Hi Blogger.

Day 2 of Ally Pally - do stop by the Creative Expressions stand if you're attending today.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the new Creative Expressions Fine Finials Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using a Creative Expressions Smoothie.

I stamped the heart and the sentiment from the new John Lockwood Stamp Set Daisy Chain Elements using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using a die from the Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy 5 x 7 Card Creator Die Set and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink.

I cut the largest die in the Spellbinders Heirloom Legacy 5 x 7 Card Creator Die Set out of Periwinkle Card.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of 3/4" Off White Satin Ribbon. I tied another bow using 3 lengths of 1/16" Bluebird Ribbon. I made a flower out of Periwinkle Card using Spellbinders Flower Play Die Set following Sue's tutorial here and here. I added Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue to the bud and petals and then sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels over. Once dry, I added it to my bows.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
