Thank You

Hi Bloggers.

I'm at MSA Crafts in Cradley Heath today doing demos this morning. If you're in the area, please stop by.

Here's today's card -

The background is simply a piece of Milk Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Joe's Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I added some Black Duchess Guipure Lace down the right hand side  securing with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the Thank You stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects.

I cut a Heartfelt Creations Raindrops on Roses die out of black card.

I made a flower using Spellbinders Aster Flower Topper and added some Black Soot Distress Stickles to the centre.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Crystal Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  10. Morning Julia, What a beautiful 'Thank You' card, loving the monochrome type colours (well, milk is sort of white haha). You have used the gorgeous lace and the fabulous raindrops on roses die, your compilation is really pretty, and I adore the aster flowers too.
    Have a great time at your demo day.
    Lots of love from Patricia xx

  14. Hi Julia. Love today's card. The momochrome colours work so well with the stamp, and I agree with mabex, it reminds me of Monks illustrating the front pages in Bibles too. I hope you have a great day at MSA Crafts today. I do wish that you would come to the Oxford area. There are no big shows or demos this far south west. Everyone seems to stop at the NEC : ( Anyway, anyone that gets to see you today is very lucky. Take care.
