We're heading back down to Glasgow today. I'm hoping to be able to meet up with a friend who I haven't seen for 30 years! I think last time we saw each other we went to see Big Country at the Glasgow Apollo - loved it! I did have quite a crush on the lead singer, Stuart Adamson!
Here's today's card -
Couture Creations French Frame onto a piece of Milk Card and stamped the Curly Corner Stamp through it using Jet Black Archival. I quickly removed the frame, added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. 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.
I cut the Couture Creations French Frame of Black Card and glued it around the Curly Corner.
I stamped the sentiment from the All Occasions Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Powder. I cut it pot using Couture Creations Cameo Die.
I wrapped some Black Crochet Ribbon around the bottom section of the card. I cut a border out of Milk Card using one of the dies from the Couture Creations Chandeliers Set and glued it on top of the ribbon. I added some Black Organza Ribbon Roses and some Black Pearls.
I assembled the card as shown adding some more Black Pearls to the top corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.
Here's another pic of Sue in action on Saturday -

Julia - I saw you do this card as a demo on the TV and I know you said it did not go right, however I could not see the "happy accidents" in the close up shots. Good card - great idea for the frame.ReplyDelete
Hl Julia,very nice card .Love the corner stamps. Enjoy Glasgow,hope you have time to meet your friends.ReplyDelete
Hi Julia,very nice card,love the corner stamps.ReplyDelete
Have a nice time in Glasgow,hope you have time to meet you friends.
Oh wow, what an absolutely stunning card. I have to have the curly corner stamp!
I so wish it was a feminine card I was now about to go and make! I appear to be becoming Mr WheelyBad's personal stationer :-) I wonder what he's doing wrong when all these people he's working with keep leaving!
Crafty hugs and a safe journey for both yourself and Sue.
Lovely card Julia, I love that corner stamp.ReplyDelete
Hugs to all

After which, safe journey home.
