My desky share today shows multiple desks - with the process of making a card for a challenge. The experienced crafters among you, can just skim down the pickies. ;D
To join with What is On Your Workdesk Wednesday pop over to Julia's desk for the deskland world wide hop.
This is my second card as first one I went on memory and the colour wasn’t right!
No worries, I still like it and will rescue it later.I took several things from this image:
1. colours - gold, white and coral or peach pink.
2. shapes - namely spots, floral, and chevrons. So that's what I went with!
1. Stamp + wet embossing with stamped image
|As I'm playing with wet embossing, first use embossing buddy on plain white card (see how to make one here). Next apply Versamark to top side of Darice Chevron embossing folder (gift from Scrappy Mo - thanks Mo!) very generously, dry emboss, add embossing gold powder and heat emboss.|
|Plain snippety piece of card, gold embossed to do border scalloped die cuts with my scalloped rectangle die. One day must buy a scallop border, but these do work fine!|
|Added the two pieces of scallop to border on Chevron folder piece.|
|Here I am at the "well, have these, what next stage?" next step was thought of as a late night idea, after prayer.|
|Next added generous layer of Gold embossing powder (scrap paper underneath to catch the embossing powder).|
|Doesn't this have punch!!! I love it.|
Vellum can be tricky to adhere if nowhere to hide tape, but no worry of that here.
So adhered it to base, THEN added the chevron strip + stamped circle.
|"prayers" is cut three times, the two white ones have double-sided tape on the back, attach for extra dimension underneath the gold die cut.|
|Here's a close up of all that embossing! Triple-wrapped some gold edged twine around the chevron piece before attaching.|
|Lastly - found out last night our pineapple is sprouting again (isn't it cute?), this is the top from our first baby, now growing a pineapple too! It is a brommeliad. To see our earlier pineapples progress and planting of this top - see here.|
And may God bless your day (and especially your Christmas, as we remember Jesus' birth) wherever you may be!
