Hi Bloggers.

I found this card in a box the other day and I don't think it's been on the blog yet -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Vintage Gold Card using the Creative Expressions Rambling Blossoms Embossing Folder. I then embossed a piece of Milk Card using the same folder, inking around the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I stamped the Justrite Garden Trellis Background onto Milk Card using Cosmic Shimmer Flake & Glitter Glue. I cleaned my stamp and then added Cosmic Shimmer Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I cut it into strips and mounted 2 of them onto Vintage Gold Card to sit diagonally behind the main image.

I atamped the main image from the Justrite True Friends Vintage Labels 4 Stamp Set onto Milk Card using Flake & Glitter Glue. I cleaned my stamp and then added Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set onto Milk Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut both the main image and the sentiment out using Justrite Vintage Labels 4 Dies.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Milk Card. I peeled off the backing sheet and rubbed Persian Dawn Gilding Flakes over it removing the excess with a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I cut a pair of leaves from this using Sue Wilson's Petite Vinery Die Set. I made a flower out of Cream Crochet Ribbon.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

 Before I go, just a plea - if you're ordering on my website from Europe, please locate your country from the drop down list when you register - please don't leave the country as United Kingdom. Thank You.

Thanks for stopping by.
