For Being You

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I cut the Spellbinders Two Way Street Die by Marisa Job out of Coconut White Card. I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Aqua Card and trimmed to just fractionally smaller than the die cut. I peeled away the other backing sheet and added it to the die cut. I rubbed CS Diamond Sprinkles into the exposed adhesive. I matted the piece onto Aqua Card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite For All You Do Vintage Labels Three 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 small die from the Spellbinders Renaissance Tags Two Die Set and cut the corresponding larger die from the set out of Aqua Card.

I popped a piece of Creative Expressions Double Sided Adhesive Sheet onto a piece of Coconut White Card. I cut a couple of flowers from it using Spellbinders Shabby Posies Die Set. I removed the other backing sheet and rubbed CS Diamond Sprinkles into them. I added a Duck Egg Craft Consortium Resin Flower to the centres. 

I cut a couple of leaves out of Aqua Card using the Spellbinders Romantic Vines Die Set.

I assembled the card as shown, adding some White 5mm Pearls and popping onto a Coconut White Card Blank.

  17. George Michael and Carrie Fisher - symbols of my era, of growing up (sixth-form, University and then my first job) - am listening to the George Michael playlist on Amazon at the moment. Have not seen Rogue One yet - I saw the first Star Wars movie twice in 7 days!!

    Good news about Woodware - I am a fan of some of their stamps - not sure who designs them, so will wait and see what CE brings out.

    I love this background die, goes well with a similar stencil that I have.

    Now back to work for both of us.

  18. A beautiful card today Julia, I love the idea of the double sided adhesive sheet with the sprinkles on it, always finishes a card so beautifully and on your flowers too....thank you...luv Ursula xx
