Birthday Wishes

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I started my dusting a piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I inked up a Brayer with Clear Perfect Medium. I used this to ink the deboss side of the Couture Creations Fudge Embossing Folder. I popped the card inside the folder with the dusted side facing the inked side of the folder. I ran it through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine. The ink transferred to the deboss pattern. I then added Phill Martin CS New Gold Mica Powder using a Dusting Brush. I removed the excess using a Dry Wet Wipe.

I dusted another piece of Coconut White Card with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the image from the Justrite Meadow Circles Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I then added Phill Martin CS New Gold Mica Powder using a Dusting Brush. I removed the excess using a Dry Wet Wipe. I cut it out using Justrite Stitched A2 Banners & Rectangles Dies and cut a mat out of Antique Gold Pearl Card using another die from the same set.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Circle of Friends Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite A2 Card Front Basics Dies and cut a mat out of Antique Gold Pearl Card using another die from the same set. I added a Dazzler Setting and a Craft Consortium Large Pearl & Diamante Circle.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Craft Consortium Pearl Hearts and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat.  

Thanks for stopping by.

  21. Simple and effective. The graceful background is enhanced by PM's gold mica powder. A BIG tick for the Justrite Meadow Circles and Circle of Friends stamps. You use them quite a lot and I'm not at all surprised as they are so versatile. Finally the dazzler setting and CC large pearl complete the card perfectly. Thanks.
