Some People

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background on this one took a few days as I let each corner dry naturally. I placed one of the corners on the Ornate Elements Mask butt up to the corner of a piece of Black Card and added Gunmetal Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste to the selected corner design. I removed the mask and put aside to dry. Once dry, I repeated the process in another corner. I continued to do this until all 4 corners were complete.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Kind Thoughts Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Basic Frames Die Set A from the Californian Collection. I cut a Decorative Frame Set B out of Grey Card.

I wrapped some Silver Silky Crush Ribbon around the centre of the background and also tied a bow using 2 lengths of it. I made a flower out of Black Crochet Ribbon and added it to my bow.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Black 8mm Pearl to each corner and I pierced around the edges.

For anyone interested, I've just popped some Heartfelt Creations stuff on Ebay - click on the link in the menu at the top of the page to go and have a look.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.

    Thank you for sharing this card - you have the patience of a Saint - to wait for all 4 corners to dry.
    Love the look of the gunmetal paste! I love this technique - I must say I've just been adding mica powders to the clear paste and love the way it has come out - just got to put it all on a card - hooray for football on tv on a Tuesday night - my craft night if I don't get to do it any other night!!
    Take care, hope you are on the mend.

  29. Hi Julia,
    I think this is a very striking card today. The corners are lovely. I was thinking the silver / gunmetal black combo would look nice at Christmas too with maybe a bauble as the focal point. You make lovely cards and inspire us ! Thank you.
    Looking forward to this week's Shows. Will try to see at least one Live!
    Have a lovely day,
    Love Myra
