Embossing and Dies

Happy Saturday everyone I hope that everyone is well and  keeping warm its freezing here but thankfully we have no snow at present. Today I thought I'd share a card with you all that I made as a sample for the ladies at the craft group I go to on a Thursday to make this week. They asked to do an embossed card with dies so this is what I came up with. Its a fairly straightforward design as we have different levels of ability in the group.





Card Recipe

I made the A5 cards from a sheet of 300gsm card
Purple card and the smooth white card are both from  Ross Papercraft show 
A4 dots embossing folder is Die'sire from Crafters Companion
The medallion design A4 embossing folder came free with my Ebosser
The centre die is Spellbinders from the Moroccan Accents set I bought it in Michael's in Florida
Spellbinder Circle die for the sentiment
Leaf die is Joycrafts
The flower dies are Poppystamps dies  
Sentiment is Lili of the Valley Post Mark stamps sadly they no longer have this in either rubber or digi. Such a shame as its a sentiment stamp set I use a lot.
Pearls and ribbon from my stash 
Corner rounder used on the bottom of the banner strips 

Some of the ladies found matching the strips and  getting then placed evenly a bit of a challenge but everyone got there in the end and everyone got finished in the two hours we have.
Well Michael is going to football this afternoon the first time he's made it this year so I'm crafting and catching up on a couple of phone calls in the warm !! Enjoy the weekend everyone love and  hugs Carole x

What a lovely card design! Love the colour combination and the embossing. I'm sure the ladies had great fun making the card. I hope Michael enjoyed the football match and his team won.
I'm sorry if I've missed any posts but I've been poorly with a bad cold that Stuart kindly gave me which affected my MS quite badly. I would much have preferred him to have given me craft goodies instead :D. Debra x
