Have been feeling a bit down all day, and didn't want to waste the evening totally, so though blogging might help put me in a better frame of mind. So, a recent request for a wedding card with a cross gave me the perfect excuse to indulge myself with a purchase. And of course, that purchase would have to be of the Spellbinders variety - in this case Crosses 2. This also coincided with the return of my repaired Grand Calibur - I can't believe how much I missed it - so I was a happy bunny.
The 8" square base card and box have been made from a large sheet of Centura Snow White Pearl Card. The only other materials I used were Creative Expressions Coconut White card, ribbon and pearls. All the dies I used are from Spellbinders.
I cut the plain white card with Classic Triple Scallop Edgeability, and used both edges set slightly apart on the base card. The left hand side was embossed with That Special Touch Polka Dots mask, and the right hand side with the Small Polka Dots.
I cut the two larger crosses from the set using the pearl card, and mounted one on top of the other. This was matted onto an plain white oval, and in turn onto a pearl white Romantic Rectangle which was embossed with That Special Touch Doodle Daisies mask.
White satin ribbon was wrapped around the right hand part, The flowers and foliage were cut using Bitty Blossoms dies, and the letters from XCut Roma Alphabet die. Flat backed pearls provided the finishing touch.
The top of the box was decorated in the same way, except the words were replaced with pearls. The inside of the box was also decorated. I cut a decorative edge using Edgeabilities Inserts 6, and threaded ribbon through. A smaller cross was mounted on a smaller Romantic Rectangle, with Flourish Accents either side.
I was really pleased with the results - I haven't made a completely white on white card before!!
Be back soon.
