No greater feeling

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked all over using Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink. I then rubbed Deep Red Gilding Wax all over the embossed surface. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped the Argentine Tango Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer Lava Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Devine Eleoquence and inked through the die with Raisin Adirondack. I cut a Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B out of Black Card and glued it behind the Devine Eleoquence Die Cut.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Lava Black Aurora. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Seville Die Set and inked through the die with Raisin Adirondack.

I cut Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Raisin Ink. I added a Black Organza Ribbon Rose.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Circle Dazzler to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
