Never miss a chance to Dance!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder. I rubbed Enchanted Gold over the embossed surface and put aside to dry for a few minutes. Once dry I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe. I wrapped a piece of Cream Crochet Ribbon around the centre.

I stamped the Paso Doble Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Distressed Edges and cut a mat out of Vintage Gold Card using Spellbinders A2 Matting Basics B.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Sentiments Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Classic Squares Small and cut a mat out of Vintage Gold Card using Spellbinders Classic Squares Large.

I tied a bow using Cream Crochet Ribbon and added a Winter White Satin Flower.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Vintage Gold Card using Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves Die Set and added a couple of Winter White Satin Flowers.

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

Thanks for stopping by.

  7. Morning Julia,
    Another lovely card,

  8. Good morning Julia, super card today I.m just waiting for my stamps to arrive Beryl xx

  9. Love the card So don't get me wrong when I say I don't like the name of this stamp To me it should be called Flamenco not Paso Doble

    1. We already have a stamp in the singles range called Flamenco so could not use that. We would have used it for the Senorita stamp if the name was available as she is a Flamenco dancer. Julia

  20. Hi Julia
    Well I made up my mind and luckily the Argentine Tanto collection was still available - I've got enough time to make the card for my mum-in-law as her birthday isn't until December!! She loves Strictly so I'm sure she will appreciate a dancing card!! I missed your morning show so going to catch up now.
    I'm sure you were happy to have Dean as the presenter... wondering who your favourite is??
