Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Mauve Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Retro Flowers Embossing Folder. I rubbed Phill Martin Vintage Lavender Gilding Wax all over. I ran some Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Lavender Twinkles around the edges and put aside to dry.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto some Coconut White Card. I cut the Couture Creations Tied Together Die, removed the backing sheet and applied some Micro Beads.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Hope & Love Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut the largest Vintage Labels 9 out of Mauve Card.

I stamped the flower from the Justrite Birthday Floral Vintage Labels 8 & 9  Clear Stamp Set into an Offset SVG cut using Jet Black Archival and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder. I coloured it using mica powders from the Cosmic Shimmer Garden Flora Mica Spray Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Lavender PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

  15. I have never thought of putting a lattice over embossed card like you have here - will go through my stash to see what I have that might work the same. Stop using Phil's stuff until he starts paying you commission! - LOL! - I am currently saving my pennies to buy his Graceful colours in a number of different mediums. Lovely card.
