You Make Life Special...

Hello friends,
Today I'm sharing with you the final project I made for TV, a card using Layered Flowers, Lattice Accents and M-Bossabilities - Regal.  All the sentiment stamps I use are from the Gratitudes set from Creative Expressions, you can view the stockists here.
The Kraft Shop and Pickleberry Papercrafts are good stockists of Creative Expressions products too.
So, the card - I've embossed and lightly distressed cream card with a kraft cardstock base.  
The die cuts are then applied and a ribbon bow - 
some days my bows look better than others, I think this one was a little rushed!  
Pop by tomorrow to see if you are a winner of some 'Candi'.
The crafty space is having a bit of a sort out so I think there will be some more giveaways very soon.
Take care lovely friends.

Hi Christine
i love this card. Sending off for my dies today (had to wait for payday, so missed out on all the deals, but refuse to miss out on the dies).
Not having a good day my grand calibre has broken so am having to get a new one.

Nice card Christine, you know, I think the bow is in keeping with the distressing around the embossed cream card layer. Hope you get further along with your craft room sort out than I ever do!!

Like the three single-layered flowers spilling off the corner of the card it is just a lovely design feature and balances Sue's border die so well. Anne

Morning Christine

I love the use of your patterned paper to cut the border and flowers, adds a whole new look to them.

I really love Sue's border die and loved this card when it was shown on the TV but it is nice to see a close up. Really lovely Christine and I think those flowers are beginning to grow on me.

I really liked this card when you demonstrated it. I love these flower dies. Because they are a bit different I think they can easily be used on mens card as a pattern rather than a flower. xx

Hi, another lovely card. My raspberry plate has arrived so I can try out my M-bossibilities folders. Your card will be a starting point, love the die cuts using patterned paper/card. No papercrafting today, have been spinning fleece.

Hi Christine,
I liked this card when you did it on C&C and they are lovely in the patterned paper.
I have a little tip for those dies if you or anyone is interested.
Using what I call the base die in that set, cover the inner surface of the die with perfect medium, place card ontop and run through GC. Remove from die and immediately cover with clear glitter embossing powder (Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle is lovely) then heat emboss (if any ink missing use versapen to touch up and add powder). When used as the first layer below the other flower diecuts it gives a lovely gentle twinkle for those times when lots of glitter isn't wanted.
Fab combo's are:- Red flowers over black sparkle embossing - Black flowers over clear or white sparkle
and pink flowers over a soft green sparkle. Hope you like the idea.
All the best Linda x
