Life is better with you in it

Hi Bloggers.

Sue and I have been receiving emails asking how to put the Sweet Juliet Die cuts together to form a flower. There's a video on the Heartfelt Creations Blog showing how to do this. Click here to go straight there.

Here's today's card -

 For the background, I laid the Delicate Border Mask across the top of a piece of Coconut White Card and inked around it using Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I repeated this at the bottom of the card. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Happy Birthday Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord.

I stamped the Creative Expressions Rose Blossom Purse onto Mauve Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 2 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut a Spellbinders Captivating Squares die out of  purple card and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Timeless Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Four and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut a larger die from the same set and once again inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Frosted Violet Dazzler.

 I assembled the card as shown addingan 8mm White Pearl to each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel PVA in Pastel Lilac around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Morning Julia and all Wattsonettes before me, and those bobbing in after me : )
    Looks like this is a winner today Julia, and Im adding to your praises. Beautiful, delicate, and so very pretty. Any girl/woman of any age would be thrilled to receive a card like this on their birthday. Not long before I produce another wrinkle and lines and age spots, but that means I get my craft vouchers, so Im not that fussed (just dont like the jowel and missing top lip syndrome) !! Oh just imagin how much fun Id have if I had a voucher for each year of my life : ) mind you, wouldn't get much with £20.00 !!! I wish.
    Hope all my lovely lady Wattsonettes, and.Julia have a really nice day whatever you have planned.
