what I used:
Crafters Companion Catitudes CD - topper 83 & sentiment 15 (re sized with graphics program)
Catitudes Perfect Patterns embossing folder
Catitudes paper pad (for flowers)
Crafters Companion Signature Collection, English Country Garden, Grand Floral dies
6" x 6" white base card
circle dies to make the hoop frame
green card & white pearl card
good quality 210gsm mat print paper
blue & green bakers twine and jute twine
pearl embellishment, small cotton bobbin & blue satin bow
This card is all about the finishing touches and the image is so lovely you couldn't really go wrong. The only bit that you have to think about is making sure that the printed image fits inside the smallest circle die that you will be using to make the frame.
The frame is made using the pearl card and two circle dies and then wrapping the twines around it once it is cut out.
The pattern on the embossing folder is so classy and really pops when used on the pearl card.
Yes I would definitely send this card to myself, it ticks all my boxes.
I have been waiting what seems like such a long time to share this Catitudes collection with you and it has been a real test for me because I love it so much and had such a fantastic crafty time making all the samples. I am eagerly awaiting my next project which I think will be with me this week but it will take a lot to beat Catitudes.
I have to go into work tomorrow for an allergen training course and snow is forecast here in Lincolnshire so I hope it waits till I`m safe home or even better doesn't snow at all. I hate driving in snow ever since I got stuck on an icy hill a few years ago and had to watch whilst lots of cars skidded into each other all around me, that was the year when they ran out of grit and didn't grit the roads. I hope you all keep safe and warm and snow free (unless you like snow and then you can have mine).
