My 1st Graphic 45 easel card

Good morning everyone hope your all enjoying the holidays i am and so far no illness fingers crossed anyway lol .
I have been creating again even thou most of you would have already seen this card on you tube and your paper pantry I'm going to put it on here cos I'm so proud of my self for using the little amount of graphic 45 i have lol.
I was so scared to use it because its so hard to get over here in the UK either that or I'm not looking in the right places which is about right for me lol.
This is my card, i was given some graphic 45 papers from a lovely woman in the states that i did a swap with and she sent me some gorgeous papers which i was hording and didn't want to use them because then they'd be all gone lol i no i no but I'm very protective of my craft stash when my kids go through my draws looking for paper and pens and stickers i could cry lol.

My version of the webster pages trim and Wow i just love it !!!

Oh my gosh i am so so so pleased with this trim i was just sitting around looking for something new to create when i came across the Webster's pages website
And i was looking for some of the Bloomers trim but it was not available over in the UK so i checked out eBay and one of the sellers wanted £21.86 just to ship and that was only for a yard of one colour and i don't have that kind of money just for one item.
So i looked up the trim and had a good look at it and tried to figure out how they made it well this is what i came up with.
I used white cotton for the first one i tried and i was so pleased with how it turned out then i was taking my washing out my washing machine and stood there for what felt like 10 Min's looking at a pillow case lol yes that is what the cream trim is made of and that turned out so much better then the white as it frayed lovely.

This is the cream one hung over my graphic 45 easel card i made isn't it just stunning hanging there in all its glory lol
I'm sorry if I'm blowing my own trumpet but i am so pleased with this accomplishment and i just cant believe how easy it was.

This is the white version what do you think, I laid in bed last night and made it in two more colours to one in peach and one in pink and oh the peach is very pretty.
I am so overwhelmed with the reaction it got on my you tube channel
so many comments and I'd like to thank you all so very much they were all so very kind and a tutorial will be coming later on today woo hoo.
Take care and happy crafting x
