Boys will be Boys

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

I created a backgroundby stamping several of the sentiments from the Woodware Birthday's Galore Stamp Set onto Coconut White Card using Versafine Ink. I edged with CS Decadent Teal Colour Cloud using a Smoothie and then matted onto Black Card. I selected a paper from Phill Martin's Timeless 8 x 8 Paper Pad, matted onto Black Card and popped onto a Coconut White Card blank.

I stamped the shoes from the Woodware Toddler Shoes Stamp Set onto another paper from the Timeless Pad using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut them out using scissors and popped them onto my background using Creative Expressions Mounting Cushion.

I stamped the sentiment from the Toddler Shoes Stamp Set onto the Timeless Paper using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Powder. I cut it out using Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares Set B. I used a Clear Perfect Medium Pen around the edges, dipped into True White Detail Powder and heat set.

I completed my card by adding a Small Black Circle Dazzler to each corner.
