Autumn Days white on white


One of my greatest pleasures this year has been using seam binding in my projects and I was so excited when I saw it in Cherry Cobbler! At Make My Monday the monthly theme is Seasonal and this week they're asking for cards incorporating red ribbon so out came my Cherry Cobbler seam binding again! Come and have a look:


I've used my Autumn Days set again to stamp the main panel.The edges were distressed then it was layered onto textured white, before attaching to the card front.


This lovely Christmas sentiment from Beautiful Season is just as at home on the outside as the inside of a card. You can see the shimmer of the silver embossing in this photo and the shine of the rhinestones - just like a frosty Christmas morning!


Have I ever mentioned how much I love seam binding ribbon? And in Cherry Cobbler? Hmm... yes, I think I might have done just once or twice... !


I tied the seam binding round the embossed mat, then the main panel was attached over the top with dimensionals so that it sits neatly over the ribbon.
Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Autumn Days, Beautiful Season
Ink: Real Red
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Markers, basic rhinestones, stamp-a-majig, versamark ink, silver embossing powder, heat tool, seam binding ribbon in Cherry Cobbler, Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder
I'd be delighted to order any of these supplies for you and can have them delivered to your address in the UK. I am committed to providing excellent customer service and am always happy to help and advise. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593. 

It really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Yesterday, on my way to collect my youngest son from school, it began to snow! There is something quite magical about snow at this time of year, although when I remarked on this to a shivering friend she was unable to share my enthusiasm! And as we walked back to the car through what had already turned to muddy slush, I must say I could see her point!

Thank you for spending a bit of your time here today and a big welcome to my new followers - I very much appreciate your support. I shall be back tomorrow with Three Minute Thursday and I'll hope to see you then!
