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! I started by embossing a piece of coconut white card with the Provencale Lace embossing folder for texture. Once embossed, I very lightly added some Victorian Velvet Distress ink across the top with a smoothie to add just a hint of colour to the background. Next I cut the Auckland die out of white card and backed it with some card from my stash (called Strawberry and Cream). I cut two of the Magnolia Adornments in white and turned the Auckland to a diamond orientation, adding the adornments to the sides. I stamped the sentiment and cut a frame for it using the cutting edge from the Auckland and the the Maggie die set. I added some foam to it and centred it over the sentiment then trimmed away thee excess around the edge. I seated it in the middle of the card and cut three butterflies from the Thank You Circle set to add as accents. I finished the card in my usual manner with piercing and matting. The finished dimensions are 7" x 8" in size.
