Thanks Again!

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For this card, I made my background by first cutting the central die from the Couture Creations Bobtail Set out of Coconut White Card 5 times. I cut 4 of them roughly in half using my trimmer and glued them around the edges of a piece of Blue Dusk Card, 2 to each side as shown.

I cut the 2 outer dies together to form a circluar frame and used it to helo me position the 5th central die cut . I removed the frame and ran the background through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Cotton Thread Quilt Embossing Folder.

I adding the frame with a little 3D Foam that I cut down into narrow strips.

I cut a couple of Sue Wilson's Pierced Flag Dies out of Coconut White and Blue Dusk Card. I glued them together and shaped them while the glue was still wet. I cut the Couture Creations Script Thanks Die out of Blue Dusk Card.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Blue Satin Edged Organza. I cut the Couture Creations Island Flower Border out of Coconut White Card. I cut it down into individual flowers and used 4 of them to make my flower. I added a 5mm White Pearl to the centre.

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