Just For You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another really simple card to construct. The dies do all the work.

For the background, I've embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Spellbinders Venetian M-Bossabilities Folder. I cut die #7 from the Spellbinders Astoria Labels Die Set out of Wisteria Card. I cut the corresponding #3 die from the Spellbinders Astoria Decorative Elements Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I glued the 2 die cuts together and then slotted in the #5 die in the Astoria Labels Die Set and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine to create a frame. I added some 3d Foam on the back and popped it onto some Acetate. I added more 3d Foam and then added it to my background.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Blue Violet Archival. I cut it out using the #1 die from the Astoria Decorative Elements Die Set. I cut the #3 die from the Astoria Labels Die Set. I glued these 2 die cuts together, added some 3d Foam and popped them into the centre of the raised Acetate.

I assembled the card as shown adding a couple of White Pearl Corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.
