Heartfelt Thanks

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Milk Card with the Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder.

I dusted another piece of Milk Card with my Anti Static Bag. I inked up the Spellbinders Diamond Opulence Texture Plate with Clear Perfect Medium using a Brayer. I popped it face up on my Spellbinders Platinum Base Plate, added my card dusted side down and ran through the machine with the emboss sandwich. I added CS Copper Kettle Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set. I trimmed the piece down into 3 panels and matted them onto Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ritz Labels. I cut the middle die in the Ritz Decorative Elements Die Set out of Black Card.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Black Satin Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Large Circle Pearl Diamante.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Black Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  3. Morning Julia,
    Lovely masculine card if the bow was removed in this colourway. If done in paler colours a great all occasions card.
    Happy bank holiday to all.
    Love and crafty hugs,
