To Wish You a Wonderful Day

Hi Bloggers.

I'm sharing this card today which is made with the Creative Expressions Antique Dressforms Stamp Set. I've used a sentiment for the focal point rather than one of the images.

For the background I randomly stamped one of the dressforms in Sepia Archival Ink. I also stamped one of the phrases. I then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Lovingly Baroque Embossing Folder. I passed it through a second time to extend the pattern (it's really easy to line up). I then inked all over using Rusty Hinge Distress Ink and Cut & Dry Foam. I spritzed all over with the new Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist in Tarnished Gold. This is just gorgeous! I distressed the edges with my scissors and then sanded over the background to reveal some of the core. I finished off the background by going around the edges with the Rusty Hinge and Cut & Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Sepia Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I edged it with a little Rusty Hinge. I made a frame from 2 dies from the Spellbinders Labels Eight. When I popped it through to emboss, I added the Small Polka Dots Mask (keep the mask away from the cutting edge of the die). I inked with Rusty Hinge while still in the dies.

I cut some leaves using the Spellbinders Foliage die set. I made a flower using the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I tied a bow with 2 lengths of the Amber Brown Vintage Ribbon. I popped the flower on top and spritzed with the Tarnished Gold Vintage Mist.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Choco Brown.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
