Adding the flowers ...

Hi Everybody,

At the beginning of December I showed you how to make a lovely card with Imperial Square

We used the die in its full size to create a 6 inch Silver and White Card

Yesterdays tutorial with   Imperial Square   showed you a way to alter the card to make it into a rectangle.

Todays card takes the design to a more frilly level by adding in some striped card for the background and some really flowery ribbon.

I also added in the beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts  and what a difference they make.

So although the card is still in pink and black the embellishments that you add can alter the appearance for you.

And I think this is such a pretty card and the Imperial Square such an amazing die to have in your collection.

The future is looking rosy as Spellbinders have some amazing things to bring to you this year and it is a journey you don't want to miss

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx


  1. Hi Christina
    Another lovely card today using the Imperial Sq. I'm looking forward to seeing what Spellbinders have up their sleeve for the coming year.

  2. Hi Christina, you are such a considerate crafter showing us numerous ways to use dies you have touched on whilst on the C&C launch. It really ensures us we get value for money when buying Spellbinder dies.
