Many thanks for your support yesterday and to those of you who emailed in to the studio. Today's card is a demo card from the 7pm show. I wanted to try and show that the image can be in the background and the sentiment the focal piece.
I started with a square piece of Coconut White card. I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Wrinkles Don't Hurt Stamp set randomly using Jet Black Archival. I then popped the piece into the Couture Creations Radiant Embossing Folder and ran it through the Grand Calibur. I put it through a second time to extend the pattern. I then inked all over with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut a frame out of black card using 2 dies from Spellbinders Labels Three die set. At the emboss stage I added the Creative Expressions Bark Embossing Folder.
I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Blue White American Seam Binding, spritzed it with water, scrunched it up and dried it with the heat gun. I made a flower out of black card using the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder (see how in this tutorial).
I finished the card off by adding some Creative Expressions Black Rhinestone Swirls and some faux stitching round the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
