Happy Anniversary

Hi Bloggers.

For the background, I popped the All Stirred Up Mask onto a piece of Coconut White Card and spread CS Polar White Sparkle Texture Paste through it. Leaving the mask in place, I sprinkled Scarlet Mist and Sun Yellow CS Pixie Powders over. I removed the mask and put aside to dry.

I spritzed a piece of Watercolour Card with Water and sprinkled over the same 2 Pixie Powders. I put this aside to dry.

I stamped the sentiment and the frame from the Justrite Congrats Card Basics Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I cut them out using an oval die from the Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Die Set. I cut the largest oval from the Justrite Hello Decorative Oval Frame Dies out of my Pixie Powdered piece (once it was dry) and I cut the large decorative die from the same set out of Coconut White Card.

Once my Texture Paste Background was dry, I added a Coconut White frame cut using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares and Double Pierced Squares Set B.

I spritzed some water onto my Craft Sheet and added a little of the 2 Pixie Powders I had used before. I dragged some Blue White American Seam Binding through it and dried it using my Heat Tool. I used 2 lengths of my coloured ribbon to tie a bow. I added another bow tied using 3 lengths of Black Jute Twine and covered the knots with a Gold Dazzler.

I finished my card with a couple of Coconut White mats and added some corners from my Pixied card cut using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies.

Thanks for stopping by.
