Hi everybody. I have a Christmas card made with a cut and emboss folder which came free with Papercraft Essentials Magazine No. 192, not normally one that I buy but hubby bought it for me when he had been shopping as a surprise as it was my birthday and we were in lockdown. It has been sitting in a box in which I keep those things which are waiting to be used and it has been waiting for a long time, so thought now was the time to make a card with it.
I embossed it on to a piece of white card and decided to colour the two outer baubles with my Sakura Stardust Pens just very carefully going over the raised parts which worked well using a blue, gold and silver pen and then found a piece of pretty gold embossed vellum with poinsettia images on and cut a piece just a bit bigger than the the white bauble which was the cut part of folder. I placed this over the underside of the aperture and stuck it around the edges, and after colouring the top of the bauble piece gold placed the cut out piece back in the hole behind the vellum and stuck it in place with a couple of pieces of double sided tape to stop it from moving (I left the top covering of the tape in place). I then cut down the piece a bit and used the gold pen round the edges before sticking it to the 6" square card. I finished it with a silver mirri die cut sentiment backed with Stick It adhesive. There is lots of shimmer from the pens which doesn't show up much in the photo but in real life it twinkles very prettily.
Thank you for coming to visit my blog today and I hope to see you again soon.
