This card was created for Barb's WS and Penny Black's swap.
The image of this festive Christmas ornament ball and the sentiment are from Penny Black's
clear acrylic set : 'Banner of Joy'
Absolutly love this PB set I recently purchased for just a few dollars at a Stamping Garage sale at my favorite craft store 'Paper Nation'.
Here are some details of my new favorite CB folder 'Flourish' ,from Sizzix
I never used gold foil before (and probably can't afford to use it too often either)
but oh myyyy...I DO like embossing with it for sure!
The end results look so rich and elegant...at least to me it does :o)
This is a close up of the gold embossed ornament...in these picture the color looks more like a
deep rose'...but in reality is a deep red....
it is nestled atop a black punched out circle which in turn was positioned atop a gold circle.
Golden thread finishes up the festive look...
I left the inside pretty simple with double circles (I used two nesties and a golden pen to trace them) encasing a festive embossed sentiment .
I hope my friend Barb likes these cards...
Stay tuned, I also have a Whipper Snapper card to upload...*wink*
Please let me know what YOU think... also...
what else can you do with foil?? Please share! :o)
Blessings to all!
Tecnique: wet embossing, dry embossing, detailed cutting.
