I had occasion to send a sympathy card to a friend who lost her brother recently. I have a lot of envelopes which were given to me that takes cards 4.25" x 8.5" so I needed to make my own cards.
I used my NBUS Spellbinders die that my Special Friend picked up for me at a Stamp Show in US. Isn't it just gorgeous. The die cut at the bottom comes out of the centre. There are two other cuts too, and I will no doubt share those with you another time.
The sentiment is a stamp I picked up quite by chance on a stall in our local market, it was second hand, but just what I needed. I used DI to stamp it. I just love the punched details on this die set.
Here is a close up of the die cut with all the detail. The flower and butterfly die cuts were made with my Memory Box dies, the flower was from another Special Friend who gave it to me when we met up earlier this year. You know I love it Kath!! Again, coloured with DIs.
Right then, off to play in the Playground as there were lots of white snippets used on this card. I am grateful to Miss of the Playground, who advised use of wax paper for fiddly die cuts, and boy is this a fiddly die cut! Worth the trouble though I think! I am also entering this into the Cuttlebug Challenge which this week is "Anything Goes".
Thanks for visiting. See you on the swings!!
