Todays card is a bit Ooh La La!
I stamped the Lingerie stamp From Creative Expressions Vintage Lingerie Stamp Set.
onto red card and heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Clear powder, I then cut it out, put a strip of red line (strong) tape along the bottom of the corset and ruched some ribbon across it, you can just see it if you look closer. I then mounted this onto a larger die from the CE decorative Basics (b), in black card and covered with a sticky sheet and some Ebony Ice, I then mounted this onto the next layer which is from Matting Basics (a) Creative Expressions, in red and covered with a sticky sheet and red superfine glitter. I then backed this with by ruching around it with American seam binding in black to compliment the die cut, again using red line tape.
I embossed a square of red card with the Cascading hearts A4 embossing folder CE, and matted onto a piece of black card and then onto the 8 x8 base card. Before sticking down I ran a length of American seam binding down the length of the card at the side and added a messy bow and topped it with a red dazzler and added a couple of stick pins that I made myself to compliment the colour scheme. at the top corner I embossed a Just rite stamp saying 'Happy Valentines Day and die cut with a heart die from Spellbinders, I added it onto the top of the ribbon with a couple of black feathers underneath it to continue the 'boudoir' theme! I finished the corset with a tiny red rose and tiny black bow underneath.I then added a couple of bits of black pearl swirls to break up the back ground.
I hope you like the card, I understand it won't be to everyone's taste but you have to get out of that comfort zone every once in a while!
I shall be able to blog again tomorrow as our
trip to Ipswich was cancelled, due to Sophie having an upset
watch after the kittens, also as Bella still hasn't had her stitches out I still worry about her wound and when those two fight then don't look like they are playing!
So a quiet weekend at home for us...bliss!
Happy Birthday Pat, hope you have a lovely day xxxxx
Huge Hugs to all of you,
