I thought I would partake in the 'Oldie For Friday' posts, I think its good to have another look at some of our older cards made with the favourite dies of the time!
With this card I definitely was in my 'California Collection' phase, I do still love these dies mind!
I used the Italian Collection Borders (Creative Expressions) two cut in black and two in Soft Gold,
The base of the card is white, embossed with the Heart Lattice Embossing Folder, also by (CE)
I layered the Italian Borders together at either side of the card and the Central focal element is made up of the Californian Collection, I used both Basic Frames A and Decorative Frames B to layer up the black and soft gold card and then stamped the sentiment and embossed with Bright Gold Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder.
I then added a soft gold colour bow, topped with a black dazzler and a black and gold coloured stick pin and in the top corner I used cream card and soft gold card to die cut Delicate Daisies (CE) all of the above dies are designed by Sue Wilson, such a talented die and card designer!
I am going to sit and play with the die cuts that Myra sent me yesterday,
I do love that Butterfly die, it isn't as big as I thought, so I think I may treat myself, I haven't decided on any of the new collection yet, I like almost all of them, I think that some of the Portuguese dies look a little similar in shape to some of the other collections, but that could be a bonus for using them all together!
I cannot believe the drop in temperature over the last couple of days, it rained here almost constantly yesterday, which in fairness was forecast, but goodness me the chill factor certainly set in, I was shivering until the heating came on! I will be fetching my thick jumpers back out of the wardrobe!
Well whatever you are up to today I hope that you have a good one, I hope that all those of you with aches and pains find a little more comfort today!
Love and Hugs to all,
