Celebrate with Style

Hi Bloggers.

A very simple card today made using the Fashionista : A Day Shopping Stamp Set.

For the background, I ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Ambrosia Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped Sadie using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured her in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks and then cut her out using Spellbinders Lacy Ovals. I inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I threaded some Mauve Rose American Seam Binding through the holes in the die cut and tied a bow. I added one of the new Dazzlers to the centre (coming soon!).

I stamped the sentiment from the Fashionista : Best Friends Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I assembled the card ash shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Purple Violet around the edges. I also added a 5mm White Pearl to each corner.

Thanks for stopping by.
