Hang in there

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I popped some Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I peeled the other side of the backing off. I dusted the More Squares Mask with my Anti Static Bag and popped it dusted side down onto the adhesive. I rubbed Dark Bronze Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter into the exposed adhesive. I made sure all the glitter was removed from the mask and removed it from the adhesive. I then rubbed Sahara Gold Polished Silk Glitter into the newly exposed adhesive.

I popped some Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue onto my Craft Sheet. I applied it to the Pickle Stamp using Cut n Dry Foam and stamped onto Coconut White Card. Once stamped the glue needs to be clear before anything is added to it so I cleaned my stamp. I then added Sahara Gold Polished Silk Glitter to the Pickle image. I cut it out using Spellbinders Petite Scalloped Circles Small and inked through the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Paws-itively Great Stamp Set using Flake & Glitter Glue and once the glue was clear added Sahara Gold Polished Silk Glitter. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.

I cut the border die and made a bow with side tails from Coconut White Card using Sue's Mosaic 3D Bow Die Set inking around the edges of the Die Cuts with Vintage Photo prior to assembly.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Choco Brown PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
