I know I have mentioned this before but I love the way that the Sue Wilson dies match so well with Spellbinders (maybe its the American imperial heritage!)
Today's card therefore mixes the two with The SW Californian background and faux quilled leaves (yes alright another new purchase!) and my new spellbinders Tranquil Moments set.
I started by cutting the background in white hammered PMD card stock before foam mounting it over a sheet of blush pink and Kraft card. Next I cut the largest die from the tranquil moments set and used the smaller label die in the centre. This was mounted over the background (oh OK I added a few pearls first).
Next I made the centrepiece by using the piece form the middle die and hand cutting a label in Kraft before adding a rim of the white and stamped the sentiment. I then added a thread of ribbon and a bow before adding the foliage.
The foliage die is a great addition and since receiving it on Friday and Mr Next Door being here I have managed to make three cards using it already Its amazing how much you can do when someone is snoring away on the sofa! I added the foliage in sprigs, some straight form the die others where I have trimmed them down to give different effects. I always look at my dies to see what parts I can use I don't always use the whole die cut.
Hopefully you will like this mix of genres and colours!
