I needed a sympathy card for a very good friend. I didn't want to use the last one I had in my stash, it needed to be special. I used SSS Leaf dies one the leafy branch the other the outline. I cut the solid in vellum and the outline in gold. I left three leaves in from the outline die. A small but heartfelt sentiment and here is my card.
I am entering this card at Addicted to CAS- Sympathy.
Some of my crafty friends know as I was soliciting opinions last week; after we arrived home from visiting Hubs folks in Ohio, I set about making my card for a GD spot. In the process of embossing a piece of paper with my beloved Vagabond...I killed it. Not the paper, not the folder---but my trusty cutter of 8 years.
So the search began for a replacement. I need an electric cutter as my grip is not strong and hand cranking can be painful.
This past weekend I welcomed a Gemini Jr to the crafty space. I love that it self feeds, its smaller so I have more desk space to destroy with bits and pieces. I have figured out a sandwich that allows me to use the magic mat to cut so yay on all sides. I have an old spellbinders grand calibur that I will use for the embossing folders. Hubs has offered to crank...
So after rearranging my work are for the new hardware I hope to be back at the crafty desk, making more cards after a slow spring and summer.
Thanks so much for visiting.
