Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Eternal Ivy Embossing Folder. I then misted the background with CS Pearl Mist.

I cut the inner die only from the Spellbinders Swirl Stripe Panel out of Peach Card. I re-seated one half of the die back into the die cut and ran through the machine again to extend the design. I repeated this twice more. I added this to my embossed background. I cut a frame out of Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's  Double Pierced Rectangles and Double Pierced Rectangles Set B. I added it to my backgrounds using 3d Foam.

I stamped the sentiment from the Heartfelt Creations Feathered Grass Flourish Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Pearl Lustre Embossing Powder. I cut it out using the deboss die in the Spellbinders Ornamental Crest Die Set. I misted the deboss frame with CS Pearl Mist.

I tied a bow using Craft Consortium Ivory Satin Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Small Circle Pearl Diamante.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Craft Consortium Pearls to the corners of the frame.

  19. Sorry this comment is somewhat late in the day but I have not long returned from a trip to the emergency opthalmic outpatients at Truro hospital as inflammation has hit my second cataract removal eye. As with the first, everything went well until five weeks after discharge then ............! My newly married friend didn't expect to have to spend her time ferrying me to Newquay then Truro two days running. Just hope I can drive back home OK on Wednesday. Anyway, this is supposed to be a comment on a very pretty card rather than one on my eye problems! I do like this swirly die that has been used to make the central panel. Julia! Are you trying to make me spend more money because I do want this one,!!!!!!!!.
