You Are So Special

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I used a piece of Foundations Floral Dream Paper. I cut a fancy aperture out of it using the largest of the Spellbinders Nobel Rectangles dies.

I stamped the Fishtail Frock using Jet Black Archival  and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Inks. I used Blue Lace & Blue Cotton from the Soft Velvet Set and Warm Delight from the Skin Tones Set. I cut it out using scissors and went around the edges with a black marker pen to hide any white bits. I cut my backer out using the 2 largest Nobel Rectangles, at the emboss stage I added the Trellis Mask. I inked through the die with Faded Jeans Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped my sentiment that comes with the Vintage Dressform, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with Faded Jeans.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Blue Dazzler and a couple of Crystal Decorative Stick Pins.

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.
