Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur using the Creative Expressions Celtic Flower Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Scattered Straw Distress Ink and then rubbed Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax all over the embossed surface. Iput it aside to dry for a few minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped one of the frames from the Mini Ornate Frames Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I did not emboss just yet. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Celebrations Sentiments, again using Perfect Medium, added Gold Detail Powder and heat set the lot. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B ans inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I stamped the Filigree Frame onto Custard Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in the Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B.

I cut some leaves out of Custard Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set. I cut some flowers out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Delicate Daisies - Complete Petals Die Set and inked through the dies with Scattered Straw. I shaped the flowers using a paper shaping tool and a moulding mat. I stacked them in pairs and added a White Pearl to the centre of each.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
