Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised, today I'm sharing a card from tomorrow's shows. I have new dies and embossing folders from Couture Creations on the shows and lots more lovely things.

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Chain Wire Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design - this one is a repeating pattern. I inked around the edges with Barn Door Distress Ink.

I cut a Couture Creations Ornate Rectangle and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink. The inside of the frame cuts away from the ornate outer frame - which is great so you can have a different colour outy and inny. However, I wanted the 2 together so secured them at the back with some double sided tape.

I cut the Couture Creations Wedding Rose Die out of Rich Red and Brunswick Green Card. I cut the rose head off the green one and glued the stem and leaves on top of the red one.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Everyday Expressions Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Couture Creations Elegant Square and inked through the die with Barn Door Distress Ink.

I wrapped a piece of White Crochet Ribbon around the bottom section of the background and added some Small Fancy Pearl Embellishments.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
