New Spellbinders die card giveaway!


This is the card I am giving to one of my lucky followers. Is it you? I hope so. If you are the winner, you can tell me if you would like a sentiment added to the card and I will do that before sending it to you.

This card is a 5-1/2" square and features the new Spellbinders die Fleur de Lis! Isn't it purdy? I love this new die!!!!! For this card, I stamped French Script onto the vanilla card base and then aged it with Tim Holtz tea dye ink, Memento Rich Cocoa and Memento Tuxedo Black inks and a sponge. I cut the Pendant die using Kraft card stock and used my inks again to age it. I then cut the Pendant die again, from black card stock, cutting out the center. The center is a separate piece, so you can cut it or not. I didn't cut it out of the craft card stock. I turned the black pendant on the kraft one to really set them off. I used dimensionals to pop up all the die cut pieces so that the shadows add even more dimension. The center piece was cut from vanilla card stock and distressed with the inks one again. I added the rose button to the center with a glue dot. I added half pearls to the black pendant for just a bit more ooomph! So, what do you think? Do you like it? If so, you'd better read down a few posts to find out how to have a chance to make it yours. It is a card, but it would be beautiful framed and hung on a wall too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Karen
