Best Wishes for a Bright Future

Hi Bloggers.

This is another card I found that hasn't been on the blog -

For the background, I stamped one of the element stamps from the Justrite Grateful Hearts Vintage Labels 2 Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card 4 times using Cobalt Archival. I then covered it with a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet and added Cosmic Shimmer Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.

I stamped the 2 frames and the sentiment from the same stamp set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival and cut them out using Justrite Vintage Labels 2 Dies. I cut a Spellbinders Classic Ovals Large Die out of Cobalt Card to pop in between the 2 frames.

I cut the Justrite Heirloom Flourish 2 Die out of Cobalt Card twice and used the curly bits to 'hold hands' with the larger frame.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls to the corners and piercing arund the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Thanks for stopping by.
