Shows on Create & Craft Today

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today at 10am with Martyn and 3pm with Lee. Hope you can join me.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Oriental Garden Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I cut the Couture Creations Lacy 8 Die twice out of Mauve Card. This die cuts a frame and kind of a round stained glass window design. I put one of the frames aside to use in another project. I scored the 2 inner designs, cut along one section to the centre and mountain/valley folded them. I joined them together using Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to make a rosette.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Everyday Expressions Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Elegant Square Die and inked through the die with Dusty Concord Distress Ink.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 5mm White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Lilac PVA around the edges.

See you later.

Thanks for stopping by.
