Final Burgundy...

Happy Thursday,

If you can join me for the launch of Christmas In Julky at Inspirations in Preston today and tomorrow.  I will be demoing my new range of stamps and media plate frames today.  Tomorrow I will be sharing a sneak peak of my New Christmas Die range exclusively in store!

Back to today and the third card in the series using the Bee Balm collection and the Burgundy Linen card.  This uses the same dies sets and colours as the cards on the last 2 days just in a different configuration.

For today's version I cut the background into the burgundy card lengthways (landscape) I then used the larger die in the Bee Balm Ovals die set at the top and bottom.  The die is designed to fit exactly along the side of the panel.

I cut the different sized tags included in each set mounting them on each other in alternate colours and studded the centre of the flowers with pearls.

I added the large spider bows on each side and layers of the white and burgundy.

  12. Hello John,
    Another striking card today. I hope you have a great day in Preston but I hear Myra is going so, if I were you, I'd make myself scarce ha ha.
    love Maureen x

  13. Hello John,
    I’m so glad you didn’t take Maureen’s advice!! It was lovely to meet you and see all your lovely cards in real life! I promise the Media Plates will come out later today! Ha ha!
    I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and learned loads! Thank you!
    Love Myra x

  14. Hi John. Another lovely card again today, I can't decide which one I like the best and once again it is great to see yet another version of a card in burgundy using all the same dies.


  15. Hello John,
    May I say it was lovely to meet Barbara D from the blog as well! X

  16. Sorry I am late John. Been a busy day doing my pottery. Love this card. I love the bows. Thank you. Myra really enjoyed her afternoon and when I spoke to her she was off to try out her media plates. Haven’t heard from her since so she must be enjoying herself. Take care and enjoy

  17. The burgundy cards have been lush. I do like the ribbon on this one and I believe I'd pick it for my favorite.
    Have a great weekend,
