On Your Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Samuel Taylors Roseville Street Leeds today 10am till 4pm. Hope you can join me if you're in the area.

I had a horrible journey up to Leeds yesterday. The M1 was awful - heavy traffic, 50 mile restricted speed limit for miles and miles plus heavy rain most of the way which meant poor visibility and I had to concentrate extra hard just to see where I was going! Yuk! Hope it's a better journey home 😬

Phill Martin has shows on Create & Craft today at 11 snd 4 (I think) with part 2 of his Chic Collection. I have some of the products in my Store - just click on the Shop link in the top menu of this blog.

Here's today's card -

I cut Sue Wilson's Canadian Background (both dies) out of Coconut White Card. I glued it to a piece of Milk Card.

I popped the deboss die from Sue's Classic Adorned Squares Noble Die Set  onto a piece of Milk Card and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the emboss sandwich. I removed the die and cut the 2 cutting dies either side of it from the same die set. I cut the largest die from Sue's Ornate Pierced Squares Noble Die Set out of Coconut White Card and glued the 2 die cuts together. I then reset the inner die in the frame and ran through the Grand Calibur to cut through the Coconut White Card.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Flower Hearts Elements Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the inner die from the Tag set in Sue's Canadian Border, Corner & Tag Die Set and inked through the die with Antique Linen Distress Ink. I cut the outer tag die out of Milk Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 3mm Cream Pearls to the background and some 8mm Cream Pearls to the corners.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  14. Hi Julia. I bought the Canadian background yesterday. Can't wait to use it now I have seen your lovely card. I feel your pain about the M1. I usually try to avoid it on a Friday and glad I did so yesterday, although I was going the opposite way to you. Have fun at your demo day. SueL x

  23. Beautiful card Julia,, love the neutral colour.

    Hope you have a safe journey back, they do say that if you wear sun glasses whilst driving in heavy rain you are supposed to see more clearly, not sure whether it works as I have never tried it, sounds bizarre but you never know lol!

    Love & hugs
