Love

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started my randomly inking through the Doodle Squares Mask onto Milk Card using Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Then, with the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Scented Corner Stamp using Dusty Concord. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I rubbed Golden Lilac Gilding Wax all over the embossed surface.

I cut 2 borders out of Rich Plum Card using the Couture Creations Chandeliers Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Celebration Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Ornamental Rectangle Die and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I cut a Couture Creations Cappuccino Die out of Mauve Card and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. I cut a Couture Creations Elegant Motif Die out of Rich Plum Card.

I tied a bow using Purple/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and added an Ivory Organza Ribbon Rose.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  14. Julia this card has given me an idea or two for a similiar version in claret and blue for a football supporter of a certain team - bow will therefore be replaced with a hammer.

  20. Hi Julia

    These dies are a little bold for my liking but the colours you've used are lovely.

    Many thanks for my order reaching me yesterday a day after I ordered it. Granted the parcel didn't have to come far to Suffolk but it was speedy service all the same. Looking forward to using my first A4 embossing folder in my 'new' Grand Calibur!
