Wow, can't believe it's been so long since I posted! It's not that I haven't been doing any crafting-I actually made 35 Christmas cards over the last couple weeks. The local Michaels store did a couple workshops to make Christmas cards to send to the troops. I made a few at the workshops, but made a bunch more a home, too. I have to figure out how to do a slide show on here, then I will post some of those pics.
This card I made for the Crazy for Challanges #110: One-Layer CAS – cards with the base of the card as the only “layer” today! Only exception is cutting out images and/or one die-cut embellishment.
I actually made 3 cards following this theme, but the first 2 I wasn't satisfied with. This one worked the best for me (I'll include the other 2 below so you can compare).
I embossed the base with Cuttlebug Grace's frame embossing folder. The stamp is from a new Recollections christmas set. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession CL44 Christmas Sentiments Clear stamp set. I stamped with Colorbox Evergreen tree and used Ranger Rainbow Sparkle embossing powder. I added some green glitter domes to the corners, and some simple gold line stickers to frame the image.
These 2 cards are the ones I wasn't so pleased with-they're okay, but not my best. Used the same stamp and another from the set :-) I tried to emboss the frame by drawing in the lines with and embossing pen and using silver embossing powder. My hand is not steady enough to get the lines even-so I'm not pleased with this. On the other, the image didn't emboss very well. Oh, well, someone will like them ;)
