A Real Class Act

Hi Bloggers.

A girly card today.

For the background, I spritzed some Blue Lace Misting Ink from the Breeze Blush Set over some Coconut White Card. I then used the Eyelet Lace Mask and inked through with Stormy Sky Distress Ink moving it around so that the whole area was covered.

I stamped the image from the Stylish Ladies Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I also used some Pearl Shine from the Metallics Set for the necklace. I cut the image out using Spellbinders Card Creator Fancy Postage Edge and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Matting Basics and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I tied a bow with some of the Light Blue Crochet Ribbon that was on the show and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Pearl Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Some of the samples from the Stylish Ladies Stamp Set we made earlier this year. You can find the blog posts for them herehere and here.

Thanks for stopping by.
