Best Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

A non-dance themed card today -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Sea Garden Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Pink Sherbet Adirondack Dye Ink. I rubbed Blush Gilding Wax over the embossed design and put aside to dry for a few minutes. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe.

I stamped one of the Mini Ornate Frames onto Pink Card using Perfect Medium and added Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder (I did not heat set just yet. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Celebrations Sentiments Stamp Set in the centre using Perfect Medium, added True White Detail Powder and heat set the lot. I cut it out using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B. I cut the next two sizes from the same die set out of Coconut White Card and Pink Card.

I cut a Couture Creations Lotus Filet out of Coconut White Card.

I popped some Cosmic Shimmer Warm White Matt Chalk Paint onto my Craft Sheet and mixed in some Frosty Mallow Mica Powder from the Delicate Lace Cosmic Shimmer Mica Spray Set. I used this to change the colour of a piece of White Crochet Ribbon using Cut n Dry Foam. Once dry, I cut it in half lengthways and made a flower. I cut a couple of leaves out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set.

I pressed 3 Art Deco Metal Corners into Perfect Medium, added True White Detail Powder, tapped off the excess and heat set. I let them cool down for a few minutes and then added some CS Dries Clear Glue to the back. I left them for a few minutes for the glue to go tacky and then added them to the corners.

I assembled the card as shown adding dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Cosmic Pearl around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  24. Hi Julia,
    Long time no comment! Sorry about that but I have looked in each day but I'm afraid the dance stamps just don't appeal to me at all. It's purely a personal thing as others clearly like them
    Today's card I really like. I love the colours used and your crochet flower is lovely.
    Have a good day.
    Love Myra
