Thanks

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by cutting the Couture Creations Coteaux Curls main die out of a piece of Coconut White Card. I cut the extra die in the set out of Black Card and glued it behind the bottom left corner, offsetting it slightly to form a shadow.

I ran a piece of Lilac Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Random Daisies Embossing Folder. I rubbed Vintage Plum Gilding Wax over the embossed design. I left it to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe. I added my frame to the background using 3D Foam.

I cut the Couture Creations Script Thanks Die out of Coconut White Card and again out of Black Card. I glued them together offsetting them to form a shadow.

I cut the Couture Creations Island Flower Border out of Black Card. I cut it down into individual flowers and used 3 of each size in 2 corners adding some 5mm White Pearls.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

I'll do the draw for the Giveaway Cards from last week later today - don't forget to pop back if you left a comment!

Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Morning Julia, another gorgeous card today, I really like the Coteaux curls - must get them, they really do set it off lovely.

    Had a great time at NEC yesterday and caught up with so many crafty friends as well as meeting up with lots of new ones, fantastic to meet John again and have a chat about his cards and things. Hopefully I will be meeting you again at next years Ally Pally.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx
