Perfect for a Wedding ....

Hi Everybody,

I made this card and videoed  it to show you what I did and I can't wait to know what you all think of it.

It has been on YouTube since Friday and has had over a 1,400 views already and 37 comments ... and people seem to like it.

This picture  does not do it justice as it is a really beautiful card full of sparkle on the filigree panel



The listed die is the only one I have used and as I say in the video it can be a bit fiddly to cut.

You may need to pass it through your die cutter a couple of times.

But I tell you it is so worth it and you will be really pleased with the end result.

Now for the supplies used ....

The flowers are from  Wild Orchid Crafts   and all the glitter used on the panel and flowers is from Glitter Magic   ... and this is the glitter that is in the "Give Away"

The lovely lilac  pearls are some of the Bulk Buy "Bling"  from  Want2Scrap   and the ribbon with a silver edge is from Mei Flower

The sentiment and the  Paisley embossing folder  are from  Crafters Companion  ... and the link will take you straight to the  A4 folder.


If you haven't see the latest "Give Away" then now is the time to take a look at the prize and


More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  1. Hi Christina...love the card, I followed your video, and made one using the butterfly corner die, as I don't have the one that you used. It didn't turn out as lovely as yours though.......Ann

  28. Only just realized how to make a comment I know sad. Love the card wish I had the die. I live in Spain and everyone wants so much to post things here I have to get my daughter to send things to me. That takes forever! Have to say your site is the best I have visited congratulations to your film crew I can see and hear clearly all that is happening unlike most of the sites.Wonderful!! I have started a card group here in spain and we meet once a month and your site is a great source of inspiration to me. Thankyou so much. Can't quite understand those who think that your cards are OTT, surely they are there for every ones own interpretation all they have to do is take an idea and use their own leave out what they don't like. My husband even admitted to viewing one of your tutorials yesterday. Thank you again I look every morning to see what you have made it's now become a joke with us. What's Christina got to say today!

  31. I love all your work. It is very inspirational. I look forward your posts everyday. Looking at all the work again was fun. For me, it was hard to find where to post comments as it is so far down from the beginning. Thanks for the opportunity for one of your cards.

  32. I came across this card recently and just had to try it. I ordered the die you used and went to work. Your card is so beautiful.
