Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card with the Couture Creations Paradise Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I spread some CS Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste through the Ink the Net Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut 4 squares out using Sue Wilson's Double Pieced Squares. I also cut 4 squares out of Icicle Pearl Card using Sue's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I cut the largest die and the 'Hello' from the Justrite Hello Decorative Oval Frame Dies out of Coconut White Card. I pressed them into Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Snowcap CS Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder.

I cut a die from the Justrite Vintage Labels Eleven Dies out of Icicle Pearl Card and another die from the Hello Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I stacked all the die cuts using Mounting Cushion and added some CS Polar White Twinkles around the edges of the Vintage Labels Eleven Die Cut.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of Mini Pearl Swirls, some 8mm White Pearls and some more Polar White Twinkles around the edges of the embossed background. I also pierced around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
