I'm having a lovely crafty day and this is the third card I'm sharing today. Please scroll down to see my previous posts from earlier today.
I decided to create something a bit different to that which I have been doing of late and grabbed a few old faithfuls that have been in my stash for years.....pearlescent card, a brass stencil and my old friend, the light box! My poor light box has been in the back of my craft cupboard since the day I discovered embossing folders and purchased my Big Shot. But there is something very therapeutic about embossing by hand and the results are always great on pearlescent card.
This next pic highlights the shimmer of the pearlescent cardstock...
I used a pearlescent card base I had in my stash then used a second one (so I had a matching panel) to hand emboss the flower and ladybirds by hand through the brass stencil using my light box. I then cut this out with a flag die and used a slightly larger flag die to cut some lime green pearlescent card. I used a darker green cardstock to die cut the 'hello'. Next I created two rows of double score lines across the card base, adhered the die cut word between them and layered up the flags. I'm not sure I love this card but I certainly enjoyed creating it.
