A Life Full of Joy

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped the border from the Justrite Elegant Fan Elements Clear Stamp Set top and bottom of a piece of Milk Card using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Dandelion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design and inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet. I rubbed Phill Martin's Vintage Rose Gilding Wax over the surface. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wetwipe. I ran some Vintage Rose Twinkles around the edges and put aside to dry.

I stamped the fan images from the Justrite Vintage Fan and Sentiments Clear Stamp Set, adding the sentiment to the panels in 2 of them, using Victorian Velvet. I cut them all out using Justrite Vintage Fan Die and inked the very edges with Victorian Velvet. I cut the largest Justrite Vintage 8 Die out of Black Card.

I cut some flowers out of Milk Card using Sue's Delicate Daisies Open Petals and inked them using Victorian Velvet. I added a Small Black Circle Dazzler to the centres. I cut some leaves out of Black Card using Sue's Curled Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Vintage Rose PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
