"Much Love" ... in blue

Hi Everybody,

For todays card  I have created a frame from the largest die in the Parisian Motifs set.

This is a lovely set together with the accents set  and is one I suggested as a starter set ...  a few years ago now ...  when I did the video   Starting Your Spellbinders Collection.

But of course things move on and new styles are added as the years go by and so I really should up date that video with a more up to date collection  for  2013.
The card is made in a Hinged Card style  and has lots of layers both inside and out.

The frame has the Quatrefoil Pattern in the centre and is raised on foam pads for depth.  You can get the die from Sunrise Crafts

The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I have stamped and heat embossed it in silver.

The beautiful collection of flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts

The ribbon is from my "Stash" and has been tied into a triple bow  with the Bow Maker for a lovely effect.

 The bow maker is available to buy in My Shop

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Good morning Christina,
    Another stunning creation using what I call the "old basics" which I have lurking in the box. I have been trying to get through some of the old/basics in my posts in the last couple of weeks.
    Off to put up a link on my Blog for the Origami Boxes.
    Have a wonderful day
