Happily Ever After

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.

I stamped the frame and the sentiment from the Justrite Live, Love, Laugh Vintage Labels Two Clear Stamp Set using Plum Archival. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels Two Die Set and inked through the die with Seedless Preserves.

I cut a Spellbinders Labels 29 out of Rich Plum Card and then ran it through the Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folders. I rubbed some CS Phill Martin Vintage Lavender Gilding Wax over the embossed design. Once dry, I buffed it up using a dry wet wipe. I cut 2 x Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Die out of Rich Plum Card and tucked them in top and bottom of the Labels 29 die cut.

I stamped the Justrite Iron Swirls Background using Plum Archival. I cut 3 panels and matted them onto Rich Plum Card.

I wrapped some Cream Crochet Ribbon around the background, over the panels and tied a bow. I made a flower using Sue's Delicate Daisies Open Petals out of Rich Plum Card and added a 5mm Cream Pearl to the centre.

I assembled the card as shown adding some more Cream Pearls to the corners and I pierced around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
