Enjoy,

Vintage Masculine Birthday Card

Masculine Birthday card with embossed
clear card stock

I wanted to try a different way of inking clear card stock. I embossed the clear card stock and then used alcohol inks. The effects were amazing and so much fun. This embossing folder is called Handmade Paper by Tattered Lace.

I used alcohol inks on glossy card stock to make the background for my vintage car. A simple design but very fun to create.

I hope you try some of your different embossing folders with this technique. Stay tuned for more backgrounds.

Enjoy!

Butterfly Easel Sympathy Card

I dedicate this card to all of those with genetic illnesses awaiting a medical break through to ease their daily struggles. This week we lost someone to Cystic Fibrosis. She was a mom, wife, sister, daughter, friend and teacher. Words can never be enough to fill the void left by someone you love.

Hug those you love every day and be thankful you have the day with them!

Silver Embossed Elegance

Our focal image today will be an uncolored outline sticker.

Supplies needed:

  • 5 x 6 1/2″ white base card
  • Silver mirror board pieces:  6 ½ x5, 5 5/8 x4 1/8, 3 3/8×3 3/8, 2 3/8 x 2 3/8″, a strip measuring 1 x 6 for your band
  •  White card stock pieces: 6 3/8×4 7/8″ , 5 ½x 4, 3 ¼ x 3 ¼, 2 3/8×2 3/8
  • Embossing folders: Swiss Dots, Leafy Swirl, Daisy

For assembly, I cut all of my pieces first. I embossed all of my white card stock and then mounted them onto my mirror board. The smallest square I did not emboss to showcase my outline sticker.

Great card for an outdoor wedding, shower, birthday or friendship.

Enjoy!
