Just For You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the Creative Expressions Butterfly Corner in the top right hand corner of a piece of Milk Card using Dried Marigold Distress Ink. I laid the Elegance Border along the bottom section of the card and inked through the mask with Dried Marigold. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Thinking of You Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dried Marigold.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Bejewelled Bag using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I stamped the sentiment from the same set just below the bag and embossed in the same way. I coloured in using Mango Orange and Summer Green Mica Powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Circus Brights Mica Spray Set and Copper Mica Powder from the Cosmic Shimmer Metallics Mica Spray Set. I cut it out using Spellbinders Pearl Effects and inked through the die with dried Marigold. I added some Cream Pearls to the beaded section of the bag.

I made a flower out of a couple of papers from the Teresa Collins 8 x 8 Paper Pad and the Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Die Set, adding a Cream Pearl to the centre. I cut a couple of leaves out using the Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

 I assembled the card as shown adding a Cream Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlecent PVA in White around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
