A2 Curved Borders One

Hi Everybody,

Over the last few days I have added videos on the Borders dies from Spellbinders.

They are in response to several emails asking me how they are used.

And so we have had  ...
Scalloped Borders One
Bracket Borders One

In those videos I  have tried to give some different ideas and I will add more as I make the cards but todays card is something a little different.

In this video I have made a Gate-fold card using the Curved Borders and I hope that you will enjoy it.

The flowers are a mixture of Chrysanthemums, Roses and Cosmos Daisies  from   Wild Orchid Crafts

They have the addition of fine glitter from   Glitter Magic 

I bought a new one  from their stand at the craft show.  It is a pure clear glitter with no color in it at all and the sparkle is lovely on  the petals.

The pearls add something extra to the flowers and they are from Want2Scrap  and if you cut the flourish into smaller pieces then a little goes a long way and is not expensive to add to your cards.

The ribbon that I have wrapped around the card in the video is from Mei Flower and is a soft satin that is easy to tie into a bow.

I bought some new ribbons from them at the craft show and I will  highlight  it for  you on some cards this week.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
