Have a Truly Fabulous Day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I cut the Couture Creations Evergreen Die out of Coconut White Card. Using Lavender Lace Colour Cloud and a Smoothie, I used the Evergreen die cut as a mask and inked all over a piece of Coconut White Card.

I cut one of the borders from the Couture Creations Simone's Style Die Set out of Coconut White Card 4 times. I trimmed them down to make a frame all around my background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Die Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Amethyst Mist Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the middle sized die in the Couture Creations Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set and inked through the die with Lavender Lace. I cut the largest die in the Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set and again inked through the die with Lavender Lace. I used both the outer frame and the fall out piece stacking up with 3d Foam.

I made a couple of flowers using the Couture Creations Falling Blossoms Die Set, inking the edges of the petals with Lavender Lace and adding some White Pearls. I used my Evergreen mask for the leaves, trimming it down into sections.

I assembled the card as shown adding a few 3mm White Pearls to the mitred corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.

Thanks for stopping by.
