Heart and Soul

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background is simply a piece of Milk Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Small Dots Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Meadow Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Justrite Diamond Filigree Background onto Milk Card using Bottle Adirondack Dye Ink. I stamped the Justrite Tulip Damask Background onto Milk Card using Meadow Adirondack Dye Ink. I cut 2 squares out of each background using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large. I cut 4 squares out of Black Card using Spellbinders Marvelous Squares.

 I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Magnolia Vintage Labels 7 Clear Stamp Set using Olive Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embssing Powder. I cut ir out using Justrite Vintage Tag Dies and inked through the die with Meadow Adirondack. I stamped the frame from the Magnolia Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies.

I tied a bow using Green/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Black Vintage Button.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
