A2 Filigree Delight

Hi Everybody,

For this card I thought I would stay away from flowers and ribbons and keep it more suited to a male theme.  I have filmed the making of it.

But I had to add in some pearls otherwise it would have been too plain.

For the card to the right I have added in the Quatrefoil Pattern in the oval space and I bought mine from  Sunrise Crafts

The addition of some flowers would change the look of the card totally

This is just a very simple idea for the Filigree Delight

But there is so much more you can do with it .. and indeed all the A2 dies that I have been showing you over the last few days.

On both of these cards I have placed some of the pearls from Want2Scrap

The sentiments for each are from the Sentimentals Range from   Crafters Companion

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  5. Loved the video Christina, you always make it look so easy. super idea for male cards.

  6. Lovely card Christina-always good for a change to make a man's card .I do not find them the easiest of cards to make x

  7. Hi Christine,
    Stunning cards and great video. As you said the first one would be great gor a male card....we're always stuck for male ideas....but oh I do love the pastels. The blue and whit is just so beautiful.

    Love Sheila xx

  8. Lovin the different styles and sizes, like everyone else I always struggle with cards for men, they aren't the easiest. Just off to watch the video.

  9. Thanks for sharing. I like your tips and tricks, and the way you create your cards.
    Would you be kind enough to tell where you bought the Talkum Powder in the little container?
    I find it hard to use the plastik bottles, because it always end up, all over my desk :-)

  10. Hi Christina: Why cant I ever find the sentiments you use on your cards at the site you point us to which is Crafters Companion. Is there a secret door you go through in order to find them...LOL. Can you be a little more specific on where to look.

    1. Click the link to Crafters Companion and scroll down the page to the Sentimentals and click View Range ... and there you will find a whole group of
      the stamps with all different sentiments on them ... then make your choice xx

    2. Thanks Christina I finally found them. They were not listed before on the US site so I couldnt find them. I couldnt find the Butterfly embossing folder before either until I searched by the number you put up on that folder, otherwise the website didnt show it, now they are showing it. So dont know if they were behind in their listings or what. Thank you again.

  11. Hi Christina,
    Lovely cards, have those dies, can't wait to try them out. Thank you for the video, and the inspiration.

  12. Both cards are absolutely gorgeous, Christina!! I have added this die to my must-have list!! As always, thanks for the inspiration!! Have a great day :)
