Love & Kisses

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by inking through a section of the Ornate Frame Mask onto Coconut White Card in each corner using Currant Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Irish Clubs Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Currant Ink.

I swiped some Currant Ink onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in some Silver Moon Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste. I spread through the Trelliage Mask onto Coconut White Card and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut it into 4 squares and mounted onto Rich Plum Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I did not heat set at this point. I stamped the Baroque Frame around the sentiment using Perfect Medium, added Silver Detail Powder  and heat set the lot. I cut out the inner frame using scissors and then inked around the edges with Currant Ink. I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One out of Rich Plum Card.

I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a Silver Vintage Button.

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

Just in case you missed it yesterday, the Heart Lattice Embossing Folder is back in stock. You can find it here.

Thanks for stopping by.
