Especially For You ...

Hi Everybody,

This pretty card is created from the Sapphire Collection of dies by  Spellbinders  and I used the Squares from Basic Set A to make the frames

I simply added the two largest squares together to form the frames and then topped them onto some lovely rose patterned paper.

Each of the frames was edged with pearls from Want2Scrap  and I had to cut down foam pads into thin strips to sit behind each edge to give it some height.

They have been layered diamond pattern onto the card and the bottom part wrapped with ribbon and pearls

Very simple but very effective and with a change of colour and sentiment it could be for any occasion

And although these are Sapphire dies they will go through any die cutting machine that you have.

The  Sapphire Machine  and the dies is available to buy from Create and Craft

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  22. This is a lovely fresh looking card especially in the pink. Looks simple but guess for me would take some time to get the squares just right. Pearls finish it off beautifully. X

  25. WOW!! I think this may be one of my favorites. It's one of those "Duh!..why didn't I think of that?" cards. Absolutely gorgeous. And I have to agree with one of the other comments (from Betty McAlister)..it looks simple, but I know it would take me quite awhile to get everything aligned correctly. lol Anyway, great job, Christina!
