Soft Cream and Coffee ...

Hi Everybody,

I love this card and it is so much prettier in real life.  The cream card is Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion

I have teamed it with white for a really elegant look.

The wide satin ribbon has been tied in a large double bow and I have added the flowers to cover the knot.

The flowers are a beautiful mixture of coffee and cream Roses and I have sparkled them up with Glamour Dust.
The tiny pearls on the cross sections and those around the edge are from Want2Scrap.

It is a card that could be for any occasion and would make a wonderful  Wedding card.

The frame is created from the Rectangles in the same way as in the video.

The die may be difference but the method is much the same and makes a very pretty way to add those wonderful panels.

The one in the video is the   Quatrefoil Pattern   from Sunrise Crafts  and I love that die.

The list below are the dies I have used for todays card and they all mix and match well together.  In fact all the dies old or new styles will go with each other you just have to try them and see what you like.

But shop around for the best price you can get ... and keep your eyes peeled as new dies are coming onto the market all the time from lots of  different companies

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
