Cardz 4 Galz Haberdashery

Hello once again. I hope everyone is doing well. There is anew challenge starting at Cardz 4 Galz, and this time the theme is ‘Haberdashery’. We want to see your creations using ribbons, bows, lace etc.

Here is my card:

Now, if you follow me regularly, you know this is certainly not the kind of card I usually create – that is why being on the Design Team for this particular challenge – well – challenges me too.

It challenges me to think outside of the box, to try new techniques, and to use some of the stash I have – which I have even forgotten I have – if you get my drift.

The cream die cut is from an older Spellbinders Card Creator die set, using the biggest of the dies – and cut very well and first time with my Gemini Junior – a new one after my first one broke!

I used a piece of lace across the middle, and heat embossed the Thirsty Brush and Co sentiment in a copper colour. I love this very simple sentiment, it can be used for so many different occasions.

The leaf cluster and the three flowers were part of the Simon Says Stamp Crafty Surprise parcel, and come from Prima Marketing. That parcel was packed full of stuff, absolutely full of stuff – but most of which I couldn’t see myself using………until now!

Doing the DT card for this challenge has actually made me look again at the contents of this parcel, and I can actually see myself using more of the stuff than I thought – I am sure I will be sharing with you at some point.

I also added some green pearl accents – make unknown – for some extra interest.

Anyhoo – my take on the Haberdashery theme – lace, flowers, pearls.

I hope you can come and join us, and I certainly do look forward to seeing what you create with this theme.
