There's only one like You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used Milk Card. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Squared Mask. I left the mask in place and inked through it with Fired Brick Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Classic Message Set using Perfect Medium  and added Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I stamped the Rose Trellis around the sentiment, again using Perfect Medium added Cosmic Shimmer Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder and heat set the lot. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Scarlet Flame from the Autumn Shades Set and Soft Moss from the Garden Twist Set. I cut it out using scissors.

I inked up the Justrite Floral Flourishes Background Stamp with Fired Brick Distress Ink. I popped a narrow panel of card on top of the stamp and rubbed gently. I removed it from the stamp and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I wrapped some Cream Crochet Ribbon around my background and added the panel I had just created.

I tied a bow using the Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Red Dazzler and a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm Cream Pearls to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Golden Green around the edges.

  25. Lovely card Julia and that floral flourish panel is fab.

  26. Hi Julia
    What a stunning card this is, it's so pretty and eye catching. The background you have made is great and really sets off the rose trellis focal point to the card. When I saw this card I thought you had sourced some particularly beautiful red and white ribbon to put over the crochet ribbon but was so surprised to read that it's card stamped rather wonderfully with a floral flourish stamp I believe. It's really stunning. I must try this way of making a thin stamped panel to put over my ribbon as it really catches the eye and sets the card off wonderfully. I love the red, I thought the brick red distress ink would be too intense a colour for a whole card but you have proven that it can be every bit as delicate as a pink that I would normally turn to. Thank you so much for this inspirational card. I missed the shows but am about to watch reruns via the app! Hanks once again for this great source of inspiration.

    Best wishes from Katie-Louise

  27. Hi Julia. Fab card.I love the rose trellis and the background stamp. Take care.
