Create a Card - Extravagance

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is  called   Extravagance    and is  from Crafters Companion Create a Card dies

I have used Spellbinders Lattice with this and it just shows how well all dies from whichever company will all play nicely on the same card.
I have layered this in cream and white and then added it to a larger panel so that the finished card is 7 1/2 inches square.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts  and into the corsage I have added a lovely pearl and Diamante hatpin

The flowers have been sparkled for added glamour

The satin ribbon has a pearl and diamante centre and the pearl flourishes are from Want2Scrap.

It is  a card that would be lovely  for a wedding  with the  appropriate verse and this little verse is from   Clarity Stamps  and it comes ready mounted on a clear acrylic handle.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  9. Good morning/afternoon Christina,
    Another beautiful card and so different from your smaller cards that you enjoy creating. I have to agree with the thought of a wedding card with the right words as it is simply beautiful and i think that anyone bride or friend or acquaintance would fall in love with it as soon as seeing it.
    Love and crafty hugs

  12. I would never have thought to put cream and white together but it looks fabulous

  13. Christina,
    Another gorgeous card...I am loving the new dies...temptation, temptation. I love the verse. Missing you, but hoping you are having a great time.

  14. Such a really beautiful card Christina that would do for lots of different occasions it really is a work of art. I do hope they bring some similar dies out that are rectangles, do I hear you saying some folks are fussy! I just find I can use a rectangle a lot more than a square.
    Do hope the holiday is going well for you both.
