So Glad You're my Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran some Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Wild Poinsettia Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design - this is a repeating pattern so very easy to line up. I edged with Forest Moss Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Antique Dressform using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lapis Pink Aurora Embossing Powder. Yes, you read it right - Lapis Pink Aurora is green when used on black card or when used with black ink - cool, eh? I cut it out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals and inked through the die with Forest Moss.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Message Precut Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Lapis Pink Aurora. I cut it out using Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles and inked through the die with Forest Moss.

I made a flower following Sue's Tutorial - I stamped the flowers with the Beaded Flourish stamp with Forest Moss Distress Ink prior to cutting. The leaves are cut using Hearfelt Creations Ornamental Add On dies.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to 3 of the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  26. Great card Julia.
    I love that the lapis pink aurora embossing powder is green using black ink it's really cool! The self inked and handmade flower is so pretty, the leaves flourishes die cut look good too. I've not seen the Spellbinders romantic rectangles I do like this little one you have used for the sentiment. I've not seen the floral ovals spellbinder dies either so thank you! Two more to add to my long wish list! I'm not sure about manniquins I'm sure my mum would like a card with this stamped manniquin on but I find it a hit creepy it's like a skeleton to me!
    The card is great though and I love that the wild poinsettia folder has been used in a non Christmas way. I look forward to your next inspirational card.
