Last week I went to my local craft shop with Wendy and Val (in Spain) and I promised I would show something made with whatever I bought. Well here it is, Wendy managed to grab a couple of dies I fancied so I was left with Spellbinders Scalloped borders one. Once I got home I had buyers remorse as at €28.50 it was more expensive than buying the die online however as soon as I started cutting with it I loved it and made about 5 cards in a couple of hours.
This is a deceptively simple looking card that took a lot longer, and looks better in real life, than you would think.
I started by cutting three strips of cream card with different combinations of the borders, I added pearls to one strip then layered them up to give the frill at the bottom.
Next I cut a strip of the patterned paper, from stash so no idea where from sorry, with the same curved die and added this on top before a simple stripe of blue silk ribbon. This was placed at the bottom of the card which was made with the same paper and layers of cream and navy PMD card.
Another good thing that came from the visit to the craft shop was that Ollie, the owner, agreed to me doing a class there I have 4 people who want to attend so far just 4 more to go!
