Of Corsets Your Birthday Again!

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing this card -

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Vintage Lingerie Stamp Set using Plum Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut the image out with scissors.

I cut a Spellbinders Labels Nineteen out of burgundy card. At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Houndstooth Embossing Folder. The Grand Calibur sandwich you need for this is base plate, approx 15 sheets copy paper (or a few sheets of card), embossing folder, die with card in it with cutting edge FACE UP - DO NOT CLOSE the folder, tan mat, Creative Expressions Embossing Plate.

I cut 4 Damask Motifs out of milk card and attached them at the back of the Labels Nineteen die cut. I cut a couple of Elegant Posts out of black card. I trimmed off the long bit from each and then used the swirly bits to 'hold hands' with the Damask Motifs. I added this to some pretty polka dot backing paper from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found.

I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set and cut it our using Ribbon Tags Trio Three. I threaded some Black Silky Crush Ribbon through it and secured it to the back of my card.

I assembled the card as shown and added some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edge.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
