Tattered Lace-Florentine Bells
Well I have been playing today with my new tattered lace dies. I bought their first magazine which arrived last week and it came with a free die, yes the one I have used on today's card.
It is a beautiful die and I have to admit the magazine is the best mag I have bought in a long time. Admittedly it is devoted to tattered lace dies but then I expected that. I only have a few of their dies but it was worth it for me so if you have lots it is a 'must have'. It is packed full of information, hints, tips and samples. No advertising which was lovely there was even a tutorial on making ribbon bows with one's fingers. Something I will be looking at as I am useless at tying bows, even with a bow maker they look awful. I am looking forward to the next magazine they release and I think they will be monthly.
My card today, as I said it using the Tattered lace Florentine bells and the Spellinders d-lites corner sprigs. I have used some centura pearl, silver pearlescent and silver mirri, although I will admit the mirri doesn't look silver but gold so my apologies for my photography, david bailey I am not!
It is a really simple card, just some matting and layering, which has been done with the spellbinders 5x7 matting basics A & B sets plus the tattered lace dies and corner sprigs but those dies make it look more difficult that it was to the non crafter.
I never ceases to amaze me what can be done with a bit of card and how relaxing our craft can be.
Hope you like today's card.
See you all soon and do take care.
