More Zipper Roses!

I just love these zipper roses!  Aren't they fun and funky?  Just the kind of thing that makes you look twice because you aren't quite sure what you have just seen!  That is my kind of embellishment.  Three is probably a bit of over kill,  but once in a while, you're allowed to just splurge on something fun for your hobby, right!  Behind the zipper roses, I used some of the new sulphur blue vintage ribbon with the chalk white seam binding and the red Bakers twine for impact.  Just a simple layout sketch, but I love the frilly little edgeablility border, it just makes it so much more interesting.  I cut the heart square out of the same decorative paper as the bottom of the card and topped it with a couple of smaller label shaped dies for my focal sentiment.  I added a pearl swirl to the top corner and Cosmic Shimmer white pearl PVA glue to create my own faux pearls all the way around the edge to frame and finish the card.  Have I told you that I love polka dots (you wouldn't have guessed, huh?! LOL)  All for now, Sue x

Hello Sue !
I'm still considering the Zipper Rose..fine if you're giving a card ,but I'm not sure about postage ? But...I love the Red, White, and Blue.
I think the Edgeability Borders are a plus to the other Dies. Oh! dear more Spellbinder addictions
lol
love Marg

Fiona said...

I second Marg's comments. Most of my cards have to get posted so I'm always on the lookout for 3D looks from 2d-ish things. All ideas welcome!
