Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I cut one of Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B out of Coconut White Card. I added the largest die in the Couture Creations Malvoisie Corners Die Set and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine.

I cut the other 2 dies in the Malvoisie Corners Die Set out of Black Card and added them to the corresponding corners at the back of the frame die cut, offsetting them slightly to create a shadow.

I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Couture Creations Large Circles Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design. I added the frame to it using 3d Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I cut it out using the the middle die from the Couture Creations Scrolled Tomentosa Die Set. I cut the largest die in the set out of Black Card. I put the ornate frame aside to use in another project and just used the fall away inner piece.

I cut the smallest die in the Scrolled Tomentosa Set out of White Card 3 times and out of Black Card 3 times. I made a scrunched up flower, alternating the layers between back and white.

I cut the smallest die in the Couture Creations Mercanto Flourish out of Coconut White Card and used the die cut as leaves for my flower.

I assembled the card as shown adding some 8mm Black Pearls, a Black mat cut with Sue's Double Pieces Squares and a White mat cut with Sue's Double Pierced Squares Set B.

Thanks for stopping by.
