♥ Elegant Golden Invitation ♥

Happy Saturday! Are you enjoying Fall so far? Its kind of hard to enjoy it when it's been so warm. I can't wait for some "sweater weather". I can't believe that Halloween is right around the corner! Which means Christmas will be here before we know it! I don't even want to think about that! LOL Anyway, I wanted to share a card I made using a beautiful Die by Amazing Paper Grace for Spellbinders. It is from the new Candlewick Sampler Collection and it is called Candlewick Petticoats Etched Dies. It is perfect to make a "pocket" with or just use as an embellishment. Here I used it as a pocket for my card front to hold an invitation. It would be great any party or even a Wedding or Shower. I adhered it by simply adding some small foam dots to the sides and bottom of the die cut. To make it even more secure, I also added a couple drops of hot glue to some of the foam dots.

You can find more of Becca's gorgeous Dies HERE at the Spellbinders Website or HERE on  And...hint, hint! All of her Dies are on SALE at!!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Have you ever needed to make a card and hunted through your stash and found that you could not find a sentiment with the right word?  Well, look no more!  It was out of that frustration that Becca created a sweet set that will accommodate that exact word you are looking for with One Kind Word Alphabet Collage.  

Now you can headline with Sorry, Amazing, Silly, Fierce, Happy, Heaven, Gather, Home, Grow, Friend, Bestie and the list goes on and on.  No need to stick with one word, you can have two - U Rock, Adore U, My Love.

One of the things we share when we share a handmade card, is kindness.  What better way to share that kindness than to put the exact word you mean on the front of the card.  Nothing like getting right to the point! The Alphabet collage is a card in and of itself but the words you can make with the letters that fall out, are priceless.  You can use the 5 x 7 Sentiment Frame or go naked and simply make up your own sentiment.

As soon as I saw this Die Set, I thought of a Teacher card. I guess because of the alphabet dies. But the amazing thing about this Die set is that you can create ANY words or sentiments that  you want. It can be made into a shabby card, or a clean and simple card or anything in between. So FUN!


My Project Today:

I simply die cut the large frame die using some dark blue cardstock and another using white cardstock. I then adhered the white frame behind the blue one slightly off center so the blue would have a white "shadow". I then die cut the letters out using light green, white and red cardstock. I then adhered the white "Thank You" onto a piece of black cardstock and adhered it to the bottom portion of the blue frame. I then added the green ABC letters to a piece of red cardstock and then adhered that to the top portion of the frame. Then the red TEACHER letters to the white banner. I then finished it off with some pearls, red ribbon and ruler ribbon.
