Before I show today's card, I'd like to answer a question from yesterday. Norah asked if I decide on the size of my background first or decide after I have my images and die cuts ready. Well, it depends. Usually, I will get my images, die cuts, ribbon, etc ready, lay them out on my craft sheet and measure to decide my background size. Sometimes I have to adjust it to fit in with the size of the embossing folder I want to use. Sometimes, I want to use a specific mask or folder that simply does not lend itself to being extended so in that case I set my background size first and then choose my toppers accordingly.
Here's today's card -
Wrought Iron Corner in each corner and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Marine Sea Lustre Embossing Powder (finally back in stock!). I then popped it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Flint Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Cloudy Blue Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.
Couture Creations Great Almanzo Embossing Folder. I inked through the die with Cloudy Blue.
I stamped the sentiment that comes with the Lacy Heart Stamp using Perfect Medium and added Marine Sea Lustre. I did not heat set at this stage. I then stamped the Lacy Heart stamp around it (I cut out the rubber from the centre of the heart so I could see through to position), again using Perfect Medium, added Marine Sea Lustre and heat set the lot. I cut the frame out using scissors.
White Silky Crush Ribbon. I pressed a Fancy Pearl Embellishment
into a Perfect Medium Pad, sprinkled with Marine Sea Lustre, tapped off the excess and heat set.
Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Golden Pearl around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
