Triple Gemini Frame

The lastest release back in April of Sue Wilsons dies included a new range of Gemini dies, this time called Triple Gemini dies. In the Centaurus die used on the card today, there are 5 dies in the set making it more versatile than ever. I have cut the main shape out from THE most gorgeous new Pearl Foundation card in Icicle and then using just two of the dies cut a background shape from the Duck Egg Blue foundation card to show through the lattice area.
The new Pearl foundation card has to be one of the best pearl card I have ever used. It is often very difficult to get a good cut with intricate dies from normal pearlised card. It has a coating, almost plastic, that often proves difficult to cut through. No problems like that now, and there are currently 10 new colours to choose from. You can find them here Maximumcrafts Pearl Foundation card
Another new product used on this card is the coloured Micro glass beads, here in Snow White, as the centre of the Blossom flower stamps which were stamped with Distress Ink Stormy Sky directly onto the Duck Egg cardstock and cut with the Camelia die set.

  1. This card is truly lovely Maxine. I love the Duck Egg Blue color and can't wait to try the new pearl foundation card. If I might ask, what did you use to adhere your micro beads to the card? Simply glorious.
