To the World

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another really simple card - hopefully you will be able to see the lovely detail from the Gold Rectangles One dies on the pics.

The background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Confetti Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Heartfelt Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Rectangles Large and inked through the die with Fired Brick.

I placed the largest 2 Spellbinders Gold Rectangles Dies within a Spellbinders Grand Rectangle Die onto some Ruby Card and then cut & embossed them.

I made a flower using a die from the Spellbinders Standard Circles Large die set. There are 6 layers in this flower. I'm sorry, I just don't have time to record a step by step for the flowers - I have demoed them quite a few times on tv now and will try and include a demo using a different die set in one of my shows on 12th Sept. I stamped 2 of the leaves from the Heartfelt Creations Open Leaf Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut them out using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Red Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  14. Morning Julia
    I love the rose, looks great with the black and white stamped leaves - will use that myself. Although I LOVE Spellbinders I'm not sure I'm loving the new dies - a bit too subtle for me perhaps!
