Hello, thank you for stopping by
For this DL card base I die cut the 'Elegant Lace Edger' die set four times in ivory cardstock, twice for the side panels and twice for the top and bottom.  These were then adhered onto black card and fussy cut

I then positioned the base card and stamp into my MISTI and stamped the sentiment with a Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad.  As this is a pigment ink, and stays wet longer, I sprinkled WOW clear embossing powder over the sentiment, removed the excess and heat set

Cosmic Shimmer Acrylic Dries Clear Glue was applied to the backs of all the embellishments prior to adding them to the card front

I stamped a verse onto pale lemon paper and used a punch to create a pretty border down the sides.  I used the same ink pad but omitted the clear embossing powder for the verse

Leave me a comment on today's post if you would like to own this card, and, for the last time, you have until 9.30am Monday morning to comment
There's a LONG explanation at the bottom of this post as to why there is a change in the day

Due to my design team commitments, I'm having to reorganise some of  my blog schedules for 2018, as follows:
Monday15 January
is the new start date for our challenges at Crafty Cardmakers, so my post will be scheduled to view at 1pm starting that Monday and every other Monday whilst I am on the design team
Tutorial Tuesday remains the same and with more video tutorials
is the new 'Freebie Card' day and the winner will be announced on Saturday's blog post
as from 4 January the new challenge for MAWTT begins again for 'Team B' and as I'm also on this design team my blog post will go live at the same time the new challenge starts which is 9am.  This will be every 2 weeks Friday

as from Friday 3 August 'Festive Friday' will begin

Saturday and Sunday
normal blog posts
Of course I will show you new products as well as the gift from craft magazines and I do have lots of video projects planned for 2018
The 3rd design team I'm on is 'A Perfect Time To Craft', but I've probably got you all brain dead by now so I will leave it here and if you have read right to this point  I thank you very much and appreciate you doing so

Until tomorrow....
