Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Creative Expressions Floral Stripes Embossing Folder. I needed to run the card through with the folder a second time to extend the design as the stripes would have been going across the card which I did not want on this occasion. I matted onto another piece of Coconut White Card, then Midnight Blue Pearl Card and then Coconut White Card.

I cut the outer die of one of the corner dies from Sue Wilson's Indonesian Border and Corners Die Set out of Midnight Blue Card four times. I both dies from the same corner set out of Coconut White Card 4 times and glued the pieces together. I added a 5mm White Pearl to each of the corner pieces.

I cut die #4 from Sue's Bali Die Set out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card. I cut dies #3 and #4 together from the same set out of Coconut White Card. I glued the 2 die cuts together. I cut die #2 from the same setout of Coconut White Card. I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag and stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Petite Lavish Sentiments Stamp Set using Clear Perfect Medium. I added CS Denim Brilliant Sparkle Embossing Powder and heat set.

I chose one of the handbags from Sue's Vintage Handbags Die Set. I cut the outside die out of Midnight Blue Pearl Card and both the dies out of Coconut White Card. I did not put a handle on this one. I added 3mm White Pearls to the cross sections on the design and a 5mm White Pearl to the centre of the flower design on the handbag.
