first anniversary card - raise the bar 6.



I'm not a big fan of box making but every so often I feel a card deserves a box and this one did, an envelope would have just squashed it flat. I made the square box using my diamond card craft folding board ( my second crafters companion one snapped, as did the first - seriously thinking of getting a Scor Pal - just can't decide between metric and imperial). I layered 2 panels embossed with swiss dots and then made a layered topper using various Spellbinders dies. The card is, suprise, suprise an easel card. Simple printed sentiment with layered nestabilities and patterned paper edged with Prima flowers and chiffon ribbon. The easel "ledge" is Fiskars threading water border punch with silver peel off.
Raise the Bar challenge 6 (see link on blog list) - is stamper no stamping. An easy
one for me as I often have no stamping on my cards!

Hi Minerva! This is just STUNNING! What an elegant card, and what a neat trivia that you rarely use stamping on your card! You are one talented crafter, as the cards you make are just so beautiful. Thank you for joining us at Raise The Bar this week!
