Order of Service

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Sue's Paper Grouting Technique. I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Large Velvet Tea Lights Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I then spread some Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Dawn Texture Paste over the surface and put aside to dry. It doesn't take long to dry as the layer of paste is very thin.

I cut the Couture Creations Love Abounds Die out of Milk Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Bold Flourish Wedding Stationery Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4.

I made a couple of flowers out of Milk Card using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 4. I cut some leaves out of Milk Card using Sue's Curled Vines Dies Set and out of Coconut White Card using Couture Creations Vintage Branch Die.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls.

Thanks for stopping by.
