Smiles

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Using up some stamped and cut out flowers from my demo bits box with this one. The pile doesn't seem to be getting any smaller!

Simple card to make. The background is a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Star Swirls Embossing Folder.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Flourished Frame Die Set out of Blush Card. I cut the 2 largest dies together out of Coconut White Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Live Laugh Love Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed using CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using another die from the same set and cut the next sized die out of Blush Card.

The flowers are left over from a demo I didn't get to finish on Hochanda. They're from the Justrite Birthday Florals Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Stamp Set, stamped onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium, embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Powder and cut out using scissors.


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

The winner of the card from Freebie Friday on 1st January is ....................
