With very warm wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Coconut White Card and the Spellbinders Decorative Applause 3d Embossing Folder. I cut the card to 6" x 6", spritzed the back of it with water and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Base Plate & Raspberry Plate. I then inked all over with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using a Smoothie.

I stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Chic Floral Birthday Verses onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the largest die in the Spellbinders Oval Majesty Die Set and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I cut a couple of flowers from Coconut White Card using Spellbinders Romantic Blooms Two, inking through the dies with Dusty Concord. I shaped them a little using a Paper Shaping Tool and a Moulding Mat. I cut some leaves out of Heather Card using the same die set.


I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

    Very pretty, that embossing folder is stunning. I don't normally like stylised flowers but these are really pretty. Lovely purple colour and the stamp is wonderful, a terrific card.

  40. Hi Julia,
    Lovely card. Dusty concord was one of the first distress inks in my collection, forgotten all about it. Your card proves it can look really pretty, doesn't have to be dark and grungy.
    Regards
