How are you all ... well, I hope and enjoying yourself.
I'm still stealing time from what I should really be doing to make a card or two, though working with a much reduced stash and crafty arsenal.
This quick and simple card was made just so that I could try out the embossing folder ... for the first time. It's one of a set of two Sizzix Textured Impressions - the Folksy Circle & Fun set - that has been sadly neglected.
I embossed a square of deep pink Core'dinations, Aged Wine, and then rubbed it over with an emery board to reveal the paler pink inner core. The edges were roughed up with scissors, as was the green patterned paper - from Docrafts Happy Days collection - used for the base layer.
The topper was made by stamping Hero Arts Flourish Spray on to a snippet of smooth white card - Neenah Solar - with Archival black ink. I used a selection of pink and green Memento pens to colour the flowers and leaves. I found a cArtUs circle die the perfect size for the centre of the Folksy Circle.
Embellishments are the butterfly, cut using another cArtUs die set, and some pink and green pearls - Melissa Frances.
It has been a wee while since I've been over to Di's playground, that's Pixie's Snippets Playground of course, but I'm off to now submit this card ... and to see how the ducks are doing while she is off sunning herself in exotic parts :)
Not long to the weekend now. We are planning to take some time out on Saturday, taking a run up the coast to Greenock to a model railway exhibition. The EM and SIL are
I hope you too have something equally entertaining lined up for the weekend.
Take care and happy crafting,
