Today's card is made using the same background as yesterday which Val kindly informed us was Spellbinders Cris Cross die. I also felt really bad as I didn't mention that the card was made as a thank you card for Val and it was in her possession, sorry Val!
I started by cutting the background die using a piece of mid blue card from my stash. I then made a frame using spellbinders labels 35 in white by using the largest and next size down. Next I cut a mat in White using the largest die in the set and foam mounted the background over this and added a few pearls. The frame is then foam mounted over the top of this to give a lovely set of layers and dimension.
I repeated the technique, however this time I didn't add the foam and placed a pearl in the centre. This was rotated and foam mounted onto the from adding a bow made of seam binding. The whole piece was mounted onto a hand cut card blank at 12cm x 12cm with layers of white and blue added by making each square half a centimetre smaller each time.
Finally I added the sentiment which is just stamped onto a die cut tag from DoCrafts and a few of Wendy's beautiful hat pins ( don't worry the wonderful Wendy has supplied me with a hundred or so of her handmade pins so these will continue for a while at least!)

I have finally got round to starting the unpacking of the craft stuff and am hopefully having 2 desks delivered tomorrow (I use a LOT of space) so there may be some UK made creations next week!
I love the clean crisp look of this card and would suit any occasion or person!
