I wish you and your families a happy and blessed Easter.
Two of the features I’ve used on today’s card were inspired by one card I received as a swap last Sunday and one that was part of the Show and Tell display.
I know I keep referring back to last Sunday’s Team Training, but we really do get a lot out of the day.
First is Elaine Kerr’s swap card I shared with you yesterday as well as a card that was on Show & Tell at last Sunday’s training.
The feature I’ve picked out from Elaine’s card is the dry embossing – please see photograph 5.
The feature I picked out from the Show & Tell card was the heat embossing on the Designer Series Paper – please see photograph 6.
Unfortunately I don’t know who made this card so can’t give credit where credit’s due!
This isn’t something I’ve ever tried before but I think it looks brilliant on the card shown here and couldn’t wait to try it.
For my card, I’ve dry embossed a double frame around the image.
I love the look of it but it was a struggle to get the positioning correct – success came on my third attempt!
This is the layer I dry embossed.
I also cut a piece of the Perfectly Artistic Designer Series Paper (DSP) to go inside the embossed frame leaving a quarter inch gap all round.
I stamped the bicycle image from the Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Pedal Pusher Stamp Set onto the DSP using Versamark.
Then I heat embossed it using the Black Embossing Powder.
I used Tempting Turquiose, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate and Crushed Curry Marker Pens to colour in the bicycle.
I added the two birds from the same stamp set.
The sentiment is from the stamp set Rose Wonder.
I used my Black Archival Ink but I think I should have re-inked it first!
That’s about it for today. Until tomorrow, happy Easter and happy crafting!
