"YOU" card .....

Hi Everybody,

One of the dies that I use a lot from Spellbinders is the word YOU

This simple die can be teamed up with so many stamps to say just about anything that you like

I like to cut the word from Craft foam and then add it to the word cut again in card that matches my design.

It really makes a statement piece on your creations and is very tactile for the recipient.

Here I have just used a matt black card and black craft foam

The background to my card is created with the  Criss Cross  pattern

I have added in raised panels at the top and bottom using the Curved Borders One 

My beautiful flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and are a mixture of Gysophillia, Roses, Camellia, small buds and some Cherry blossoms

I have also added in some long curly stems to the display and used both blue and white flowers

The steel Gray pearls are from Want2Scrap  and the butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch called Monarch

The stamp set I have used is  Simply Said - You   from Avery Elle and there are lots of sentiments on the sheet making it a very useful addition to my "Stash"

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
