To my Dear Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the border from the Justrite Floral Fan Elements Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival along the top and bottom of the card. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the fan from the Justrite Floral Fan Elements Clear Stamp Set 3 times using Jet Black Archival and added Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder (I did not heat set just yet). I stamped the sentiment in the centre of one, added clear powder and heat set. I stamped the flower in the other 2, added clear powder and heat set. It's not actually essential to emboss the stamped fan but I find the image shows up better when adding Glitter Jewels. I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to each image and cut out using the Justrite Vintage Fan Die. I removed the backing and added Cosmic Shimmer Crystal Chips. I assembled the fan as shown securing with a Black Brad and Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I cut a couple of Spellbinders Adorning Squares Dies out of Black Card and mounted the fan on top using 3d Foam.

I assembled the card as shown adding a Black Swirl and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Black Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
