My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

3 April 2011

Floral Fantasy

Hello again - here's my second post for today.  This card is a little different as I was experimenting.  My fab friend Keryn sent me some images recently and one of these was embosed in white embossing powder, so I decided to make it stand out a little by colouring the unembossed areas in and cutting it out with a nestie, so I would love to know what you think as I'm a little unsure with how this one turned out.

Card Ingredients:-

Hero Arts Large Blossom Stamp Embossed in White EP
Sakura Gel Pens in Blue & Green
DCWV Cardstock
Die Cut Greeting
American Crafts Ribbon

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Polkadoodles 13 No Printed Backing Papers
