You're Simply the Best

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I wouldn't normally put silver, pink and ivory together but it seemed to work on this card.

Hard to see, I know, but for the background I stamped the Justrite Dotted Fronds Background using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink several times onto Milk Card.

I wrapped some Cream Guipure Duchess Lace around both sides, securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inkd through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the Delicate Frame, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Silver Detail Powder. I cut it out using another Spellbinders Pearl Effects Die and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

 I made some flowers using Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper and added some Pewter Distress Stickles to the centres.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Vintage Pink Pearlescent PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  3. Hello Julia, this card is stunning, love the stamped focal image, but I think it is the flowers atop the lace, that makes this card amazing, I think the colours work very well. Bx

  25. Hi Julia
    The colours seem to go very well together. Love the delicate frame stamp used. I love the asters but seeing as I already have some flowers dies, I can't really justify buying these as well. Must get mine out and have a play.
