Happy Birthday

Hi Bloggers.

I have now got Sue's new Embossing Folders in stock plus the Project Book Volume 3 and some re-stocks of some of the Finishing Touches Collection in Sue's Die Range. For details, please see this post.

Here's today's card -

For the main background on this one, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with Sue's Quilted Flower Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord and wrapped a piece of White Satin Edged Organza around the centre.

I stamped the Justrite Lace Oval Frame Background using Perfect Medium. I dusted Tropic Blue, Golden Malachite and Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set over the frame. I popped it onto a black mat.

I stamped the single rose from the Floral Spray Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using the the Violet Frost and Golden Malachite Mica Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Opulent Ovals and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut a black mat out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Earthenware Vase using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Organza and added a Lavender Dazzler and a couple of Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

    Have a lovely weekend!
    Love Myra
