Coffee and Cream

Hi Everybody

Todays card is using some really pretty card in cream from  PMD  and then using inks to colour the rest as a highlight to bring out the features in the lace.

The card is a 5x7 top folded card as this is my favorite way to make any cards that I do.

Having the fold at the top helps the card to stand better especially if you add as many embellishments to it as I do

So I have mixed old dies with new ones here and I really love the new Graceful Floral Lace from Becca Feeken.

For this card I have used Distress Ink Ground Espresso and inked through the die before removing the card and it gives you this lovely pattern on your lace.

It is so pretty and a wonderful addition to any feminine cards.

The other is the Botanical Heart Pair  and this I have cut three times and glued them together.

This is another favorite trick of mine as it gives strength and depth to the die cut and makes it stand out on the card. Try it ... it works wonders

The card has been wrapped in ribbon and the layered with a pearl strip and then the bow added to the top.

The Happy Birthday Sentiment has also been cut several times and glued together for effect, and is also a new die from Spellbinders.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
