This is for my sister's birthday on Monday. I have some nice black cardstock with a finely ribbed finish and thought it about time I used it so I have done lots of gold embossing on it.
Crafty Ann's Challenge 6 is Embossing and this will be the second card I've entered.
The black top panel is edged with a fine peel-off border then layered onto gold mirri card with foam tape
I don't know what my sis will think of being given a black card but it does look rather nice...if I say so myself.
Unfortunately I haven't done a very good job with the photo...it does look nicer in real life....honest.
The double layer of the butterfly wings are shaped and held up nicely thanks to a generous blob of silicone.
I've added some bling on the tips of the antennae and down the b/fly's body.
The 'sister' sentiment oval took some doing....but I managed it by printing the word on to some cream pearly card and then quickly embossed it...cut around it and used it as a template on a piece of the black then cut around it with fancy scissors.
These two are layered together and fixed to the last one with foam pads.
The larger oval was printed on the reverse of some gold mirri card and edged with more of the fine peel-offs. I did actually cut it quite smoothly but the peel-offs match the top layer as well as hide any unevenness there might have been.
Thank you for stopping by...I love to read your comments...so 'thank you' if you have time to leave one.
