Thanks So Much

Hi Bloggers.

An apt sentiment for my post today as I would really like to thank you for all you emails into the shows yesterday and your kind comments here on the blog - it is much appreciated.

This card was one of the demos from yesterday and it's one of my favourite cards.

For the background, I used a piece of Coconut White Card which I popped inside the Spellbinders Paisley M-Bossabilities Folder with a little hanging over the edge as I did not want to emboss all of it. I ran it through the Grand Calibur and then inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I cut a border out of peach card using the Moroccan Accents border die and added it to the plain section of my background. I ran a piece of 6mm Super Sticky Tape along the edge of the border and ruffled some American Seam Binding in Blue White along it.

I cut a Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge out of peach card. At the emboss stage I added the Floral Vines Mask. I inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Dried Marigold. I cut a frame out using Spellbinders Fancy Weave and glued it on top of the sentiment panel using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I cut the smallest and the middle size of the Spellbinders Cut Fold & Tuck Roundabout dies out of Foundations Dot & Dash Paper. For the middle size one I had the stripey side face up and for the smallest size one I had the dots side up. I inked around the edges a bit with Dried Marigold after I had removed the paper from the dies. I folded and tucked and mounted the smaller one on top of the larger one and added an 8mm White Pearl.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Creative Expressions Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White.

Thanks for stopping by.
