Amazing Friend

Hi Bloggers.

Black Friday Deals continue on my website here. You'll find some of the items used on today's card in Black Friday Deals.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I embossed a piece of Coconut White Card using the Spellbinders Flowers and Leaves Embossing Folder. I ran it through a second time to extend the design - it's not a repeating pattern but is a busy design so easy to hide the join. I wrapped a piece of Craft Consortium Floral Notes Lace Ribbon around the background towards the left-hand side.

I cut the largest die and the next sized die together in the Spellbinders Waterlillies Decorative Accents Die Set out of Coconut White Card. I put aside the die cut from the inner die for another project. I left the largest die in place and drew around the inside with Carved Pumpkin Distress Marker.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I cut the second largest die in the Spellbinders Jeweled Frame Die Set from it and then added CS Diamond Sprinkles.

I stamped the image from the Spellbinders Floral Bouquet onto Coconut White Card using Jet Black Archival. I coloured in using Distress Markers - Carved Pumpkin, Abandonned Coral, Fossilized Amber, Milled Lavender, Shabby Shutters and Crushed Olive. I cut it out using the die from the same set.

I stamped the words from the Spellbinders Journal Words Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. I trimmed them down using scissors and edged them with Carved Pumpkin Distress Marker.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of White Craft Consortium Satin Ribbon and added a Craft Consortium Pearl Heart Charm.

I assembled the card as shown adding an 5mm White Pearl to the corners and piercing around the edges using my Tim Holtz Ruler, Precision Probe and Piercing Mat

Thanks for stopping by.

  18. You have combined unusual colours on this card which I like. The Carved Pumpkin Distress Marker effect on the edge of one layer works really well. Not many people use this colour for layering.
