Wishing You Happiness

Hi Bloggers.

Here's another of my fave cards from the shows last Sunday. I really do like the Spellbinders Card Creator dies - so easy to make lovely cards with.

For the background, I ran the Spellbinders Ornamental Iron M-Bossabilities Folder through the Grand Calibur with some Milk Card. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then inked around the edges with Dried Marigold Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I have lots and lots of packs of handmade paper and so I decided to use some orangey/autumny colours up on this card. I cut the largest of the Polka Dots and the Fancy Postage edge dies. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Button Florals Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the Fancy Postage Edge dies and inked through it with Dried Marigold.

I made 2 flowers out of the handmade paper using the technique in Sue's Tutorial here. I cut some leaves out of some autumn shades of handmade paper using the Spellbinders Little Leaf Sets die set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Self Adhesive Pearls in 8mm Cream and 5mm Cream in the corners of the background and the large Fancy Postage Edge die cut. I also added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
