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!
