on a Roll

Hi Crafty Friends

One of our craft clubbers hasn't been able to make it to the club for ages, and it was her birthday recently, so I popped round with a card. I really wanted to try out my new Spellbinders border die (had to buy it after we'd used it in the class Margaret did for us), and I'm still on a roll with the rolled roses. My latest rolled rose die (a nameless cha cha cha die) is, I think the best yet - even if I did buy it, thinking it would make fir cones!
I used a mix of Spellbinders and Tattered Lace dies for the sentiment panel, and another cha cha die for the leaves, I love the way they emboss.



here's to hoping our pal can get things sorted so she can return, in the meantime
happy crafting everyone.

    1. Hi Sok, thank you for all your lovely comments on my blog posts. Do you have a blog where you post your own cards? I would like to visit and leave a comment.
      Making the roses is easy with the die cut shape, but you can do similar ones with hand cut pieces. Here is a You tube video which shows how
