Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Off to Creative Expressions HQ today to run 3 workshops with Sue Wilson's new dies. Should be fun!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distess Ink.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Birthday Florals Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Burnt Red, Burnt Marigold and Mustard Green Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Golden Winter Mica Spray Set. I cut if out using Sue's Saltzburg Die Set. I cut the largest die from the Justrite Vintage Labels 8 Die Set out of Rich Red Card.

I cut one of Sue's Auvergne Dies our of Milk Card and then the largest die in the set out of Rich Red Card.


I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9 and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany. I cut the largest Vintage Labels 9 Die out of Rich Red Card.

I cut a Couture Creations Simplicity Border out of Rich Red Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Ivory PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by,

Julia.
