Hearts & Minds Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the floral corner stamp from the Justrite Sympathy Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set in 3 corners of a piece of Milk Card using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then ran it though the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked the very edges with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9.

I stamped the floral frame from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 8.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Milk Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set and made a couple of flowers out of Black Crochet Ribbon.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
