Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Curly Corner using Jet Black Archival in each corner of a square piece of Burgundy Card. The stamp is not symmetrical so, although the card is square, the design does not meet top and bottom and slightly overlaps on the sides.

I stamped the Vintage Corset using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Scarlet Flame and Marigold from the Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Shades Matt Drawing Ink Set. I cut it out using scissors and went around the edges with a Black Promarker to hide any white bits. I popped some 12mm Hi-Tack Tape on the back of the corset around the bottom edge. I cut a piece of Black Silky Crush Ribbon in half lengthways and ruffled it at the base of the corset as shown. I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Beaded Squares out of Coconut White card and inked through the die with Fired Brick Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Wrought Iron Corner using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Ribbon Tags Trio Three and inked through the die with Fired Brick. I cut both side off the die cut.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Berry Red  around the edges.

  29. Wow Julia today's card is very naughty but very nice! I love it. It is unusual to see one of your cards with no 'full' background stamping! I do like the border done as a frame. Thanks for the update on your shop, It is great to know when certain things you've been waiting for has come in, if that makes sense! Crafty hugs Debbie R xx
