Romance in the air!

Post 2.
Morning world!
Todays card is as you see an anniversary card.
The paper is a beautiful flock which I uncovered from my stash, it's from a  Laura Ashley collection called 'Love song' and it feels devine! The Clarity stamps 'letterbox' set have also been used, along with black card stock for matting/ layering, self adhesive pearls, organza ribbon and a white gel pen for finishing touches. I thought a basic cut and stick , and very flat and postable card was in order.
Have a crafty day.

Launching into Blogland!!!

Post no. 1. 
My intrepid toe is dipping in to blog land. 
I'm here to share some card creations I've rustled up. I've been so inspired by the many blogs I browse, I thought it was time to give back. Hope you enjoy.

This first card,  I made, after seeing a tutorial on you tube....hope the link works!!

It work like a 'flip-its' card , various dies are available from sizzix to achieve the same effect, but I wanted to use the many spellbinder dies I've aquired over the years. After trawling the internet I found the above tutorial, and adapted it to use any spellbinder nestability and any size base card. 
I've used g.c.d paper collection 'Paris Nights', Tim Holtz 'Elegant Flourishes' die, Joanna Sheens 'Cameo JS347' rubber stamp, and Clarity stamps 'Letter box' alphabet.
All for now.
