Just a Little Copper…

Hi Everyone?

How are you all today? We’ve finally got some rain here in Yorkshire, its coming down quite heavy so I might need a boat by school pick up time. Today’s card is just a quick one to show you how a little copper can turn one of the Memories and More cards into something beautiful.

This background card came from the Colour Theory Memories and More pack which is perfect for creating projects around the different seasons. This was one of my favourite cards as I just loved the leaf outlines on it. To make it extra special I added a few more leaves from the Colourful Seasons stamp set and embossed with copper embossing powder .

I also added one of the fabulous greetings to the card as well and did a bit more embossing. I love the sentiments in this set and bought it more for them than the images, although I’m also a sucker for snowflakes.

To finish the card off I added a length of copper trim down the side for some extra copper and mounted onto a Crushed Curry card base. Beautiful. quick and easy I love this card.

I’m really looking forward to using the Memories and More cards on some scrapbooking projects….I just need to print some photos so watch for those coming soon.

Happy Crafting

Thoughtful Branches Day5 – Sparkle Tree Card

Today’s card features the wonderful Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, which I’ve only just got my hands on and boy do I love it! It’s so sparkly, I can see me ordering many, many packs of this stuff.

I simply created a 5″ square card base with Night of Navy, added a layer of the glimmer paper and another layer of Night of Navy cardstock. Tree was cut from inside the glimmer paper matt as I don’t want to waste any of this lovely paper. The thank you greeting, and stars were stamped in white craft and embossed with a mixture of white embossing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. A little tip, when embossing with white powder on dark card always use your embossing buddy first to remove static, I didn’t here and it shows.
