Dare to be Fabulous!

Hey everyone!

Well yesterday I said that I would do some baking and then some crafting! Well unfortunately my mixer is on the fritz so that meant I had all day to craft! So far I have only managed one card. But I love it!

Doesn’t it just hit you right in the face! LOL! I know I have used some retired product, but I felt that these suited this card perfectly. The sentiment is from the Fabulous Flowers set which of course is retired but I think it and the medallion were made for each other. LOL! I also used the Baja Breeze corduroy brad but the ribbon is still in vogue! I made the scallop edge by punching a few 3/4″ circles. I love the larger scallop look! What do you think?

You may be wondering what the funny looking lines are….well I had a play with the cracked glass technique. This is where you do layer upon layer of clear embossing over the top of the stamped image. I have done about seven layers using the SU Clear embossing powder. I then placed it in the freezer for a few minutes, pull it out and then bend the card to ‘crack’ the embossing. After cracking it a few times I then used a sponge to wipe Soft Suede ink all over the cracks. This shows the cracks more clearly.

I plan on making some more cards this evening in between cooking a roast dinner. So best be going!

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. This is an absolutely gorgeous card and I just love what you have done with the ribbon. The colours are also gorgeous and a big WOW on the technique of the cracked glass. I love everything about this card.

  2. HI Kirsty,

    there so many wow elements on this – I don’t know where to start!! Love how you partially ruffled the ribbon and the off centre medallion on the vertical top note, and the colours – I could just keep going….

  3. I’m going home tonight (actually probably tomorrow night as my SU order which inlcludes the Medallion stamp hasn’t arrived yet) to give this card and technique a go for myself!!
    I love it!! The colour combi is one of my faves and the way you’ve pulled it all together is absolutely divine!! xxx

  4. I LOVE this card alot Kirsty – can feel a CASE coming along. It’s just beautiful – I’ve never done this technique, but it looks lovely – must try it. Thanks so much for this amazing piece of inspiration. x
