Spread Your Wings

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the Justrite Iron Swirls Background onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut 2 Spellbinders Captivating Squares from the stamped background.

I stamped the Justrite Fleur Twist Background onto Coconut White Card using Black Perfect Medium and embossed with the Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut 2 Spellbinders Luscious Labels One from the stamped background.

I cut 4 Spellbinders Marvelous Squares out of Black Card.

I stamped the butterfly image from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with lapis Pink Aurora. I cut just the centre section out using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large. I stamped the image again onto black card, using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lapis Pink Aurora. I cut it out using one of the dies from Sue's Decorative Frames Die Set.

I tied a bow using Rose Satin Edged Organza and added a Black Sparkler.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  11. Love it I only have the Marvelous Squares dies Ireally must get some of the other Square sets because I've loved how you've used squares as a feature I love how you've off set the focal point circle too Take off the bow (and perhaps change the colour) and you've got a great male card too
