Hope that you have so much fun

Hi Bloggers.

I'm demoing at Strikes Holland Arms Garden Centre today 10 till 4. Please stop by if you're in the area.

Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the sentiment from Phill Martin's Chic Floral Birthday Verses Clear Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Cobalt Archival. I cut it out using Spellbinders Decorative Curved Squares and inked through the die with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using a Smoothie.

For the frame, I dusted a piece of Coconut White Card with my Anti Static Pad and popped it dusted side up onto my rubber mat which was sitting on my pink embossing plate. I inked up the deboss die in Sue Wilson's Classic Adorned Squares Noble Die Set with Clear Perfect Medium. I placed it inked side down onto my dusted card, added the base plate and ran it through the Grand Calibur. I added Phill Martin Cosmic Shimmer Decadent Denim Embossing Powder to the inked deboss design and heat set. I removed the excess mica using a dry wet wipe. I used the 2 dies either side of the deboss die to cut out the frame.

I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Sparkle Squares Embossing Folder. I added 3d Foam Tape to the back of my frame, popped it onto the embossed card and trimmed off the excess. I double 3d Foam'd the sentiment panel and popped it in the centre.

I tied a messy bow using Blue White American Seam Binding and added a Blue Dazzler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm White Pearls to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler.

Still waiting for JUNE SMITH to claim her giveaway card from 24th June!

Thanks for stopping by.
