Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Heart Lattice Embossing Folder. I rubbed Blush Gilding Wax all over the embossed surface. I left it for about 5 minutes and then buffed it up using a dry wet wipe which makes it smoother and shinier.

I stamped one of the mini frames from the Mini Elegant Frames Set using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder (I did not heat set just yet). I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Typewriter Sentiments, again using Perfect Medium, added Silver Shine Powder and heat set the lot. I cut out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B. I also cut a Spellbinders Locking Loops die.

I cut a Spellbinders Mystical Embrace die out of Black Card.

I cut a couple of leaves out of pink card using Spellbinders Foliage die set. I added some White Tulle, a Pearl Spray and a flower made from Black Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Black Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edge.

Don't forget that Sue has more Weekender Shows today on Create & Craft.

Thanks for stopping by.
