Make A Wish

Hello and a happy Memorial Day. 
Today i would like to show you a card made with some of my
Fairytale Collection stamps, Fairy dust Tilda and Dandelion background, OMG.. when i saw that Dandelion image i badly wanted that one :-) so glad that one did not sell out before i was able to put my order in. Anyhow… I did get some stamps from the up coming Wedding Collection and i was able to make a couple of cards at night but can you believe it.. i had no time to take pictures. My in laws are here since Friday and omg.. they work so hard in our backyard that i have a bad feeling if i would go inside the house :-) but now my yard looks soooo pretty again, just a small piece to go and i think i can do that later next week myself.


I did show my card already Sonja via email and she asked me how i have created the frame… so i want for those of you who might want to know also how i have created this.

You will need
Spellbinder Classic Frame & Label one

from white paper run Classic Frame twice though cutting machine, emboss and sponge with ink
Lay on Soft Suede your largest die from Label 1 and the third counting from outside to inside (skip one use the next) cut and than emboss. You can adhere the dies temporarily with some double sided tape so they do not move when you cut and emboss.

Cut your dandelion image also with largest of Label1 and adhere it underneath the soft Suede frame. Than cut the 2 pieces of Classic frame apart and just use the top part of it. Arrange the pieces so they would make a frame – i tried to match up the scrolls with each other (you can see what i mean on the left corner). It was time consuming but i think it was worth to try for this card.

Papers: DCWV “Linen Closet”

haut/skin: Blush blossom, Pretty In Pink
Hintergrund/Background: Cool Caribbean
Kleider/clothes: Cool Caribbean und River Rock
Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo und some Walnut Stain
zum Schatten/shadows vertiefen habe ich Going Grey genommen
Metal pieces inside the flowers are by
Whiff Of Joy
Sentiment: Computer generated (font is: Little Days) cut with Word Window punch


Thank you for your time…have a great day today i will soon start my ribs for the grill.. yum yum
