Amethyst Get Well Soon

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

This is quite a quick and easy card to make.

For the background, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my anti static bag. I inked up the Fence Border Mask with Clear Perfect Medium, popped it onto the dusted card which was sitting on my tan mat on my base plate. I popped the pink embossing plate on top and ran it through the Grand Calibur. The ink transferred to the debossed pattern. I embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Amethyst Mist Lustre Embossing Powder. I popped the remaining card inside the Couture Creations Celebrate Embossing Folder and ran it through the Grand Calibur with the embossed fence design hanging over the edge of the plates. I inked around the edges with Milled Lavender Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the image from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Amythyst Mist Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Milled Lavender.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Amethyst Mist Lustre. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and inked through the die with Milled Lavender.

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.
