Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Napa Valley

Hi Everybody,

I love all the new dies by Sue Wilson but this one is Napa Valley and I fell for this as soon as I saw it.

It is just soooooo .... well simply beautiful and it cuts like a dream.

Here I have layered it with Spellbinders Matting Basics A and B as a  Hinged Card and if you click the link it will take you to the tutorial on how to make this style for yourself

I cut a patterned panel from the California background and layered it over silver

But before I added it to the card I threaded silver ribbon through white lace and added it at the bottom

The largest shaped layer is from the Decorative Frames Set B from the California Collection and then Napa Valley on the top  Layered up with foam tape between them all for dimension.

The bow is created on a smaller scale as I did the Chocolate Box Bow   but it looks just a good.  The knot is covered with a sparkler from Wild Orchid crafts

All the dies featured are available from JGD Crafts

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
