A nice technique.

Hello. With the weather outside being wet and windy I am managing to get a number of cards made and have managed to keep my promise of adding another blog.  Here goes.

I love learning different techniques and this is one of my favourites.

I took some Teal coloured Foundation Card and embossed it using the Sue Wilson Bed of Roses embossing folder.  I then spread Decadent Teal Cosmic Shimmer Sparkle Texture Paste over the whole of it and left it to dry.  This took about a couple of hours.

I cut a base in white using the biggest die from the Sue Wilson Canadian Collection Toronto die.  Using the same die together with the next largest die and cut this out on some teal card and added it to the white base.  I then used the third die and cut out the middle so it looked like a frame.  I added mounting foam to this.

I used the next die down and cut it out of white card.  I stamped the sentiment onto teal card in Clear Perfect Medium and embossed in Silver.

I matted and layered some teal and white card to my card base.  The Bed of Roses background, once dry, was cut into three sections and mounted with foam to the card.  The frame was then added and the white pattered card glued to the centre before the sentiment was added.

I finished the card off with some embellishments

Hope you like it.

One for the men

I have been away from this blog for far too long due to life becoming hectic.  I am now intending to post at least once a week so here goes with my latest contribution.

I always find making cards for men very difficult but Sue Wilson has got the answer with her Heraldic Square die.

I used pearlised card in colours brown and silver, embossing the silver card with Picnic Plaid embossing folder by Die'sire.

I then cut out 2 Heraldic Squares and set them together using foam pads before stamping and embossing the sentiment onto brown card and placing in the middle of the Heraldic Square before placing it into the centre of the card.  Four corners where then placed in each corner.

Completed card measures 7" x 7"

Happy crafting.x
