Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder. I wrapped a a piece of Blue/White Striped Grosgrain around it towards one side.

I stamped the celebrate sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Emjoy the Day Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Phill Martin's Graceful Blue Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4.

I stamped the Life is Good drame from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with Graceful Blue Embossing Powder. I cut it out using another Justrite Vintage 4 Die.

I cut the largest die in the Vintage Labels 4 Die Set out of Coconut White Card and then ran it through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Quilted Flower Embossing Folder.

I cut the largest die from the Spellbinders Ornate Squares Die Set out of Coconut White Card and rubbed Grraceful Blue Gilding Wax over it.

I tied a bow using Blue/White Striped Organza, added a White Crystal Sparkler and a couple of Decorative Stick Pins.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of White Pearls to 2 of the corners, a Pearl Swirl and some dots of Graceful Blue PVA around the edges.

I am pleased to announce that I will be demoing at Phill Martin's shop, Honeypot Crafts, with the man himself on Sunday 1st February. Should be a fun day!

Thanks for stopping by.
