If Friends Were Flowers

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Coconut White and Custard Card on this one. The back background has been run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Extra Loren Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time and then inked around the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

For the 3 panels, I stamped the Justrite Autumn Damask Background using Scattered Straw. I did this twice and then cut down to size.

I stamped the image from the Creative Expressions Spring Flowers Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Tropic Yellow Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 28 and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Tropic Yellow Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in White around the edges.

Don't forget to tune into Hels' Pick of the Day shows today on Ideal World and Create & Craft. Lots of Melt Pot goodies!

Thanks for stopping by.
