For the last post of October (where has October gone) I decided to use one of the new Dreamweaver embossing folders. I was very impressed with the depth of the embossed image. With Christmas only 8 weeks away this is another really quick and easy card which I think is pretty. The bonus is that it didn't take long to create. My colouring was deliberately blurred as I wanted the design to look like the lights were shining through the tree.
So here is my project
This is what you will need:-
Dreamweaver Embossing folder FG651
White and black card stock
Deep lavender coloured paper
Different colour and sized self adhesive gems
Colorbox pigment ink pad Gypsy
Big Shot die cutting machine (or machine of your choice)Gold ink pad
This is what to do:-
1 Take a piece of white card and place in the embossing folder and put this through your machine.
2 Remove the card from the folder and using stencil brushes apply the colour from the Gypsy ink pad. Apply the colour gently as you can always add colour but you can't take it away. I applied the colour using the rouging technique.
3 Once the colour has been applied trim around the embossed design leaving about 1/8th inch border.
4 Take a selection of different coloured and sized self adhesive gems and attach them where the dots are embossed.
5 Put the card together and finish off with 3 pearl self adhesive gems in the top and bottom opposite corners of the card. Tie a ribbon around the spine of the card.
There is your card, quite pretty.
