It's a lovely sunny evening as I prepare this post, and looks like we are in for a beautiful weekend. I am going to a charity Garden Party tomorrow so the weather should help entice the crowds.
A twisted easel card today in blush . . .
The card front has been embossed (but I have a confession - this is a sneaky peek at a new embossing folder design coming soon), before being die cut using the Spellbinders 5 x 7 Detailed Scallop die set. The embossed area has been highlighted with distress inks. I made two little slits with a craft knife, either side, to thread some seam binding ribbon through from the back, making a bow at the front.
The sentiment comes from the Creative Expressions Special Sentiments stamp set and has been die cut using the smallest die in the same 5 x 7 Detailed Scallop set.
The "stopper" for the easel has been made by die cutting a long piece of card using a die from the Spellbinders Parisian Accents set and seam binding ribbon has been threaded through this. Flowers have been added, made from spiral flower dies.The leaf sprays come from the Spellbinders Foliage Two die set.
The finishing touch was adding the butterfly.
This was die cut from an old drinks can, which I cut into, and was then coloured using alcohol inks.
