True Friendship

Hi Bloggers.

Thanks for all your orders for the Spellbinders Tool n One. There's a video demo on YouTube by Spellbinders here.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Exotic Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Classic Cobalt Eco Green Dye Ink Pad.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Irises Vintage Labels Four Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival ans embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured in using Eco Green Dye Ink Pads. I used Classic Cobalt, Lavender Organza and Emerald. I also used Sunflower Cosmic Shimmer Matt Drawing Ink from the Summer Fayre Set. I cut the image out using a Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die. I cut a Spellbinders Decorative Labels One out of Cobalt Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite True Friends Vintage Labels Four Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it out using a Justrite Vintage Labels Four Die and cut another die out of Cobalt Card.

I tied a bow using Blue/Ivory Striped Grosgrain and added a Fancy Pearl Embellishment.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Sparkle PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
