Something a bit different today - a card I made for the Trade Show in February -
The image is from Heartfelt Creations and is from set HCPC3511 Melodious Songbird which come mounted on foam and cut out ready to use. I stamped it using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Mallow and Black Night from the Summer Fayre Set, Meadow Lime and Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set, Marigold and Umber from the Autumn Shades Set.
I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and inked through the die with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges from the Card Creator Series and inked through the die with Vintage Photo.
For the background, I used the Heartfelt Creations Burlap Background Stamp (HCPC3515). With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Burlap stamp using Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder
. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then edged with Vintage Photo using Cut n Dry Foam
I tied a bow using Brown/Ivory Grosgrain Ribbon
and added a Light Brown Dazzler
I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Dark Bronze
around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.

What a beautiful card to start a Monday morning. The words are fab. X
What a different style of card - but its great. This is a very generic stamp and would be good for either gender.
