Need A Rope ?

Hi Everybody,

Today sees the World launch of the brand new Sapphire die cutting and embossing machine from Spellbinders on Create and Craft.

Kim Hupke is over from US for two days and then on Saturday I will be showing you a little more on what this neat little winner can do

Please join me at 10am and again at 4 pm and I will be doing the shows each day until Wednesday

The embossed panel to this card is from a 3-D folder from Spellbinders called  Need A Rope?

It is one I used quite a lot in the demos for Create and Craft last year and it makes an excellent backdrop to any of your male cards.

But for this one I decided to add in some flowers instead and this one is  Crafty Flower Three

It is designed by Scrappy Cat and made by Spellbinders

The card is simply layered with cream and brown and I allowed the embossing to take centre stage

The sentiment is cut in antique gold and added to a brown strip.

These loopy sentiments are so handy to keep on your work top to add to any of your designs.

This one is Sentiments Four  and the other one in the set is Get Well

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Morning Christina,
    Lovely card, the little machine looks interesting, but I don't think I need another machine, just not got the space.

  21. Hi Christina, the embossing folder does have a masculine look about it but your lovely card proves that with a few choice embellishments, it becomes very feminine. X
