I wanted to bring a little elegance to this wedding card so have backed it with lilac card then used a Clarity stamp with Perfect Medium to heat emboss some Centura Pearl card. I punched some flowers and used Liquid Pearl to make dots in the centre, used a Syntego motif as the focal point and finished off with a little white bow.

As the wedding season begins, here is a sneaky peak at a new design about to go on my website. I hope to have it listed within the next few weeks.
The largest layer is Centura pearl in teal and then a layer of the same card in snow white that has been heat embossed with Wow embossing powder, sparkling snow. The hearts have been embossed with roses and the flower is stamped onto paper and heat embossed, cut out and shaped before sticking the layers together. It takes a while to make but feel it will make a lovely keepsake.

The day after she put it up, they came down in the morning to find it all had all slid off the card and was leaning drunkenly on top of the television. They thought it was funny and her hubby stuck it all back on with sticky tack. This incident began my quest for ultra-strong sticky stuff that wouldn’t stick to me or result in my efforts all slipping of the card.
For intricate pieces, needing a fine nozzle, then Cosmic Shimmer Glue is my choice. This bonds really well and is great for making flowers and fixing intricate die cuts. Both these glues dry clear and that is another bonus. Next time I’ll tell you of my latest finds.
