Always & Forever

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card.

For the background, I simply ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I cut 2 borders out using the Spellbinders Asian Accents die set. I removed them from the die and inked along the edge with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

I stamped the floral heart from the Creative Expressions Wedding Bliss Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Lake Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Asian Motifs and inked through the die with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Lake Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Blossom 5 and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into Perfect Medium, added some Arctic Lake Lustre, tapped off the excess and heat set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.



  1. Morning Julia,
    I see your passion for Asian Motifs is still going strong, but i have to agree it is a very useful set.
    Love the whole composition of this card.

    Beautiful card today. I love those asian dies and I must get mine out and have a play with them. I think I prefer the plainer dies to the really fancy ones that are available now
