Quite an expensive looking card today, I think. But really easy peasy to make. Just to let you know that I'm hoping to pick up some more handbag/purse stamps tomorrow when I visit Creative Expressions HQ.
My shows on 27th December have been cancelled so my next shows are now 2nd January - details in the left-hand sidebar.
Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. My join is hidden by the edge of the frame die cut, my sentiment and the ribbon!
I stamped the Creative Expressions Basketweave Purse using Perfect Medium and embossed with the Gold Detail Powder. I popped a piece of Double Sided Adhesive Sheet over the image and cut out using Spellbinders 5x7 Curved Matting Basics A. I peeled away the other side of the adhesive and covered in Glass Micro Beads. I added a 5mm Cream Pearl to each corner. I cut a Spellbinders Diamond Effects out of Soft Gold Card.
Champagne Silky Crush and added a Crystal Sparkler.
Cream Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle PVA in Crystal around the edges.
Thanks for stopping by.
This is a really exquisitely elegant card. Thank you so much for all you inspiration. Take care Kitty

Good morning Julia today's card is gorgeous, it does look very expensive. Have a great day I hope all your Christmas prep is going well. Love JackieReplyDelete
Stunning, very classy. NEEDING the dotty fronds stamp - boy I need a lot of items.
Morning Julia, A beautiful card today, I adore the dotted fronds stamp and this basketweave purse is stunning, loving the colours too.ReplyDelete
Lots of love from Patricia xx
Morning Julia and Wattsonettes. Thank you, I'll take that, as it's my craft voucher day !ReplyDelete
Can I please come to CE HQ with you please Julia, oh my word imagin, bet its like heaven, Id love a trolly dash there : ) how on EARTH do you control yourself Julia ? Id be like a puppy in a dog toy store, grabbing everything within reach !!!
Along with the peacock mask and umpteen of the new A4 folders, this is my fav background stamp too (us Wattsonettes have such impecable classie taste) today's card is stunning, opulant and as you say expensive looking, and yes, it does look easy - if only I had the ingrediants : (
Ohhhhh, cant they cancel a less more needed show so we can have our Julia as a late Christmas gift ? Hohum, at least it gives you a longer break Julia instead of 'rushing' to get samples ready so soon after Christmas.
Hope all of you have survived the awful weather last night, and wrap up warm next week for last minute shopping as it's going to be cruel week weatherwise.
Sending love to all this Thursday.
