It is so nice knowing ....

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

Another Caught in Crystal Pixie Powder Background on this one. To re-cap how to create it, I used a piece of Heat Emboss Acetate. I added CS Glue and spritzed with a little water. I then sprinkled CS Pixie Powders over - I used Golden Mint and Scarlet Mist. I spritzed with a little more water and then sprinkled CS Frosty Dawn Diamond Frost over. I scrunched up a piece of White Tissue Paper, opened it out and added it to my background. I pressed it into the glue using a piece of Kitchen Roll and put aside to dry (4 – 5 hours).

Once my background was dry, I simply matted it with layers cut from Coconut White Card using Sue Wilson's Belgian Background Die Set (I used Sue's Background Rectangles to cut the outer edge of the largest background die).

The sentiment is from Justrite Doodled Birds stamped using Jet Black Archival.

A really quick card once the background is dry.

Thanks for stopping by.
