Love & Kisses

Hi Bloggers.

I'm off early this morning to attend a mixed media workshop - really looking forward to it!

Here's today's card -

For the background, I spread some CS Clear Lacquer Varnish over a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I then sprinkled CS Silver Mica Powder over and used my fingers to spread it over the entire area. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper and added it to my background, pressing it down with a piece of Kitchen Roll. I put aside to dry.

Once my background was dry, I cut the Spellbinders Renaissance Border Two out of Coconut White Card 4 times and glued them to the front of the Acetate.

I made a frame using Sue Wilson's Stitched Lattice Frame Die Set. I added it to my background using 3D Foam, trimming away the excess using scissors.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Spring Wishes Vintage Labels Eight Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Silver Shine Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using a die from Spellbinders Acanthus Leaf Tags. I cut the corresponding larger die from the set out of Steel Pearl Card.

I cut a couple of leaves out of Steel Pearl Card using Spellbinders Romantic Vines and made a flower out of felt from the Wedding Felt Pack using Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms.

I finished my card with a few mats of Coconut White and Steel Pearl Card and some 8mm White Pearls in the corners of my frame.
