If I had a flower

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Nuevo Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I cut the largest of the Spellbinders Fancy Postage Edge Dies and at the emboss stage I added the Daisy Chain Mask which had been inked with Perfect Medium. I carefully removed the card from the die, added Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder and heat set. I cut the satin border off both sides of some White Satin Edged Organza and threaded it through the holes in the die cut.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Posy Florals 1 Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Tropic Pearl Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 25.

I tied a bow using White Satin Edged Organza, added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment and a couple of White Decorative Stick Pins.

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

I think that perhaps tomorrow it might be ok for me to give you a sneaky peak from Tuesday's Pick of the Day.

Thanks for stopping by.

    A stunning looking card, love the ribbon through the die really sets it off. Unfortunately cannot read what is on the sentiment possibly because of the shine on the lustre but love the layout all the same

  25. Good afternoon Julia,
    White cards ALWAYS draw my eye as i think they always look exquiste and this one is no exception. It is a beautiful card in its entirety as i could not pick out my favourite piece.
    Hope you are having a good day
