Here's today's card -
For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Candy Stripe Embossing Folder.
I cut the sentiment out of Vintage Gold Card and the frame out of Black Card using the Couture Creations Christmas Wish Die Set.
Creative Expressions Shaded Poinsettia Stamp Set twice onto Vintage Gold Card using Jet Black Archival. I used the corresponding dies in Sue Wilson's Classic Poinsettia Die Set to cut them out. I shaped them and glued them together to make the flower. I added a few strands of Jute Twine underneath the flower.
5mm Black Pearls and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
Thanks for stopping by.
Morning Julia, a beautiful card love the simplicity of it.ReplyDelete
