Thinking of You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Joe's Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the image panel from the Thank You Stamp onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I coloured it in using Crimson Sparkle and Iced Blush from the Cosmic Shimmer Rainbow Sparkle Pigments Set, also Golden Pear from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Tones Watercolour Paint Set. I cut it out using scissors and added it to a die cut from the Spellbinders Pearl Effects Die Set. I stamped the Delicate Frame onto Black Card using Perfect Medium and embossed using Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using the largest of the Pearl Effects Dies.

I stamped the sentiment from the Single Sentiments Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4.

I made 2 flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon and one flower out of Black Duchess Guipure Lace. I added some Black Self Adhesives Swirls instead of leaves.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Black 8mm Pearl in each corner and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Plum around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Julia.
