Be Mine

Hi Bloggers.

I haven't heard from Granny Sue, winner of the Just a Note Card, so if you're reading this please email me at with your address so I can pop it in the post to you. If I haven't heard from Granny Sue by end of Friday then I'll draw another winner on Saturday morning.

White card today with just a little colour from embossing powder.

The background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Walrus & Carpenter Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Hearts Entwined Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder from the Pinks & Purples Set. I then stamped the frame around it (cut the excess rubber out of the centre of your stamp) and embossed again. I cut out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 22. I cut the next size up of Decorative Labels 22, turned it and threaded some White Silky Crush Ribbon through the slots either side.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Matting Basics A out and also the next size down. With the latter I added the Couture Creations Damask Folder at the emboss stage.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of the Silky Crush Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into the Perfect Medium Ink Pad and added some of the Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I tapped off the excess and heat set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
