Warn people first!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card - a black & white number with just a hint of red.

For the background, I simply ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the Quick Step Stamp using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lava Black Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Labels 29. I cut a Spellbinders A2 Polka Dots Die out of Black Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Step by Step Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Aurora Black Aurora. I cut it out using Sue's Valencia Die Set. I cut another Valencia die out of Black Card. I cut it across the centre and glued the pieces offset at the back of the sentiment panel.

I made a flower out of White Crochet Ribbon. I added some Black Tulle. I cut some leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Small Black Circle Dazzlers to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Black Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  12. Hi Julia

    Great card, the sentiment reminds me of Mr Wheelybad at a Levellers gig! Though I'm not one to talk, wheelchair + strangers toes=... you can probably guess!

    Thanks for making me smile!
