You are a Treasured Friend

Hi Bloggers.

A small-ish card today -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Flourish Embossing Folder. I popped a little Pearl Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint onto my Craft Sheet and picked some up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam. I rubbed it over the embossed surface. I then inked around the edges with Pink Sherbet Adirondack Dye Ink.

I masked off the flowers in the Cala Lily Trio Stamp and inked the frame up with Jet Black Archival, removed the mask, stamped and added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped the sentiment from the True Thoughts Stamp Set in the centre of the frame, again using Jet Black Archival, added Clear Powder and heat set the lot. I coloured the frame in using Pastel Pink from the Cosmic Shimmer Pastels Watercolour Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Pink Sherbet Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Enchanted Labels 28 die out of Pink Card.

I stamped the Anenome Planter Stamp using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut the little flowers out, coloured them with Pastel Pink Watercolour and added a 3mm White Pearl to the centres. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using the Cricut Explore.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
