Never Give Up

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I stamped one of the corners from the Justrite Ornate Corners Clear Stamp Set in all 4 corners of a piece of Coconut White Card using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink. I stamped one of the smaller elements from the same stamp set top and bottom in the gaps. I made sure the ink was dry and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Victorian Velvet.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite What Defines Us Clear Stamp Set using Victorian Velvet. I cut it out using Justrite Filigree Bracket Die Set and inked through the die with Victorian Velvet.

I tied a bow using Pink/White Striped Grosgrain Ribbon and added a White Crystal Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some dots of Phill Martin Graceful Pink PVA around the edges.

Don't forget to pop back later to see if you've won the card from Christmas Day's post.

Thanks for stopping by.
