.... I've made this card for my friend Annette - it was her birthday on 16th January - and I missed it!! How could I possibly miss her birthday? Well, I did, so it's time for a belated card. And it just so happens that I've used the themes from two challenges to make this card. The first challenge is from Crafty Cardmakers and is to use a die and the colour red, the second is the Splitcoaststamper Clean and Simple Challenge - where the inspiration is a great card by Cindy.
I've taken the layout of Cindy's card and turned it on its side. This is one of the quickest and easiest cards I've made, but I really like it. Using my trusty Waltzingmouse stamps - I stamped one of the frames from Very Vintage Labels No 10 - one with lots of pretty flourishes - in Versamark. I added plain red embossing powder and heated - voila - a beautiful red frame. I then cut this out using Spellbinders Labels 10. The greeting is plain and simple and comes from Waltzingmouse (of course) - Fancy Phrases. I added a satin ribbon, tied a big bow and added two small black pearls. Job done!! Really pleased with this card.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Fancy Phrases, Very Vintage Labels No 10
Spellbinders: Labels 10 (S5-0220 die # 3
Accessories: Red embossing powder, red satin ribbon and black pearl gems
I'm going to be spoilt this morning, but will be back later today.
