You're Special to Me

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. It isn't a repeating pattern but it's so busy that you don't notice the join. I inked around the edges with Scarlet Woman Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut the Couture Creations Moulin Rouge Die out of Black Card. I rubbed Deep Red Gilding Wax over the die cut and put aside to dry for a few minutes. I cut the smallest corner die in the Couture Creations Malvoisie Corners Die Set out of Black Card 4 times and rubbed Deep Red Gilding Wax over them. Once all the pieces were dry, I buffed them up using a dry wet wipe.

I snipped the centre out of the Moulin Rouge Die Set and used it as one of my mats for my sentiment.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the smallest die in the Couture Creations Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set and inked through the die with Scarlet Woman Colour Cloud. I cut the middle die in the Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set out of Black Card. I cut the largest die out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Scarlet Woman. I used only the inner die cut for this project and kept the fancy frame for another project.

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

  16. Don't some of the gilding waxes on black card give spectacular results? That is certainly the case here. Beautiful card.

  17. Now don't you think that the 'Moulin Rouge' die and scarlet woman colour cloud were just made to go together! They just work perfectly, the Gilding Wax just adds that little finishing touch!
    Thank you Julia,

    Those colours are stunning! I must try a round die in the centre of a card like that.
