I bought a new Spellbinders die on Saturday and I have been playing with it. Many years ago I used to do Lacé work and still have a number of dies. I loved the look of it but it was extremely fiddly and sometimes you'd get right to the end and then your blade would slip!!! Dis-ars-ter Dahling - as Craig Revel-Horwood would say!! Anyway, when I saw this Spellbinders Diamond Strips and Accents I just had to have it!! And it didn't disappoint. I kept this card very clean and simple to show off the lovely cut and fold corner - but then I used lashings of pearls!!!!

This is a 6 x 6 card layered with a pearlised pink card to show off the cut work. I computer generated the sentiment, using Freehand 591 font , onto Labels 16 die. I love this font and use it a lot. The pink flower pearls were from WOC and the other pearls are from Hobbycraft.
I know Clean and Simple is not to everyone's taste but I've never been one who has to fill every little bit of space so I quite like it. It has been very dark here today but I did my best with the photograph.
Have a good day everybody.
With love from Christine xx
