A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! A clean and simple sort of card for today. I used the new Linear Leaves embossing folder. It is one of the newer smaller embossing folders so it will fit in any of the machines. I cut the folder along the lines to make a triptych effect and mounted the strip with foam for dimension. I cut the Mosaic leaves out of a piece of white card that I covered with a sticky adhesive sheet, then gilded with Persian Dawn gilding flakes. I used a piece of it to cut the New York tag as well. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out again out of white card, but this time, I nipped away the decorative end pieces and glued it atop the gilded tag. I mounted it in the upper corner of the card. I tied a piece of silver cord around the card and tied a bow over my leaves. I embellished it with a small clear Dazzler. The card was then completed with a white pierced mat, a thin silver mat and a final white mat layer. The finished dimensions are 6 1/2" x 8" in size.
Don't forget to check back tomorrow for all the winners to be posted for the week. All for now, Sue x
