Hello my Friend - Part 2

Hi Bloggers.

This is another card made using the Creative Expressions Falling Leaves Stamp Set.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Milk Card with my Anti-Static Bag and then randomly stamped one of the leaves from the set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Dark Bronze Lustre Embossing Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics & Darks set. I brushed away the excess Mica with a dry wet-wipe. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the A4 Autumn Leaves Mask and inked around the edges with Raisin Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I dusted a piece of Burgundy Card with my Anti Static Bag and stamped the large tree from the stamp set using Perfect Medium. I embossed with the Dark Bronze Lustre Powder and wiped away the excess mica. I mounted it on to a piece of Black Card.

I dusted another piece of Burgundy Card with my Anti Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Dark Bronze Lustre Powder. I cut it out using a Spellbinders Fancy Ribbon Threader die. I threaded some Black American Seam Binding through the slits in the die cut and secured at the back.

I tied a bow using the Burgundy/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and added a Black Dazzler to the centre.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
