I have used my Spellbinder Diamond Strips and Accents again today. In the photo the card looks a little dull, but it really does look better in real life. I stamped the candle and greeting in Versamark and heat embossed with Detail Gold. This time I used the straight die along the edge of the dark green cardstock and used gold mirri card behind it. I then used a perforated blade to cut along the left hand side of it (if you look closely you can just see the little perforations) so that after Christmas the recipient can detach it and use it as a book mark. This was when Murphy's Law struck - yet again. I had in my hand a pack of gold tassels to add to the book mark - the operative word here is "had". I have laid them down and I've no idea where. I've searched everywhere but they have disappeared completely. I'll probably find them in the fridge, or somewhere equally stupid. LOL! In the end I stuck a piece of ribbon through the hole I had already punched - this will be replaced with the tassel when I find it!! When I find it I will take another picture and edit the post.
It has been such an awful day that I could not get a decent picture without the flash, which is why there is a bit of reflection off the gold mirri. I also knocked the camera off the shelf and it crash landed on the hardwood floor in the hall, and it took me ages to get it working again. What else can happen? I think I'll quit now before blogger goes off on me. Knowing my luck it probably won't schedule properly!
Have a good day everybody! Christine xx
