Good morning to you all. Welcome to my new followers and readers. Just a quick gripe before we go any further about blogger behaving badly. It seems that there is a general issue with trying to follow/join any blogs. It is not just my blog. It seems that lots of people are having this problem. We need a solution - FAST! It is ruining everyone's experience in blogland!!
Today for my Creative Expressions® project I have used two of the very lovely scent bottle stamps along with a couple of embossing folders to create a soft, subtle card perfect for Mother's Day.
I started by stamping the bottles with white embossing powder onto some brown Kraftcard. They were cut out and then shaded with some distress ink to give them a bit of dimension.
Next I took some of the lovely Milk coloured Foundation card and ran it through my embosser with the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder Flora. While I was there I embossed a piece of Sand coloured Foundation card with the Dainty dots embossing folder. I cut the embossed pieces to give me 3 different sizes for layering. I took a Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy distress ink and added highlights to the embossed side of the 2 outer pieces and to the de-bossed side to the other, middle, piece as well as a brief swipe over the polka dot embossed card.
Next step was to measure each of these embossed pieces and then cut a piece of the brown Kraftcard just slightly larger. Using a sharp blade or the cutting edge of a pair of scissors, drag carefully along the edge so as to roughen up the edges of the Kraftcard. The trick is to make the ragged edge only just bigger than the embossed piece, it should fit fairly snugly like a frame.
Just to add a little more interest I wrapped some cord around the panels before layering it all up! Of course it needed a sentiment to round it all off and what better than the message Pamper yourself?
