Today I'm going all red, white & blue with Ethel and Murray. Neither of them look very happy in this image!
For the background I popped some white card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Cultivated Embossing Folder. I put it through a second time to extend the pattern. I inked all over with Barn Door Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Wrinkles Don't Hurt Stamp Set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured the image in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large and inked around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam while still in the die. I cut a mat out of cobalt card using Spellbinders Eyelet Squares.
I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Cobalt Archival and embossed with the clear powder. I inked around the edges with Faded Jeans and mounted it on to some cobalt card.
I cut a 1" strip of cobalt card and cut a pattern in it using the Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Postage Stamp. I glued a strip of red card behind it. I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Royal Blue American Seam Binding and added a Playhouse Posie and button to the centre. I added a couple of Playhouse Pins to the back of the bow.
I finished the card off by piercing around the edges with my Tim Holtz Design Ruler.
Thanks for stopping by.
