Here's today's card -
This card was inspired by a card I saw on Sue's blog last week. Again, a very simple card to construct.
For the background, I inked through the Delicate Mask with Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Confetti Embossing Folder
. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold using Cut n Dry Foam
I made 2 frames out of apricot card using a couple of the dies from the Spellbinders Gold Squares One with a die from the Classic Squares Large either side.
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 tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Peach Dazzler.
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.
A lovely card, lovely colour. I think the new dies look more effective with the centre cut out to create a frame.
