Another card for Mum

Hi Bloggers.

Another panel card today but in a different layout -

For the back background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and then inked around the edges with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

For the panels, I stamped the Justrite Floral Flourishes Background and the Justrite Autumn Damask Background once each using Perfect Medium. Then I dusted Red Blaze, Scarlet Sunset and Lava Red Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Autumn Sunset Mica Spray Set over the images. I lightly wiped away the excess with a dry wetwipe, misted with a little water and heat set. I cut them down into square panels and mounted them onto Burgundy Card.

I stamped the image from the Summer Flowers Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Lava Red Mica Powder, Marine Aqua Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Luscious Greens Mica Spray Set and Pear Green Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Scalloped Labels One and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany. I cut a Spellbinders Captivating Square out of Burgundy Card.

I stamped 'Mum' from the same stamp set, again using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Aged Mahogany. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 out of Burgundy Card.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
