For You

Hi everyone. This weekend I have been on a roll. I have managed to complete three craft projects! My latest project which I am going to share is the WMSC #86. This card was trial and error with a surprise along the way!

I decided that I would use a cameo as the main focal image and layer it with a Spellbinders die. 

When I die cut two potential dies and placed them against the background paper, they faded away into the background.
I added a paper doily and that dramatically changed the look of the cameo. I road tested both Spellbinders dies with the doily and it just didn't seem to look right. I then layered them together and presto! Perfect!

I finished the card with a bow and a tag.


Paper: Kaisercraft Chapter One 6 ½” paper pad, black cardstock

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Cameo to Go

Ink: Stampin’ Up basic black

Other: Spellbinders Shapeabilities Fancy Tags two and fancy Tags Three, Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic ovlas large, Hooked on Craft trinket pin, pearl brad, Fiskars 1.5” tage punch, ribbon, Bow easy, paper doily.

Thanks for stopping by!
