Hello everybody. I have interrupted Christmas card making as I have two Anniversaries this month to make cards for, and no, I haven't finished my Christmas cards yet. I'm afraid, as usual, I started rather late and will be making and posting right up to the last possible date.
For this card I used: Square White Card Blank, White Stamping Card, Chocolate Baroque Bold Snowflake Shadow Stamp, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Kimmy-luvs, Nellie's Border Die, Versamark Ink, WOW Black Twinkle EP, WOW Silver EP, Silver Mirri Card and a Silver Sentiment.
I decided that as this is a December Anniversary I could get away with using the Chocolate Baroque Snowflake Shadow stamp. I really love this stamp because it heat embosses so beautifully, so I stamped it using Versamark Ink and heat embossed using the Black Twinkle EP. (unfortunately this doesn't show up on the photo very well). I then used the Kimmy-luvs Embossing Folder with some white card - I managed to make it wider by matching the pattern and running it through my machine again, luckily it worked quite well. In my stash I found a nice little heart stamp which I got free with Craft Stamper magazine, and using snippets of white card I heat embossed with the Silver EP making two of them as you can see. I also used a scrap/snippet of Silver Mirri card and die cut the Nellie's Border Die, luckily it fitted almost perfectly. I made the card up by cutting both the background pieces in half, mounted them on the white base card and covered the join with the silver border. I then added the two hearts and finished with the sentiment.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop where you have to use snippets/scraps, and as I used some small snippets of white card and silver mirri card. This is for the weekly challenge and my 2nd entry into the special challenge.
