Hi there blog friends! I have a card today and new candy today for you. I hope either one or the other will appeal to you! The card for today's post was fun for me because it was a little bit different. I was trying to get the gold and copper crocheted ribbon to work together on this card so I used a metallic gold cardstock that I embossed with the Grand Impressibilities. I lightly sanded it and then inked the embossed areas with Vintage Photo Distress ink. I was pleased that the vintage photo ink picked up the copper quite nicely. I cut a large lacy circle for the background and cut it in half, mounting it behind my embossed panel. I cut two more of the smaller sized lacy circles for my focal element. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with a fancy tag die then inked it lightly with vintage photo. I added a bow of black vintage ribbon and topped it with a flower made from the copper crochet ribbon. I added a few more flowers, one from the gold and one from the copper ribbon with a few foliage sprigs. Black rhinestone swirls finished the piece off.
If the card isn't your cup of tea, how about this lot of blog candy? Five stamp sets, Tim Holtz numerals, TH grunge board, Adirondack ink pad, archival ink pad, acrylic block, rhinestone swirls, two distress inks, two mounted rubber stamps, two Cosmic Shimmer embossing powders and a huge pile of ribbons!
