Good Morning all,
After last weeks pastel colours I thought I would turn up the volume with today's offering a simple blue and white card for a house move!
When chatting to a friend last week she mentioned that when she had decided to go down the Spellbinders route she had decided to base her collection on Labels four. It was only after this that I realised I had done the exact same thing as not only do I have the dies but all my recent stamp purchases are labels four friendly. I ordered, some weeks ago, a couple (OK a few) sets of stamps from Waltzing Mouse and it seems that nearly all of the fit within labels Four. Today I have used country labels four as the focal element on this card.
I actually started this one by stamping the white embossed border first onto pale blue cardstock before cutting it out with 2 dies from Spellbinders standard labels four. Next I cut a larger dark blue matt, using Core'dinations cardstock, using the larges die in the set and stamped / embossed the Home Sweet Home sentiment from the same set. I gently sanded this piece to give it a shabby-ish feel, and foam mounted the frame over it.
The backing paper is from an old Do'crafts goody bag and I simply ran a strip of Lace accent border (spellbinders again) cut in the same Core'dinations cardstock and sanded with a strip of ribbon over the top as I don't like raw edges.
Finally a bow, Hat Pin and old pearl button from my Mums button stash (now my button stash as can't remember last time my mum sewed a button on!) and finished.
