A little fussier...

Happy Tuesday,

Today's card is another one made with a borrowed die from Val in Spain.  This lace strip was a piece I cut whilst at Wendy's craft group and didn't know what to do with it.  The card base had been cut for weeks and I didn't know how to finish it off.  You could therefore call this card a marriage of convenience yet somehow it worked!

I really like the mixture of the teal, white and soft gold even though this isn't a traditional pairing

Spellbinders lace die
Marianne rose die
spellbinders Mystical embrace die
white seam binding
white, teal and soft gold cardstock
crafters companion sentiment stamp.



  1. Hi John. Great card. I love the teal/soft gold/ white combo. Take care.

  2. Great card John and I think I spy the Faux leaves from Sue W too They're next on my to buy list Did you see that I wrote another comment yesterday re the card So pleased I worked it out Today's card is gorgeous It may be a marriage of convenience but it's a match made in heaven

  3. Lovely John and thanks for giving me ideas of what to do with the die.

    Sorry about confusion you Ang. What i write sounds good in my head but it obviously doesn't translate to paper.LOL I've got the Lattice Heart Striplet and yours is the Embroidered Striplet.

    Enjoy your day John.
    Love Val x.

    1. Aw, Val, if you see this, it was only coz I was trying to work out what Striplet John had used when I realised he hadn't lol!
      Take care

  4. Eh up John
    Well, Im getting black rather than teal on my screen but no matter as it still looks lovely.
    Vals die is the Heartfelt Creations Decorative Lace Border. I know this as shamefully, I went mad for this, bought it and then have never used it. So, if you want to cut it again, let me know lol!
    Have a great day.

  5. Apologies for not commenting on yesterdays card-it was stunning & so is todays. Off work today as got workmen due at 9am-think i'll be watching C&C tv all day!!


  6. Morning John,
    Great card, but I'm not getting any teal colour so I'll use my imagination.

  7. Beautiful card John, love the design and that colour Teal is gorgeous. Hope you are settling in a bit now.

    Love & Hugs

  8. Hi John,
    Another beautiful card today and yes for some reason it's showing black instead of teal on my PC to but still looks gorgeous. I really must invest in those faux leaves of Sue's as they are a lovely addition to flowers and I love the effect.

    Love Sheila xx

  9. Hi John,
    stunning card today. I love your fab design, and those roses are very beautiful.
    Sorry Mrs Duck or Ang, I can see Teal.
    You can always guarantee you have thought of a better way to use a die.
    Love coming to see what you have created.
    Crafty regards. Jenny L.

  10. Love the card. The only teal I see is the two tiny flowers!

  14. No teal on my screen either, but no worries, I can choose an alternative colour, and the design will work equally well - you designs are so versatile!
