Hi guys! I had forgotten that I had this card as it was made for some shows last August that I did. It was going to be one of the demos then we had to pull the embossing folder from the show at the last minute as the shipment did not show up in time! This is still one of my favourite embossing folders to use. It is called Tied Together. It is quite lovely to use with the Cosmic Shimmer PVA glues as I have done here. A little drop of it at each of the junctions really sets off the background, don't you think? This is a really quick card to put together if you make some of these backgrounds up ahead of time so the glue is good and dry. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with one of the fancy tag die templates. I cut a second one out of a slightly darker card, then cut it in half and used it as a shadow for my sentiment tag. I added a big bow out of the frilly edged ribbon, matted and layered and added some black PVA glue dots to the last mat layer. Just to add a final bit of interest to the background, I added some black rhinestone swirls. I included a close up for you since they are difficult to see.
I see that we have hit our goal for the big blog candy drawing. Yeah!! It will have to be put on hold until I return to England, but anyone that joins as a follower until then will be included in the drawing so not to worry! I have changed it to read 2300 followers on the blog, but if we hit that goal too before I return, we will just draw for both of the candy prizes then! All for now, Sue
