You mean the world to me

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The red is not so bright in real life!

For the background, I spread some Apple Red Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste through the Criss Cross Mask onto Black Card and put aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment from the True Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Captivating Squares die and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Classic Squares Small die out of red card.

I stamped the Baroque Frame using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Grand Square die and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Black Silky Crush Ribbon and added a Red Grosgrain Rose.

Once the texture paste was dry, I assembled the card as shown adding a Black 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
