winner.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Christina, this is a very pretty card. Gingham brings back memories of my childhood. The nice thing about the different dies is showing the ability to" look outside the box" and create ways to mix and match with what may be in our stash. The embossing adds interest , also. Have a great day as I close mine. ~blessings

  20. Good morning Christina, a beautiful blue card, I am amazed at your ability to layer dies that go so well together. I am curious how?, do you have all your dies out on display, or just memory? I would love to be the owner of this beautiful card. Have a great weekend X Ros

  33. Good morning Christina,
    this is a stunning card this morning in the blue and white with the various layers going on each saying something that we bit different than the layer before. I hope that in your progression over the last year that you have enjoyed making all your friday giveaways as much as we have enjoyed seeing each of them and making a space just in case they should happen to come our way. Thank you for a year of inspiration flower,
    love and crafty hugs

  43. Wow, doesn't seem possible it has been a whole year since you have been doing the Friday Freebies. Gorgeous card today. Just love all the layers that you use. Don't mind at all that you use some of the older dies that you have as most of us probably have some of them and are looking for new ideas on how to use them. Would love to win this beautiful card. Have a great weekend.

  52. Another beauty Christina, it is a shame about the dies but I am sure that the idea can be adapted to other similar type of die or even give the opportunity to play with what we have and see what we come up with, which, to my mind, is the idea anyway! Your cards are always so inspirational! Thanks for a year of wonderful "Friday Freebies" !
    Hugs
