The Beauty of Life

Hi Bloggers.

A card from the November Pick of the Day today. I was going for a wall hanging feel on this one.

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Garden Lattice A4 M-Bossabilities Folder. I inked around the edges with Lettuce Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

For the top panel, I stamped a couple of flowers from the Creative Expressions Whimsical Floral Stamp Set using Lettuce and Oregano Adirondack Dye Ink Pads. I cut out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Lettuce.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. Again, I cut out using Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Lettuce.

For the bottom panel, I stamped another flower using lettuce and a gorgeous scroll from the same stamp set using Oregano. I cut out using Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Lettuce.

I joined the panels by running a piece of May Arts Two Tone Ribbon at the back. I added a loop at the bottom with a Creative Expressions Tassel and a bow at the top using 2 lengths of the ribbon. I added some dots of Creative Expressions Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
