Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

September 23, 2014

Gold and White

Hi Everybody,

I had a really busy day yesterday preparing samples for the new Victorian Collection  from Spellbinders.

It is featured in the Pick Of The Week with Create and Craft TV  -- 26th Sep - 3rd Oct and so no post yesterday

But today I have this card  which certainly shines in Bright gold and white and would make a lovely wedding card.

It is created using the  Labels Thirty Nine  from Spellbinders and is another of the new Classic Collection.

The  plain Labels are excellent for creating the base to your cards or for matting and layering and they all work so well together.

The gold part to this card is using the Decorative Accents  and I have matted them with the plain ones cut in white.

I have also added into the mix the Decorative Elements  to add more of the filigree pattern to the layers.

And apart from the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts  there is no other adornment

But those ingredients are more than enough to make this a really pretty card.

All the colored words are links and by clicking them it will take you to another page and will show you what the dies look like and they are a wonderful addition to your crafting "Stash"

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. Morning Christina,
    Not sure about this one, gold looks a bit over the top for my taste, maybe a lot softer in real like.

  9. Good morning Christina,
    I do love the new dies that you are using from spellbinders as they make such beautiful cards. Todays offering could be a Golden Wedding card just changing the words as it looks so opulent and gorgeous. I think these dies are going to have to be a must have somehow in all the combinations so that you get the maximum variety of uses.
    Thank you Christina,
    Love and crafty hugs
