Friends Fill Your Life

Hi Bloggers.

Another card with an Autumnal feel today.

For the background, I spritzed through the Leaves Mask with Cosmic Shimmer Tarnished Gold Vintage Mister. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set using Coffee Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics A and inked through the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I cut some leaves out of handmade paper using the Spellbinders Little Leaf Sets Die Set. I tied a messy bow using 2 lengths of American Seam Binding in London Tan. I threaded some Baker's Twine from the Primary Set through a button from my stash and tied a bow. I added it to my American Seam Binding Bow using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I cut the largest of the Fancy Weave Dies out of brown card and snipped one side of it off to use as a border. I added a couple of Art Deco Metal Corners securing with Cosmic Shimmer Glue.

I finished the card off with some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Choco Brown.

Thanks for stopping by.
