Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

Tomorrow I will be on the Craft Clinic on Create & Craft from 11am till 1pm. I hope you can join me. It's a show full of tips and techniques.

Here's today's card featuring Sue's Fire & Ice Technique -

I started by cutting Sue's French Background out of Coconut White Card. I added a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet to the front of the card. On the back, where the adhesive was exposed through the die cut, I added Cosmic Shimmer Aurora Lights Gilding Flakes and rubbed away the excess with a piece of Rubbit Scrubbit.

I peeled away the backing sheet from the other side of the adhesive (on the front of the card) and added Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Amazing Sentiments Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the Tag Die from Sue's French Border, Corner and Tag Die Set.

I cut some leaves out using Sue's Petite Vinery Die Set. I made a flower using Sue's Delicate Daisies - Open Petals Die Set and added a Small Circle Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
