Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Ancient Dies ...

Hi Everybody,

Todays card is created with dies and an embossing folder that must be at least ten years old and has been in my stash ...  for ever. 

The embossing folder is called Need A Rope and it is from Spellbinders and I have used cream card to make the layer and base card.

I have then ink smooshed a panel and added a  newer netting die to the top, again cut in cream. 

On the top of that I have used a flower from a Spellbinders set called Make A Wish and again this is ancient too and I don't know if they are still available.

But even though they are old the card is still really pretty and one I would be happy to send or receive.

Swap out the sentiment to fit your occasion. The one I have used is a sticker type that  I have added to some cream card and cut out. 

I must admit that I am am enjoying playing with my older stuff and it is fun finding things that I had forgotten about stuffed in drawers and cupboards. And I am not spending any money. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx



  1. Lovely card & great that you’re enjoying using older products.


  2. Hi Christina! I love this card! I haven't seen the Need A Rope embossing folder before but really like it. I'm always into anything that looks like net, mesh or burlap sacks, etc, so love the other folder as well.
    I got most of my Spellbinders dies & accesories when I first started to watch you. You had a link for a liquidation type store where I was able to get older products. I love them & they've been a life saver to have them over the past number of years.
    Thanks for sharing such a lovely card!

  3. A lovely card Christina, great inspiration. Love Anne Owens ❤️
