Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background is from my demo bits - a piece of Coconut White Card embossed using the Couture Creations Garden Frame then grouted with Phill Martin's CS Chic Grey Blue Sparkle Texture Paste.

The frame is also from my demo bits - cut using Sue's Wilson's Double Pierced Rectangles. I added 3D Foam to the back of the frame and onto some Acetate. I cut Sue's Heart of Hearts Dies out of Coconut White Card. I glued the heart to the Acetate. Rather than waste the little bits from the die cuts, I used them as 'shaker bits' and added more 3D Foam to the back of the Acetate to set it above the grouted background.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Flower Hearts Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Pierced Flags. The flower is also from my demo bits - made using Sue's Perfect Peony Complete Petals and following Sue's tutorial here and here. I added some CS Dries Clear Glue and some CS Iced Snow Glitter Jewels.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearl Corners and some more layers cut using Sue's Double Pierced Rectangles.

    Just in time for Valentine's day. I must check Phills site to see if he has a "Be mine" stamp.
    Take care all Kitty.

    1. I have lots of Phill's stamps on my website. I haven't seen a be mine stamp - I will suggest it to him.

  22. Hello Julia.

    I think this is a beautiful card. As a white on white with the hint of grey and silver it would be lovely as a Wedding Card. I would save the waste from the heart but then forget to use them, lol. Thanks for sharing.

    Best wishes

  23. Hi Julia, wow! Gorgeous card and love the heart. Love the added Chic grey and blue sparkle in the background. Just stunning! Lynn, like you I keep the wasted bits....they all in little pots.....and I forget to use them.....! "Thank you Julia" xx Love Karen xx
