Forever Friends

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card from tomorrow's shows.

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Black Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Hyper Magical Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I cut 2 Spellbinders Wonky Rectangles out of Burgundy Card. At the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Forever Friends Cling Rubber Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then stamped the frame from the same stamp set, again using the Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I coloured the little hearts in using Scarlet Flame Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Ink from the Autumn Shades Set. I cut out using Spellbinders Beaded Squares. I had intended to leave the die cut un-inked but there was a dirty mark on it from my mat which wouldn't come off so, rather than bin it, I inked through the die with Black Soot Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White Silky Crush Ribbon. I cut a small Spellbinders Beaded Square out of Black Card and added a Red Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges. I also added some White Pearls in the right-hand corners.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

  1. Good morning Julia,
    You are such a clever crafter, how easy to hide a mark. This card is amazing and I look forward to the shows. I especially like that bubble look die. Nice job.
