Stamped frame card

Hello friends

Today's card features my most favourite die from the 
Sapphire Plus Collection - this is Decorative Label 1 Plus
combined with Decorative Label 1 to cut the inner frame.
I stamped a blank white card using a stamp from 
a US company called Layers of Color,
overlayed the mirror card frame and added Sprigs and little flowers 
(Homespun set).

Typed and die cut sentiment to finish.

I'm thinking replace the flowers with mini poinsettias and this could
be a Christmas card...ok getting ahead of myself here,
it is still January...just!

Today is my eldest's birthday, we are celebrating this evening
by going out for an Indian meal - yum.
His gifts consist of all thinks geeky boy, new mouse, wrist rest and
World of Warcraft books.  
I confess I did buy a card for him as opposed to making one!

Take care friends, I'm back tomorrow.


  1. A lovely card Christine, I like the idea of stamping and then layering the die cut over the image, very effective.
    Happy Birthday to Mitchell and hope you all enjoy your meal this evening.

    I am loving this card, the stamp is a fabulous 'orientation' for the die-cut, I love it.
    Oh no !!!! your confession, haha, but you do have good reason after being on TV all week and also doing samples too, 'tempus fugit' it really does haha.
    Have a lovely evening, your Indian meal sounds yum (and it's only breakfast time haha).
