You Go Girl!

Hi Bloggers.

Happy Boxing Day. Hope you're enjoying your holidays. Also, hope you had some gifts like the ones on this card!

The background is made using the Couture Creations Cabaret Embossing Folder. I have inked over the embossed detail with Garnet Paris Trunk Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions If the Shoe Fits ... Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Garnet, Cherry Blossom and Lavender Organza Paris Trunk Dye Inks and some Violet Frost Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set and some Pearlescent Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I cut it out with scissors and went around the edges with a black marker pen to hide any white bits.

I cut a Spellbinders Labels 25 out of Coconut White Card. At the emboss stage I added the Eyelet Lace Mask. I inked though the die with Garnet ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out with a smaller labels 25 die and inked through the die with Garnet.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Swirls, a small bow made with 2 lengths of Rose Petal American Seam Binding, a Black Dazzler and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Pink around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
