Sisters are Forever

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Milk Card. I stamped the Blossom Heart Stamp several times using Spun Sugar Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder (more on order). I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Spun Sugar using Cut n Dry Foam.

I popped the 'Sisters are Forever' sentiment inside the frame (both from the Justrite Forever Friends Stamp Set) and stamped using Jet Black Archival then embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Beaded Squares and inked through the die with Spun Sugar. I trimmed off all the 'beads' with my trimmer to make a square with rounded corners. I then cut another Beaded Square and again inked through the die with Spun Sugar. I left this one intact and layered the stamped one on top using 3d Foam Pads.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Cream Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Pink Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges and some Cream Pearls in the top left-hand corner.

Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Good morning Julia,
    What a sweet card, I am not crazy about pink, however this is very sweet and if I had a sister I know it would be a cherished card. Nice job!

  9. Hi Julia,
    What a beautiful card - I love the colours!
    I'd love to try the just rite stamp sets - note to self - 'add to end of wish list'.
    I like that die - another one for the wish list - it reminds me of the embellishments that has the pom pom sort of edge to it.
    Best wishes.
