It's a Girl Thing!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spritzed a piece of Milk Card with Cosmic Shimmer Marigold Vintage Mister. I inked through the Eyelet Lace Mask with Paris Trunk Poppy Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I moved the mask around the card so that whole area was covered.

I cut a piece of rust card and popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Intrinsic Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Handbags Galore Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using the Poppy ink and Pale Gold Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25 and inked through the die with Poppy.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using a very un-fancy die from the Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two die set and inked through the die with Poppy.

I ruffled some American Seam Binding in London Tan down the length of the card and tied a bow using 2 lengths of it. I added a Light Brown Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Swirls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Olympic Gold around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia, This is a lovely card today, the poppy ink complements beautifully the tan card, and balances the light and dark. I love the ruffled ribbon, I have yet to try this technique.
