Hello everyone! Finally back on dry land after the first ever Create and Craft Cruise! Not to say that I have stopped swaying yet though! I am having some issues with Blogger not allowing me to load extra pictures so I thought I would try to see if I could add some on the the bottom of each blog post this week so you can get a bit of the flavour from the cruise. Starting with the card first, though. I embossed the background of this card using the Heart Embossibility folder. I inked the edges with Victorian Velvet distress ink to add a bit of colour to the milk coloured card. I cut a frame using the largest of the Floral Oval dies and a large plain oval for the inside. I mounted it up with some small pieces of foam and added Cosmic Shimmer pearl PVA glue dots to the inside edge of the oval. I cut five of the small die in the Aster Flower Topper set and inked each one while it was still in the die with Victorian Velvet. I added a large pearl to all the centres and mounted them above and below my frame. I cut a dozen of leaves from the Floral Tag set and arranged them around all the flowers for interest. I dyed some American seam binding using the Victorian Velvet ink and added some pearls to the bow to use with my flowers. I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with one of the ribbon banner dies, added some more ink and mounted it in the centre of my Oval frame. I pierced the edges of the card to frame the entire piece and finish it off.
