A very quick post with a very quickly made card. I haven't been up to much crafting this week but really wanted to join in with a couple of challenges.
I have to be honest and say that I wasn't going to blog this card cause I am not very happy with it. I started by embossing the smaller piece of purple card with a Sizzix embossing folder. The 'Thank You' die, which was free with a magazine, was cut with gold card as were the little flowers which were also free with a magazine. I glued them to the purple card then layered onto a mat of gold card then on to the purple card base. Then I decided to add some gold gilding wax to the embossed areas to give a sheen and that is what I really don't like! I usually like gilding wax but not on this card! So annoying. If I had done it before I had started sticking everything down, I could have just embossed another panel - that will teach me! I noticed when I look at the photo, the gold card is so shiny you can see my fingers reflected in it where I am holding the camera! Sorry about that!
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Less is More - Purple and Gold
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Use Snippets - Mine are the gold card for the all the die cuts and the piece of purple card for the embossing. All from my bits box.
Two fabulous challenges with loads of inspiration!
Thank you so much for visiting me! I will post a card I like more next time! I really appreciate your visit! Have a lovely weekend. Take care. Christine xxx
