Hi Everyone, Once again thank you to everyone who entered our 'Pretty in Pink' Challenge there were some gorgeous entries and to see if made the top 3 please check the Ooh La La Challenge blog
Our theme this time is ....
That can be dry, heat embossing or even faux embossing so long as embossing is featured on your project I have used all three on mine.
I used an image from the bonus images folder on The 'Yesterday's Memories' CD
To purchase a copy please click on the image below
I printed the topper and the matching backing paper onto white card then cut a square of the backing paper to fit an 8x8 card and matted this onto gold pearl paper and trimmed it to leave a narrow border.
I used ranger embossing ink around the edge of topper and heat embossed it with fairy tale gold embossing powder from 'papermania'. I then matted it onto the gold pearl paper and trimmed it to leave a narrow border.
I cut a panel of cream pearl paper and embossed this using the 'chains' embossing folder from Tattered Lace and I wrapped a piece of red satin and red velvet ribbon round the panel and matted it onto gold pearl paper.
I layered the panels up and tucked the corner of the topper under the ribbon.
The ornaments and bell are faux embossed they are actually die cut lattice ornaments layered onto the same colour of paper to give an embossed look to them.I threaded them all with sparkly thread and 'hung' them at different heights fastening the loose ends of thread over the back of the main panel before securing it to a cream card blank.
I added a red organza bow and some red gems. I added red Gems to the topper and finished off with die cut and embossed Christmas roses and some pine branches leaves and pine cones.
So love embossing Ali - what a super theme! Lovely card too, the embossed baubles look lovely, JxReplyDelete
