A Fun Card ...

Hi Everybody,

Here is the first of the scheduled posts  and  this card is just for fun  ...  it is not one that I would sell or give away.

It was put together very quickly to see what the dies looked like that I got in the post yesterday morning.

The new dies are the Feathers and I have tucked them into the flowers ... and the birds on a wire both are from  IconUK

The background is silver Mirror card and it has been embossed with Picnic Plaid embossing folder from Crafters Companion.

Now I know that many of you like this folder but that CC wont ship to Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

After some research I have found a company that carries CC products and  I wrote to them and this is the reply I got....  

What I have been doing in previous, is for the customer to drop me an email, we then pick what items they are interested in buying, and we weigh them and put the parcel through Royal mail up to the payment stage and then see what is the price and then email them back with a final price quote. It does take a little time doing it this way but it is the fairest at the moment rather than giving a round figure that everyone has to pay, some ladies only want one folder etc..so the price dispatching that would be less than say the three A4 folders :)
I hope for the time being this is okay.
Kindest regards,

So for now that is the best I can do to help and the company is ....

Pop over to their website and have a browse around then email them and they will help out as much as they can with the folders  that you want.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Morning Christina, What a fab card, so very different from your usual style. Love the feather dies.

  9. Love the look of those feather dies Christina. How kind you are to spend time finding a supplier to ship to Canada, NZ and Oz, not many people would be so generous. Pat x

  10. A fun card but still up to your usual standard.

  11. Good morning Christina,
    A very different style of card from you today and not sure about it only because it is so out of the norm for you in style. I hope you are at least having a great weekend with what ever you have got on.
    Love and crafty hugs

  12. Hi Christina
    Such a lovely card I have never thought of embossing mirri card thank you so much for yet another fantastic idea. For people overseas Joanna Sheen will ship worldwide free if the order is over GB £9 which is not the least bit difficult! Her service is really good too. Hope this will help.

  16. I think this looks lovely, been toying with buying the feather set....I think my mind is made up now...thanks Christina....luv Ursula xx

  17. Hi Christina
    Beautiful card anyone would love to receive
    Hugs x

  18. Hi Christina, I don't see why you couldn't sell this card .... it is rather lovely! love the feathers ..... nice touch! As for Cutting Edge Craft, I have always liked them and the service from them is brilliant, but having read what you have put above, my respect for that company has gone even higher, and makes me want to use them much more for my crafting needs.It is brilliant that they do that, and ........ YOU too are brilliant, because you didn't have to go to those lengths, but you DID, so on behalf of us all, THANKS so much for all the trouble you go to to help people out! Hugs, Karen xx

  19. Cant see why you wouldn't sell or give away this card - its really good and different. Love the way you make the 2 ribbon bows. A tutorial on how to do that would be much appreciated.I have a bow maker but cant get the same effect as you! x

  20. Lovely card. It can always come my way.

  21. Just because this isn't in your usual style, doesn't make it any less beautiful and I agree with Margaret corgi owner... Thanks for the idea of embossing mirror card.:) Great card.

  22. Hi Christina,
    Love the card and the feather dies look really good. I have bought the spellbinders that I have from Icon UK and find that they very reasonable and their service is pretty good too as things seem to be despatched within a day.
    Love and best wishes,
