You're The Best

 Hi bloggers!  I was having a bit of a play with the Engraving Board here.  Lovely fun stuff to use with either dies or embossing folders like I have done here.  I cut a piece of the gold core engraving board and embossed it with my A4 Basketweave embossing folder.  Using a fine sandpaper block, I sanded away the embossed area of the design, which exposed the gold core and left the black in the deep recesses of the embossed background.  I did a bit of matting and layering with some white and black card to help pop the design.  I cut a piece of silky crush ribbon down the centre and wrapped it around the bottom of the card, securing the ends around the back of my background.  Next I used the largest sizes of the Adorning Squares and cut a decorative piece for my focal element.  I used the smaller square to emboss the very centre for a bit more detail.  I used the largest outer die to cut a black piece to go behind to show off all the detail.  I stamped my sentiment by using a Clear Perfect Medium pad and heat embossed it with Cosmic Shimmer Gold detail powder.  I used the smaller square again to cut out my sentiment.  While still in the die, I lightly inked it with  Black Soot Distress ink for a shadow.  I mounted the larger square and the smaller square in opposite orientations for an interesting effect.  I tied a double bow with the white silky crush ribbon and added it to the side of my focal element with a bit of black tulle behind it.  I made a gold rose using the soft gold card and following the tutorial on the top of the blog.  I added it to the centre of my bow and two black crystal stick pins as accents.  I finished the card by added some flatback pearls to the corners and  a double mat of the soft gold card and pierced the inner mat with my piercing ruler.  A really easy card to recreate, but with very decadent results!  Finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.  All for now, Sue x

Hi Sue

Lovely elegant card today.I have been using these dies and they look fabulous when cut out. must try using the middle piece like you just to emboss after the main design is cut out. the gold embossing board looks fantastic in old with the black. Fantastic card without the bows and pins for men. Hope you are having a rest while in the states, and come back to us full of more fantastic ideas.

Hello Sue,
Love this card I think it was on your stand at Ally Pally (or one very like it) and thought it was stunning, remember asking you if the gold was Giilding Wax - you kindly gave me (and everyone else watching) a demo with the engraving board .... for me it was an instant WOW !!!! Managed to put Gold and Silver and 3 embossing boards in my basket + + + Hay Hoo its only my childrens inheritance!
Thank you for everything - demos - time - blog etc. etc.

Hi Sue. WOW, WOW, WOW !! I think today's card is just gorgeous !! I love the basket weave background folder. I bought this one and some engraving foil at Alley Palley but still could not get hold of a sanding block set !! I will have to wait till next payday now !! This card looks so classy and sophisticated. I loved the other card you made with the adorning squares and I was horrified to see you put that one up for auction because it is just to gorgeous to give away !!! I know I could not afford to bid on it but whoever gets that one will be a very lucky person !! I hope you are having a good time with your mum. Lots of love Tres x x x

Dear Sue I love this card I especially love the background using the engraving foil card and embossing folder I bought the foil card as a result of seeing this being used by you on c&c I wasn't going to buy it until I saw you embossing it then sanding it back. What an amazing effect so expensive looking.
Love the adorning squares centrepiece and gold flower is exquisite. A wonderful card.

Sorry I'm posting late I thought I had posted until just now when I checked back!
