You're Always in Style

Hi Bloggers.

Back from a great day in Bristol yesterday - I met a lovely group of ladies.

Here's today's card - simple but effective!

I started by stamping the border that comes on the Creative Expressions Bags of Style Stamp Set along the bottom of a piece of Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Ruby Lapis Lustre Embossing Powder. I then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Large Hepburn Embossing Folder. I put the card in the folder so that the whole white area was covered but not the border. I inked around the edge of the background with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I wrapped some White Crochet Ribbon around the card to hide the line from the edge of the folder.

I stamped the image using Perfect Medium and embossed with Ruby Lapis Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Opulant Ovals and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the sentiment, again using Perfect Medium and Ruby Lapis Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fleur de Lys Rectangles and inked through the die again with Victorian Velvet.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
