International Ambassadors are blog hopping!

Hello friends

  The Spellbinders International Ambassadors are having an informal blog hop again
and this time we are heading back in time and going Victorian!

 We have been having so much fun with these blog hops and delighted at how many of you
visit, play along and leave such lovely comments.  
I hope you are getting to know us and seeing our different styles,
each one of us is unique in our creative styles - so there is something for everyone!


From this beautiful selection of dies I've chosen to use Foliage Lattice.
The die set is two pieces, an inset and border.
For my project I chose to use just the inset.
I positioned this onto white cardstock on my cutting plate together with
5 x 7 Matting Basics.
Onto the reverse I applied 3D Foam Squares and affixed a piece of
patterned paper - My Mind's Eye - On Trend.
Attached this to a further 5 x 7 Matting Basics die cut and a white card front.
Now for some embellishments - Ivy cut from matching white card,
Pretty Petals C cut from the same pack of My Mind's Eye papers and a stamped
sentiment with a hand cut banner.
Clustered these together in the bottom left corner, tiny pearls added and it's finished!
Some close up pics - I love the embossed areas of this die.


 
For more inspiration with the Victorian collection
here is the list of blogs to visit, have fun looking at the all the different projects.

We will be back with more!

Good morning.
This is a lovely card. I haven't seen this die before. It's beautiful.

Jane Willis said...

So elegant and beautiful - and a design that could be the basis for many cards, as the nature of the card would change completely with a different choice of backing paper. Lovely

Littlelamb said...

Lovely card Christine. I hadn't seen this die before but it is certainly one to look out for.

ros hodgkins said...

Hi, I really like the look of this die uncut. For me it loses something in the cut, and I have seen it many times and in many colours so it's not personal it's design. X Ros

Margaret Wilson said...

I have this die and couldn't seem to get a card made that I was happy with but having seen your card with the coloured, patterned background I'm going to try again. Thanks for the idea xx
