You go Girl

Hi Bloggers.

Another girly card today - very simple.

For the background, I popped some Coconut White Card with the Creative Expressions Floral Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern and then edged it with Mustard Seed Distress Ink.

I stamped the image from the Fashionista : A Day Shopping 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 Floral Ovals. I inked through the die with Mustard Seed Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Banners and inked through the die with Mustard Seed.

I tied a messy bow with 3 lengths of Chalk White American Seam Binding. I spritzed it with water, scrunched it and dried it with my heat tool. I threaded some Baker's Twine through a button and tied a bow. I added it to my ribbon bow.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
