Evening crafty folk. 28 days. There's a film about that - mind you was it 28 days later?
Back to the job in hand Pujol. Okay, a relatively quick card today, well it should have been, but I did end up faffing a little. I decided to use part of an old Kanban kit I had:
I selected this pretty panel
And decided to emboss it, to add texture.
I couldn't remember what the folder was called...its this one:
I selected a sentiment which matched the cut away corners of the panel die cut, and added a little distress ink to the panel. I applied the ink lightly so as to only ink the embossed image
As usual, I had a play to decide on the layout of the card
I'm looking forward to being able to re-open my web site - I have so much ribbon! This is one of them, it's sheer yet has a stunning sparkle
I tied a bow in the centre to pull the ribbon in - this is where the sentiment will sit
I was going to cut a slit in the card to thread the ribbon - but because I had embossed the card, attempting to cut it with a craft knife just ended with me tearing the card. Plan. If you want to cut the card, do it prior to embossing. Instead I just stuck the ribbon with double sided sticky on the back of the panel
I found some pretty tonic die cuts, which I feel frame the panel beautifully. I then decided I would plum for some flowers as well
The die cuts are to white so i colour tinted them with the distress ink. I also added gold gilding wax. Actually, I added gilding wax to everything.
I decided to cut a frame from the brown card
And then cut a piece of gold to mat and layer onto. I then stuck this onto a co-ordinating card, and distressed the edges
I used two more little pieces of ribbon for the corners, which I pulled in using double sided tape
Have a little look...
Change my mind :) More flowers were added
And more gilding wax. The pebeo gilding wax is just so nice. And here we have our finished card for this evening...
