This was created for today's Ways To Use It Challenge over at Splitcoast. We were to use 'odd numbers' of something on our card. I used 'three' flowers at the bottom left corner and 'three' looped bow.
I used the beautiful stamp set called Enchanted Carousel from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS. It is new for February.
I used my Label One Nestabilities to create the frame. Stamped the horse onto watercolour paper and cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals. I ran a piece of Velum Cardstock through the cuttlebug with the Divine Swirls Embossing Folder. I added Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to all the swirls. I then layered it up onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
I used my Bow Easy to make my triple looped bow. I left the tails very long so I could heat them with the heat gun to get them to crinkle a bit.
Card Supplies:
Stamps: Clear Dollar Stamps~Enchanted Carousel
Paper: Textured Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, Whisper White, Watercolour, Velum
Ink: Same as above, Black Staz-on, Soft Suede, Dusty Durango, Taken With Teal
Accessories: Label One Nesties, Divine Swirls Embossing folder, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, Pearl brad, Ribbon, Heat Gun, Dimensionals, Aquapainter, Markers, Glittered flowers, Scalloped & Circle punches
This card is for a couple I know who just got engaged.
Thanks for looking.
