Hi Bloggers.

John Lockwood has shows on Create & Craft today - please check the schedule for the times. Today's card features some dies that are on his shows, the border die I was hoping to have on my Toolshed on 16th but it's on John's shows instead, so I thought I'd share this card today. It means you also get a little sneak peek of one of the sentiment stamps and die set from my Toolshed.

We'll start with the background, as usual. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Primrose Card. I removed the backing and added Glass Micro Beads. I cut one of the borders from the Couture Creations Simplicity Borders Set out of Coconut White Card 5 times. I glued them to the micro beaded background, offsetting them as shown.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Hope & Love Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9 Dies and inked through the die with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I cut another Vintage Labels 9 Die out of Primrose Card.

I cut some of Sue's Daisies Complete Petals out of Primrose Card and Daisies Open Petals out of Coconut White Card. I cut 2 of each of each of the sizes shown and glued them together, adding a White Pearl to the centre of each. I cut Sue's Curled Vines out of Coconut White Card a couple of times and added them behind the flowers, cutting some of them up first.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
