Best Wishes

Hello, there, and happy Monday!  Today I’d like to share how I spent my Saturday morning.  I simply wanted to use a gorgeous new die from a recent Dies R Us shopping trip and the project evolved on its own into a wedding card.   I don’t currently need a wedding card, but it can’t hurt to have one in reserve, can it?

This is a 5 x 7 card.  I usually make A2, but I find if I’ve got the right stuff to fill the space I like the larger size, particularly for so momentous an occasion as a wedding.   The die I couldn’t live without is the beautiful Sue Wilson Gemini Die – Orion.   It’s currently out of stock because apparently I’m not the only one who loves it.  No worries.   If you love it, too, put yourself on the waiting list and I guarantee you’ll get an email as soon as it comes in.    Perhaps you’d fancy one of the other Gemini borders, so for your convenience I’ll link you to all of them here.   Good luck trying to choose just one!

To help fill up the space I used an older Spellbinders die – Labels Twenty – as a base, and embossed it with a Swiss Dot folder.   I stamped my image on one of the Spellbinders Elegant Ovals and colored with Copic markers.  For accent I cut two Spellbinders Sprigs and positioned them with some additional flowers, a tag, and silver cord.

Join us here for something different every week day.  It’s a great way to become acquainted with dies you didn’t even know existed.  Or you may like to while away some time browsing the categories at Dies R Us – so many different brands in one place and fantastically fun shopping.   Perhaps you’d like to win a gift voucher to Dies R Us.  If so, link up a card on the Dies R Us Challenge Blog.   The current challenge is Summertime Fun.   All you have to do is use that theme and at least one die – any die.

Thanks so much for your time.  Have a happy day!
