Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

June 24, 2015

Craft Stash ...

Hi Everybody,

A little while ago I was asked to join the on line design team for Craft Stash. 

This is a new company that are bringing crafting supplies and goodies to the UK market.

They have brought out their own brand of dies called  Apple Blossom Dies  and I added a link to them in the right hand side bar for you to see

More dies will be added as they become available.

This card features the Ornate Heart  and it is very ornate.

I made the card in white with a deep blue and added in some matching ribbon and a diamante centre for the bow.

The base to the card is created with the  6x6  Matting Basics A&B  and the A4 embossing folder from Spellbinders

The sentiment is one that was free with Simply Cards and papercrafts magazine a few months ago

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  11. Good morning Christina, this die looks stunning, it's lovely to see it cut, this new company look to be very competitively priced which U.S. Slways a great thing.
