On Your Special Day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Heart Lattice Embossing Folder and inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

For the panel, I spread some Cosmic Shimmer Frosty Dawn Sparkle Texture Paste through the Criss Cross Mask onto a piece of patterned paper from the Couture Creations Vintage Rose 6 x 6 Paper Pad. Once dry, I matted it onto a piece of Vintage Gold Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Wedding Greetings A5 Stamp Set and the frame from the Creative Expressions Rose Frame onto Milk Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the largest die in the Spellbinders Marvelous Squares Die Set and inked through the die with Tattered Rose.

I cut the Couture Creations Vintage Rose die out of Vintage Gold Card.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
