Friends Warm the Heart

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 Couture Creations Passion Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design - it's not a repeating pattern but the join is not visible.

I popped some CS Flake & Glitter Glue onto a piece of Wax Paper. I picked it up onto a piece of Cut n Dry Foam and used it to ink up the Justrite Blooming Vines Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Coconut White Card leaving the stamp on the card no more than 3 seconds so as not to tear the card. I cleaned my stamp under a cold tap and then went back to my stamped image. I added CS Harvest Moon Gilding Flakes. I removed the excess using a piece of Rubit Scrubit. I cut it down into 3 pieces and matted onto Antique Gold Pearl Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Circle of Friends Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Bright Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite A2 Butterfly Garden Dies. I also cut the butterfly wreath from the same set out of Antique Gold Pearl Card. I cut a mat out of Antique Gold Card using Sue Wilson's Melbourne Die Set.

I made a flower out of Coconut White Card using Sue's Camellia Complete Petals Die Set. I added some CS Glue and CS Iced Snow. I cut a pair of leaves out of Anitque Gold Card using Sue's Laurel Leaves Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown adding a 5mm White Pearls to each corner and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

Thanks for stopping by.
