Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Great Chain Wire Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Birthday Floral Vintage Labels 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 9. I cut the largest die in the set out of Black Card.

I stamped the Justrite Cornflower Damask Background onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 8. I cut 2 Justrite Vintage Flourish One out of Black Card.

I stamped the flower from the Justrite Birthday Floral Vintage 8 & 9 Clear Stamp Set onto a SVG die cut using Jet Black Archival.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
