Happy Anniversary

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

All Coconut White Card on this one.

I started with the frame. I cut the outer die in Sue Wilson's Ornate Pierced Squares and then I cut the 3 largest dies together. I glued the 2 pieces together and put aside to dry. Once dry, I seated the inner die back in the frame and ran through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine on the cut sandwich to make the frame.

I embossed a piece of card with the Creative Expressions Star Swirls Embossing Folder. I added 3D Foam to the back of the frame and added it to the embossed piece, trimming away the excess.

I cut the 2 outer dies together in Sue's Wellington Die Set . I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it our using die 2 in the Wellington Set and also cut die 3. I stacked these up onto the other die cut using 3D Foam.

I cut a pair of Sue's Laced Edged Leaves and a bunch of Sue's String Flowers.

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

I've settled on the projects for my workshop in Milton Keynes on 12th March. I'm not going to reveal the complete projects but I can give you itty bitty sneak peeks. There will be 3 projects. You can book on my website here.
