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! Today's card started with an embossed background. I used a piece of coconut white card an embossed it with the Climbing Vines embossing folder. Next I cut the Greek Island border out of pale green card (from my stash). I rubbed enchanted gold gilding wax over the top of it to bring out the detail. Using the Kefalonia die, I cut and embossed creating a frame. The debossed elements from the die recess into the card when embossed and then I lightly rubbed Bundled Sage distress ink over the top while still in the die. I added mounting foam to the back of the frame. I stamped the sentiment in black and covered it with a sticky adhesive sheet. I coated it with clear micro beads then seated the frame over it (with extra glue on the mounting foam). I attached it to the bottom of the card and added a pearl swirl across the top of the card. Finally, I completed the card with a pierced white mat layer, a thin pale green mat and a final white mat layer. The finished dimensions are 7 1/2" x 9" in size.
