My Bloggie BFFs
Happy day my dear friends.
I consider all of you my BFFs.
And yes, I can have more than one in Blogland.
We are special like that.
I have a card for you and the current Hero Arts March 2012 challenge.
Using lots of flowers.
I did some things I haven’t done in quite a while. All those flowers are embossed. The ones on the background are heat embossed in white and the popped up one is stamped in grey ink and then embossed in clear. Don’t have the right color of embossing powder? Just use your favorite ink and then emboss in clear. Looks great every time.
And, this is one TALL card.
I think it is 8 x 4, but I can’t remember exactly. Oh wait, yes I do. It is 8.5 by 4.25… I used a standard sheet of cardstock to make it. Simply trimmed it down to 8.5 x 8.5 square and then folded in half. Turns into one BIG card for me but will still fit in a business envelope.
I love all the colors too. Anything with blue/green and grey has my fancy right now. Plus, that flower turned out super pretty too. I stamped and embossed 3 flowers, used some Copic markers to color them and then trimmed and layered it all together.
This weekend was a bit of a bust card wise. I tried really hard to create something for the new Paper Crafts call but my mojo didn’t want to wake up. I was struggling something fierce and honestly… they are not my best creations. I’ve had to redo one of them 3 times and it is still not really working right. Ugh. But I gave it a shot and if they don’t get picked up, I guess you won’t have to wait 6 months to see them. Ha.
