Hello and welcome...

Today's card is white based card, 12.5cm x 18.cm (5"x7")

I   covered the card with a floral mask and, using a sponge applicator, I applied one of the Distress Oxides in 'worn lipstick' over the entire card

I then added a little Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pigment in Lime Frost to the shimmer spray bottle, and sprayed over the inked area.  The water activates the distress oxide ink and the mica powder adds a delicate shimmer, not quite visible on camera today but 'in the flesh' it is.  I put this to one side and left it to dry naturally

I stamped a verse using Adirondack Earthtones in Pitch Black onto a lightweight pink card.  I die cut this using one of the Noble Doubled Pierced Ovals and adhered it in the card.  I die cut another piece of the same pink card and adhered it on the opposite side of the card inner.  I used some of my 'left-over' card stock for this                

Instead of reaching for a full piece of card stock I am using my 'left-over' card pieces as much as possible,  This is one good way to use them
I also used a small flower punch and punched 5 flowers out of white card, another way to use left-over card, and glued them around the verse and glued a gold sequin to the centres

I stamped and embossed a sentiment, from the Sweet Sentiment Range by Creative Expressions, onto the same pink card stock, using a VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and WOW Embossing Powder in Metallic Copper

Using several dies from the Marvellous Squares by Spellbinders I used the 3rd one to die cut the sentiment and used wet glue to adhere this to the card, at a 'jaunty' angle

I stamped and embossed a sentiment, from the Sweet Sentiment Range by Creative Expressions, onto the same pink card stock, using a VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and WOW Embossing Powder in Metallic Copper

Using several dies from the Marvellous Squares by Spellbinders I used the 3rd one to die cut the sentiment and used wet glue to adhere this to the card, at a 'jaunty' angle

I used the 2nd and 3rd die, from the same set, to cut and embossed a frame on white card.  I did this 3 times and glued these together then added mounting foam to the back to give me a raised frame to place over the sentiment


To complete I applied a thick line of Collall 3D Glue around one side of the frame and arranged the pink, ivory and white flowers

  1. Hi June
    Beautiful card. The flowers are lovely.
    Roses look so much better than wisteria, don't you think?
