Dare to Leap

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Easy peasy card to create.

For the background, I embossed a piece of Milk Card using the Couture Creations Feather Frenzy Embossing Folder.

I dusted another piece of Milk Card with my Anti Static Bag and stamped the image from the Justrite Whisper of Wings Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with the new Cosmic Shimmer Gold Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder. I am waiting for my stock of this to arrive but in the meantime, you could try this with any of the lovely Wow! Embossing Powders that I have in stock.

I cut it out using a banner die from the Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Die Set (currently out of stock at Creative Expressions so can't order any more at the moment). I cut the smaller if the rectangle dies from the same set out of Vintage Gold Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, again onto Milk Card using Clear Perfect Medium. I embossed with CS Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using on eog the circle dies from the same die set.

I cut some little photo corners out of Vintage Gold Card using the same die set.

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