On Your Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

Another card from Thursday's shows -

The background is simply a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Cheerful Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then rubbed Pearl Moon Gilding Wax all over it.

I stamped the image from the Garden Party Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink. I coloured the image in using Cosmic Shimmer Watercolour Paints. I used Antique Green, Jade Mint, Marine Sea and Sapphire Sparkle - all from the Luscious Greens Set.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with clear powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I stamped the Vintage Filigree A6 stamp using Faded Jeans and embossed with clear powder. I made a flower as in this tutorial but, I confess, I cheated and used a punch instead of the flower stamp. I cut a couple of leaves out using the Heartfelt Creations Ornamental Add On Die Set.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

    How was the visit with Kathryn?
    Well another beautiful card, love the shoes. The embossed background with the wax really pops I really like the shimmer you get. I would use my waxes more often but I love the smell too much and sit there sniffing them instead of using them....
