Someone Special !




A very pink card today !!  Wind is blowing hard outside as I finish this.  The peppermint green card base is 6 x 6 inches and has been matted with some pretty pearlescent print paper.

The chipboard frame was cut using a frames mover and shaper die from TH Sizzix.  This was heat embossed using a Versamark inkpad and a couple of coats of Blond Moments spring tropic lustre embossing powder (this has a fab pearlescent gold overtone, not easy to photograph!).  I have then stamped into it whilst molten with a rubber stamp coated with more Versamark to act as a release.  This has added some texture too !




The frame was stuck in place as shown and the paper flowers in shades of pink towards maroon added at each of two opposite sides of the frame.  The centres have been highlighted with dark brown dimensional pearls.

The dotty embellishments were made on a craft sheet by squeezing dots of Glossy Accents which were then loaded with TuTu Beadazzles and allowed to dry.  Once dry they were peeled off the craft sheet and applied as shown.  I thought they looked very much like the coated jelly's in Liquorice Allsorts !





The pink paper ribbon on the left was embellished with dots of worn lipstick Distress Stickles and stuck in place.




The sentiment was stamped on pink card in Archival sepia ink and edged with the same ink before trimming out and mounting in place with foam pads.  The maroon ribbon bow was added on a foam pad to finish.

You're right - very pink! Looks lovely with the pretty green for contrast and the "liquorice allsorts" embellies look fab!
