Friday Die Day

Hello friends

You was expecting a flower wasn't you?!
I thought I would mix it up a little bit and bring you something else this 
Friday Die Day.

Today I'm featuring Wrought Iron - a Die D-Lite and incorporating it in a card (not a tag!)
This is how it looks cut/embossed.
I'm making a simple design card, the papers are Graphic 45 - Secret Garden.
Cut a piece of the script design to fit behind the Wrought Iron fencing.
Cut/emboss Sprigs and insert so it looks like it is growing...
I've used one of the tag dies from Back to Basics Tags, looped it over the top of the fence!
The stamped sentiment is one of Marion Emberson's stamp sets - It's All In The Words.
The card base, cream linen cardstock with a piece of green patterned paper - again,
Graphic 45 - Secret Garden.
Affix the decoration to the bottom section.
Tiny little flowers...
and black pearls to the middle.
Wrought Iron looks especially nice cut from Spellbinders Craft Foils -
Precious Metals - particularly for wedding/anniversary cards.

News on pre-orders....
Spellbinders have announced:
"the newest releases to your favourite Spellbinders retailers has begun".
(Ooooo that means not too much longer to wait!)
In celebration, from March 31st to April 4th,
Spellbinders are giving you a chance to win the newly released products.

I will be sure to keep you updated on all items being shipped.

And...thank you for all your good wishes yesterday, Elliott did brilliantly
with his MRI, so much so the hospital presented him with a gift -
all the Harry Potter books in a box set!
To say he was pleased is an understatement!

Have a lovely weekend - take care friends.

Morning Christine,
A lovely card using the wrought iron gate, don't have this die as I don't think I would get much use from it, you may have changed my mind.
Well done Elliot, and a lovely gift well deserved, I wonder how many times Elliot has read the books.

Good morning Christine,
Lovely FDD, what is that sprig die, I don't have that one, I guess I know where the flowers are from!
I hope Elliott enjoys his books, they are totally fab, I have read every one, to myself and to my children, we all love them. That lot will keep him busy, I was thinking about you both, fingers crossed for great results.

Maggie said...

Hello Christine. This is a lovely card and one that I shall copy immediately. Love those Graphic 45 papers too. What an amazing gift for Elliott. I'm sure he's read all the books already but he can treasure the boxed set and hand it down - a family heirloom! xxMargaretxx

Pat S Witney said...

Hi Christine
Die Friday comes round so quick, and yes I was expecting flowers. Love the wrought iron. The paper reminds me of a window blind. Not to sure why though. Glad that Elliot did so well with this MRI scan, and what a wonderful gesture to him the Harry Potter books.

utilitygirl said...

Hi Christine
So pleased to see that Elliot is doing well. It must be such a worry for you. I'm sure he will enjoy the books I certainly did.
I have taken to doing your 'wrapper for a bar of chocolate' lately. A quick and effective way to give a small gift. One went to my granddaughter at uni in Bath, one to an aunt who is recovering from a fall and now working on one for my grandsons to give their mum on Sunday, along with the card and flowers. Feel quite pleased with myself - thank you for the inspiration x

Patricia Howarth said...

Morning Christine, Wow !! Congratulations to Elliott, what a fabulous surprise, bet you are 'over the moon' and well done !!
I have all these elements you have used in your card, it is gorgeous, lovely and fresh, love the idea of the tag looped over the wrought iron, brilliant.
Lots of love from Patricia xx
