On Your Special Day

 Morning friends!  Another card done in a favourite combo of grey and custard card.  I started by embossing a white piece of card using my Cascading Hearts embossing folder to give my background some interesting texture.   I stamped the Vintage Floret Frame using a black archival ink pad and cut it out with the matching die set.  I decided to frame it to change the edge shape a bit so I cut a frame using the Radiant Rectangles and custard coloured card.  I glued it to the edge of the Floret Frame, then nipped away any excess that showed.  I cut an Enchanted Labels 28 and cut it to use just the top of the die.  I adhered both of them on the sides of my frame using a bit of Cosmic Shimmer dries clear glue.  I cut out several of the smaller Vintage Floret flowers out of both white and custard card.  I stamped them all with a clear Perfect Medium pad and heat embossed them with Silver Shine embossing powder.  I used two die cuts per flower and offset them, adding a flatback pearl to the centres of each.  I glued them in place to my frame.  I stamped my sentiment and centred it in the opening in the frame.  I tied a messy bow out of seam binding and added a fancy pearl button from the Tim Holtz accoutrement collection.  The card was matted with a custard mat, then a double mat of grey card which I pierced around the edges.  The finished dimensions are 7" x 8 1/2" in size.

As promised, a reminder about my show today which is live from the CHA studio in Las Vegas!  I have some new and exclusive Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps to show you, as well as Emma Lou Beechy, one of the owners will be doing the show with me!   All for now, Sue x

morning Sue
It's only 08.00 here in Burgundy and yet again it's already HOT. Going to be another one of those days.
Beautiful colour scheme and wonderful dies for today's gift.
I had never thought of grey and custard before you showed me the error of my ways but now it's one of my favourite schemes.
A very girlie card but not over the top.
Have a really good day at CHA -I know you will-

Beautiful card, I love the colour combo and the layout. I won't be able to watch your show because I am at the Royal Welsh show in Builth Wells. I have set my recorder so will watch when I get back home. I follow the Heartfelt Creation Blog and love all Emma's demos and samples so look forward to what ideas the two of you come up with they should be amazing.

Love this card, colours are fabulous and the dies - well what can I say - they're brilliant and I would love to have them but will have to do with what is in my stash at the moment - my thinking cap is on again and I'm off for a rummage through my dies.
