Missing You

Hi Bloggers.

I don't think this card was shown on the last set of shows.

I used Milk Card. For the background, I randomly stamped one of the flourishes from the Newsprint Flourishes A6 Stamp Set using Tattered Rose Distress Ink. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Almanzo Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Tattered Rose using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Messages Pre Cut Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Red Salmon Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 9 and inked through the die with Tattered Rose. I cut the wavy die from the Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags & Accents die set and inked through the die with Tattered Rose. I also cut the largest of the Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge dies and again inked through the die with Tattered Rose.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Cream Silky Crush Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment into the Perfect Medium Pad, sprinkled with Red Salmon Lustre, tapped off the excess and heat set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  24. Morning Julia
    What a beautiful card absolutely super I love it, and the colour is just hinted so lovely.

  25. Hi Julia, Today's card is just beautiful. I'm not a pinky girl, but I'm loving the subtle colours. The background stamping is just stunning, it's not to obvious or in your face! I'm liking what you have done to the pearl embellishment to co-ordinate with the colour scheme. I think the "Newsprint Flourish" stamps will have to go on, my ever growing, crafty shopping list. Have a great day. Crafty hugs Debbie R xx
