Special Wishes For A Special Person

Hi Bloggers.

I'm heading up to Wolverhampton this morning for a day demoing at Domino Crafts - 10am till 4pm if you're in the area.

Here's today's card -

I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up one of the stamps from the Stamps to Die For Autumn Leaf Bouquets. I stamped it onto Coconut White Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I continued  re-'inking' and stamping until I had completed a border down the left-hand side of my card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped images. I added CS Autumn Leaves Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit.

I dusted my card in the bottom right-hand corner with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from Phill Martin's Butterfly Elegance Sentiments Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder and heat set.

I assembled the card as shown adding 3 x 5mm White Pearls, matting onto Black and Coconut White Card and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat

  19. Again you have proved that a simple design can be as effective or even more so that a complicated one. Lovely card.
