Pretty Purple just because!
I hope you are all well and not in too much pain.
Todays card I made because I fancied doing a purple card today.
I took a piece of Coconut white card and used to Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One to cut
a decorative border to the top and bottom of the card. I then took a piece of purple card and cut it to
fit under the white card, leaving a tiny border and stuck the two together with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue. I cut a Spellbinders Large Floral Oval die out of Coconut White card and then stamped the largest of the Justrite Kindness stamps onto white card and cut it out with the matching Spellbinders Labels Twenty Die, I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink Pad and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then Stamped the 'Just Because ' Justrite sentiment onto a white card cut with Spellbinders Scalloped oval.
To put the card together I wrapped a piece of purple ribbon around the middle of the card and stuck it down at the back of the card and then mounted the Floral Oval onto the card with mounting foam for dimension. I then put the stamped Label 20 on top of that and the scalloped oval with sentiment on top. I made a flower but cutting six of Creative Expressions Classic Rose die cuts out of the same purple card and offset them and pushed a brad through the centre, moistened them with a mister and scrunched them up to look more like a flower, I added two white roses to I for balance and another on to the centre of the bow, which was made from the same ribbon as around the card.
I made a stick pin with a matching coloured bead and added two more and some pearls along the top and bottom of the decorative borders and pearl swirls too.
I hope you like the card today.
Its fun day today as Pat & Sue are coming over! YAY!!!!!
Someone choose a fun topic for the day, it could be anything from craft disasters to worst purchase or something funny.
I look forward to reading your comments.
Love and Hugs
