This card was made at the same time as this one using my local craft shop purchase and the Classic Ovals SM die I seem to be using heavily this week.
I started, once again, by folding a sheet of A4 cardstock in half and mounted a sheet of Navy card which I scored horizontal lines using my score-pal on top. The simple lines of the background give such a classic twist to a card background.
The strip across the front is cut using Spellbinders Curved borders one die using one of the filigree dies and the simple edge cut die. I cut this twice across a sheet of cream linen card making sure that the strip was wide enough to take the focal element cut with spellbinders classic ovals SM.
I then used other, matching dies in the set to make a strip in the same floral paper (Do'crafts V&A Collection) with a cream strip cut on top.
The focal element is cut in various sizes of the ovals in alternate colours with pearls added to the cream layers.
Finally a simple strip of navy satin ribbon with a hand tied bow and the sentiment on top. A few pearls thrown around, as per usual at the moment, and hopefully an elegant card is ready to go.
