Do you times when you injure yourself a lot - cut your fingers, stab your thumb, bang your head - well as I seem to be in the middle of one of these phases I decided against getting the embossing powder out - firing up the heat gun could have had nasty consquences hehe
Once again it was a two card week for me. I made the first a few days ago, but then yesterday I had another idea and made this one
Both pieces of embossed card are made as "wraps" - In the end I did stick the cream wrap down, but the yellow one is loose - I left it that way because I couldn't decide where the strip looked best - I took a few photos of it in different positions and decided somewhere in the b=middle of the the cream section looked best.
Making them as wraps meant I had to be brave and cut the folders apart so that I could do the embossing lengthwise. Now though I can tape them up either way to use them, can't I?
Materials and Tools
Smooth cream card blank
Bazzill card: 2x shades of green, Cream, Yellow
Scraps of pink paper fr the flower centres
Embossing folders both by Cuttlebug
Die: Honeysuckle Border (Memory Box)
The main problem with using embossing is getting a decent photo, I must have taken about 20 of this card before giving up and waiting for OH to bail me out.
So I had a little lesson in photographic lighting last night - let's just hope I can remember for next time, or it'll be "I've told you all this before....." and I'll be sent to stand in the corner
I'll blog the other card another day - after I've had a go at getting a better photo than the one I managed pre-lesson ;)
So that's it for today - I hope you'll head over to the Daring Blog to see the wonderful cards the team have made this week. I love it when the blog goes live and I see it "properly" for the first time - all the cards look so fab grouped together in a lovely long row!
Stay warm and safe in this chilly old weather - hope you have a good weekend
