Hi guys! If all goes well, this post should be going live just as I am getting ready for CHA in Chicago! Blogger, don't fail me now! The show opens this morning and I am eager to see what is new and exciting in the crafting industry. I so hope to bring back many great finds, keep your fingers crossed for me! Now for today's card, it's another one that I missed posting on the blog from shows in April. I started with this background paper that I really like as it has a very vintage feel to it. The flowers are a bit too pink for me though, so I decided to cover the entire sheet with a self adhesive sticky sheet and cut the Angle Approach die out as an aperture. I like the negative from this die as it is very bold and would work well for men's cards too. Once cut out and removed, I peeled the backing sheet off and poured on the clear micro beads. Those did the trick for me as they toned down the pink enough that I the colour was workable for me. I stamped a piece of taupe card from my neutral card pack with one of the Design Element stamps using Antique Linen. I just wanted a pattern to show through without being too overwhelming. I stamped my sentiment in black in the background. With two of the Floral oval dies, I cut a frame to mount over my sentiment in the centre of my aperture. I cut three of the Moroccan borders and offset them on the bottom of my background. I cut a narrow strip and embossed it with the Elegance embossibility and mounted it with a pink edge above my petticoat borders. I tied a double bow using the champagne coloured frilly edged ribbon and added a fancy button to the centre of it. I added two crystal stick pins to it and pierced the edges of my card to complete it.
