....making Christmas cards at the moment......
You know when you purchase a magazine and there is as 'free' gift with it - well, this set of cards came from one of those and it had 6 cards with a printed background already, and some foil sheets, along with a great embossing folder - yep, all in the one set. So I made up the six cards this afternoon. Even if I sold them for $3 a card I would pay for the magazine, and still have the folder to use again as well as some extra foil.
Here are the six cards completed - some follow the magazine suggestions and some don't
Some were the same because I wanted to see how the foil worked with the folder - nice and crisp outlines and I was able to cut off the sentiment and reattach where I wanted it to go.
Luxury ribbon from a gift!
This one required the foil to be cut up and glued to card and then attached - good idea that woked quite well so that's added to the memory banks!
This one had a white circle in the middle so I cut that out and put some foil behind it - simple!
The first one - just followed the magazine and added some bling
Stamped and embossed in green SU powder into the white space printed on the card, added a strip of washi tape and a Hilde pointsettia that I had coloured recently and fussy cut out. I made two of these nearly the same - Hilde flower coloured slightly differently.
Then I cut the front off one card, die cut the centre from the circle and made my first shaker card, using an image from LOTV that I stamped and coloured with Copics ages ago.
I must say once I remembered to put the acetate on FIRST before laying the dimensional blocks around the edge of the circle things went swimmingly and I enjoyed making it.
This last card would suit the current challenge over at
I will enter this one in the following challenges:
