Pamper Yourself

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I first cut an edge die and an insert die from the Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities Die Set onto some Coconut White Card. I then popped it onto one side of the Spellbinders Garden Lattice M-Bossabilities Folder with the cutting edge of the dies face up, away from the folder. I added the tan mat (to make up the thickness of the folder) and the raspberry plate then popped it through the Grand Calibur. 

I stamped the Engraved Elegance perfume bottle using Perfect Medium and embossed with Olympic Gold Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Lattice Rectangles and inked through the die with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I stamped the sentiment that comes with the image using Perfect Medium and embossed with Olympic Gold Lustre. I cut it out using Spellbinders Branching Out and inked through the die with Antique Linen.

I made a flower using Heartfelt Creations Posy Patch Dies, adding a Cream 8mm Pearl to the centre. I cut some leaves using Heartfelt Creations Classic Leaf Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more Cream Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Yellow PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
