True Friendship

Hi Bloggers.

Kim Dellow is doing some shows for Creative Expressions today at 4pm and 7pm. Be sure to tune in - she has lots of stamps on the shows. Do check the schedule though as times change. Talking of which, sadly my shows on 1st March have been cancelled.

A simple card today from my last set of shows. Change the sentiment and/or the colours and it can be used for any occasion.

So, the background is simply a piece of Milk Card,which is wider than the Couture Creations Pastorale Embossing Folder, run through the Grand Calibur. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Classic Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28. I cut a slightly larger Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 out of black card.

I tied a bow using Black/Ivory Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and added a flower made using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom 4.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges and a few dots top and bottom on both sides of the background.

In case you missed it yesterday, please scroll down to the post below this one for details of new stock in my Amazon Store.

Thanks for stopping by,
