Happy Birthday & Many More

Hi Bloggers.

Glad you all liked yesterday's card. It wasn't actually a White on White card as I used Milk Card (pale Cream) and the embossing powder was a kind of pale grey on the Milk Card as opposed to pale blue on White Card. Sorry it didn't show up very well.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I just stamped the Wrought Iron Corner in each corner using Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then inked around the edges with Stormy Sky using Cut n Dry Foam.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Beaded Squares and inked through the die with Stormy Sky. I cut a Wonky Rectangle out of Cobalt Card and at the emboss stage I added the Couture Creations Super Powder Puff Embossing Folder. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Forever Friends Stamp Set and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a smaller Beaded Squares die and again inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I assembled the card as shown adding a White Pearl to each corner and some faux stitching with a blue fineliner for a change!

A simple card, suitable for any occasion with a change of sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by.
