Sneak Peak - Dream

Hi Blogger.

I had an email from a blog follower who told me that they didn't know I had a website. It hadn't occured to me that email followers wouldn't see my top menu so I'll put a link to my website at the end of every post. I'm not sure if they get the links on every product I highlight in the text which I have in stock, but it's there for whoever can see it.

As promised here's a sneak peek from Monday's show -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Stripes Embossing Folder.

I cut the border and the circle die cut out of Coconut White Card using the Couture Creations Frames n Frills Elissa Set. The border die has no cutting edge so you extend the length of the border to suit. I inked up both die cuts with Clear Perfect Medium and brushed Phill Martin's Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim Mica Powder over.

I cut the Couture Creations Everyday Essentials Die out of Cobalt Card.

I made some little flowers by cutting the border die out of White Felt 3 times. I ran a little Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue along the edge and rolled them up. I cut a couple of leaves out of Cobalt Card using Sue Wilson's Delicate Fronds Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges.

I'll have another sneak peek tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
