Hello, its the weekend again and December already! - the time goes so quickly. A Christmas card today.
This is a bit smaller than A6 as the main image is small. I started out with a small piece of leftover gloss card that I had embossed with Versamark ink and clear powder. The stamp I had used was Cover A Card, Tree Line, and I had not embossed it properly when I did it a while ago. So, I had cut away the outside pieces that went wrong and popped this in my bits box. I pulled it out, inked it with Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet and Chipped Sapphire Distress inks then wiped the excess off the embossing. I love the more delicate and smooth effect it has on gloss card! I wasn't sure what to do with it then I remembered my fabulous, unused, Crafts Too Embossing Folder - perfect! I embossed it through my Big Shot then glued it onto a purple card base I made. I carefully used a one inch punch to make the squares which I kept in line to give the effect I wanted. I glued three squares in a line in the central panel of the embossed piece. I added Cosmic Shimmer Diamond Sprinkles with a Quickie Glue Pen for lots of sparkle. The original piece that I had was big enough to give me six squares so I have two cards, Yay!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Less is More - Emboss Resist Technique
Pixies Snippets Playground - use snippets - my stamped images were snippets and the pieces of card I used for the embossing were leftovers too!
Thank you so much for visiting me - its really appreciated! Have a fabulous weekend.
Take care. Christine xxx
