Simple Beauty - card
I have been so sick and now my poor babies are sick... totally my fault! I have had a sniffly nose, coughing, high temperature...the lot! So as you can imagine I needed to get my mojo back. Today was a gorgeous sunny day and I decided to make a card in pretty colours.
It is a one layer card, simply embossed with an embossing folder and stamps that came free with the Papercraft Essentials Magazine.Thank you for that! I love it!
I dry embossed a white cardstock, standard 8.5" x 5.5" size, and used my Carran D'Ache aqua pencils to colour in the raised areas. It is simple to do, just hold your pencil almost laying down sliding over the raised areas. I always use two shades of each colour to give the overall coloured look more depth.
I wanted to keep the card simple so as opposed to using any embellishments I accentuated the butterfly and the flowers with Glossy Accents by Ranger.I think it gave it just the perfect amount of 'bling'.
I will be sending this card to my dear friend who I love very much, she's amazing... I won't tell you to whom, I want it to be a surprise! :)
I have just found out that I have been picked in Top 3 in a cardmaking challenge over at Kaboodle Doodle Challenge Blog (click on the link to see the post) so I'm feeling really chuffed, hehe :)
