Hello My Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm off the Daisy's Jewels and Crafts in Coventry (details in left hand side bar). I'll be demoing between 1pm and 3pm. If you're in the area, please stop by and say hello.

Today's card is one I've made for the shows tomorrow. It's not really a good representation of what's on the show - bit of a tease really.

For the background,I ran a piece of Coconut White card through the Grand Calibur with the Spellbinders Regal M-Bossabilities Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Falling Leaves Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Labels 24. I made a frame using the 2 Labels 24 dies that were either side of the one used to cut out the sentiment. At the emboss stage I added the Elegance M-Bossabilities Folder. I cut the largest of the Fancy Postage Edge Dies and at the emboss stage added the other side of the Elegance Folder. I cut the largest of the Fancy Ribbon Threader Dies and at the emboss stage added the Elegance Mask from That Special Touch. I threaded some Blue White American Seam Binding through it.

I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

I made a flower using the Bitty Blossoms die set. I cut some leaves using the same die set and inked through the die with Perfect Medium using Cut n Dry Foam. I removed the card from the die and added some Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder and heat set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Pearl Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Silver Lustre around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
