A Cheerful Hello

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started by stamped one of the stamps from the Love & Cherish Set towards the bottom of a piece of Milk Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Blue Embossing Powder. I ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Peacock Fans Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.

I stamped the other stamp from the Love & Cherish Stamp Set twice, using Perfect Medium and embossed with Pastel Blue Powder. I cut them out using the Couture Creations Royal Oval Die and inked through the die with Stormy Sky.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Everyday Expressions Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Pastel Blue Powder. I cut it out using the Royal Oval Die. I cut the die again out of Sky Blue Card and inked through the die with Stormy Sky. I used just the outer frame to surround the sentiment.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Blue PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
