Milly-May 1st Birthday
Good Morning Ladies,
I have had this Spellbinders Cascading Grace die for a while now, I have die cut it a few times but for some reason not got around to making a card with it.
Well I decided last night that I would tick that box, I looked at the die cut itself and decided that with its separate outer cutting edge it would be perfect for making the card base of the die itself, so I folded a piece of A4 card and put the die cutting edge just very slightly under the fold, cut it then cut a matt of periwinkle blue card to cover the base card as the base cut is not quite perfect because of the fold, once you have added the mat you can't tell, I covered the blue matt with a double sided adhesive sheet and then covered with with Iced Snow, I used the fancy part of the die to cut the decorative layer, adding the central die cut area with another blue mat, upon which I added my sentiment, which I die cut twice for depth, the second layer having a piece of double sided adhesive on top, once cut I added some super fine glitter. I arranged a small spray of flowers at the side of the card and finished with a few blue pearls.
I hope you like it xx
Cheryl sent me this photo of Milly-May on her First Birthday, doesn't she look adorable, all dressed up as Minnie Mouse, what a gorgeous cake she had too,
Thank you Cheryl for sharing this gorgeous photo xxx
Well I will report that Sue, Pat and I did briefly discuss thee EU Referendum, we didn't come to any conclusions though!! The country will have to wait for another week for us to put it right I'm afraid, we had far more pressing problems to solve like, how to ink up an embossing folder for letter pressing, Sue was trying the brayer method, as well as inking direct from ink pad and using a smoothie, non gave the perfect result, so sue has taken the folder home to continue her trials!!
Janet I hope you're not too fed up with all your measuring! All for a good cause, fingers crossed my lovely xx
Val, love and extra hugs coming across to you at this trying time xxx
