Back to Spellbinders ...

Hi Everybody,

Here's another one to go in my  Christmas store and I am getting quite a selection ready to send now .... how sad is that when it's only August.

I am not usually this early with cards for Christmas but I have a lot of plates juggling at present and so I need to be organised.

To the card ..... This one is made using a lovely antique gold and white  card.

The base is white with another layer on top that has been embossed with the Dainty Dots A4 folder from Spellbinders.

The gold layer has been hand cut in the FauxNesties style and then the white layer is suing one of the new 8 x 8 folders from Crafters Companion

This folder is called Seasonal Music  and I have rubbed gold embossing paste over the surface to enhance the notes.

(And just as a side line for those who asked me about the Ebosser .... it is now back in stock with Crafters Companion)

The Poinsettias are from the Tattered Lace   and they have been cut from the white and the gold and layered up alternatively.... with a pearl centre.

The gold organza ribbon finishes the card and the inside is lined with gold and white layers.

 I would like to stress that the pictures at the bottom of the post are for you to see which Spellbinders have been used ... it is up to you to source them in your own country at the price you want to pay.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
