On Your Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

Today I have shows on Create & Craft at 2pm (with Dean) and 7pm (with Dawn). Hope you can join me and perhaps email in to the studio if you have time.

Today's card is a very simple one but I think it shows off the Zentangled Flower and Arctic Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder really well.

For the background, I ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Petal Pleasures Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I wrapped some Cream Silky Crush Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the Zentangled Flower using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Arctic Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I stamped the flower head again. I cut both the whole flower and the flower head out using scissors. Then (an idea I borrowed from  Sam Poole) I curled the petals and glued the heads together off-setting them slightly.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Message Pre Cut Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Arctic Pearl Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge and also cut the largest die from the same die set.

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

Please scroll down to the previous post if you're interested in stock updates in my Amazon Store.

Hope to see you later.

Thanks for stopping by.

  31. Hi Julia, what a beautiful card. At first I could not see the embossing in the middle, I had to have a closer look! I do love the flower, I'm thinking one for the long, long list. Watched the show with Dean, what is he like dropping all your bits like that, pardon the pun. It was so funny. Loved the demo and looking forward to the next show, if there is anything left for you to play with! I shall be watching intently. Crafty hugs Debbie R xx

  35. Good morning Julia,
    i love your card today as it shows up all that you have done subtly to perfection. I know that these types of card are my favourite because of the single colour that is enhanced by the different techniques. Thank you for showing us your skill at creating things of beauty,
    Love and crafty hugs
