Wishing you a happy day

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I started by dusting a piece of Bright White Card with an Anti Static Bag. I inked up the main die in the Spellbinders Houndstooth Die Set with Clear Perfect Medium using a Brayer and ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with my dusted card using the emboss sandwich. The transferred to the deboss pattern. I dusted Phill Martin Decadent Bamboo Mica Powder over the surface using asoft brush and removed the excess with a dry wet wipe. I cut the background out using the outer die from the same set.

I stamped the sentiment from John Lockwood's Pierced Tag Sentiments Stamp Set onto Bright White Card using Fern Green Archival. I cut it out using the banner die from the Spellbinders Floral Berry Accents Die Set and inked through the die with CS Phill Martin Decadent Bamboo Colour Cloud using a Smoothie.

I cut the corner die from the Floral Berry Accents Die Set , both the leaves and the die that cuts 4 flowers, inking through the dies with Decadent Bamboo Colour Cloud.

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

Thanks for stopping by.
