A Faux Embossed Card


Good Morning Ladies, 

How can we be on the last day of January? I can't believe its only 4 days to Sophie & Lucy's Birthday,  they are quite excited mind.  I had no idea what to get them this year, with their Birthday being so close to Christmas it makes it even harder.  So I had a brain wave (I still get them occasionally)🤣

I thought I would sort all three girls Birthdays at once, so I booked for the 4 of us to go and see Moulin Rouge in London,  its next week too so they don't have to wait long, all three of them love musicals so it should be a lovely day, it only opened in January so I was surprised that I got seats, Becca is going to organise something nice for dinner too. 

Janet I hope you get your insurance quote sorted today, so that you can get on with the repairs before anymore bad weather xxx

Today's card is one I started a week or so ago, I created a 'Faux Embossed ' background buy laying down die cuts of the same colour card as the base card, in this case Petal Pink.  I used the Artistically inked stamps and matching dies.  I die cut a narrow gold circle to arrange my focal element around,  O

I atamped and die cut the flowers and leaves and arranged them around the left hand side of the circle, I kept the card simple and added the sentiment on a banner tucked under the flowers on one side. It is one of my favourite colours so its no surprise that I like this card. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day,

Love and hugs to all of you

  2. Hi everyone
    Fabulous card, and I love the faux embossed technique. It’s on my list of things to try ☺️
    A lovely idea for you and the girls to celebrate their Birthdays. A perfect ‘girly’ day out 😊
    I’m just waiting for the washing machine to finish, then I’ll be crafting. Got a couple of ideas for this weeks challenge. After our busy weekend, I’m looking forward to getting my craft stuff out and having a play.
    Have a good day everyone. Sending hugs to you all xxx

  3. Hello, it’s cold and windy here, but unusually the storms went north. Hope you can get your roof sorted soon Janet, and that you had no more damage last night.

    Sandra your card is really great, I also have not tried that technique, but think I will have a go today.

    Hoping to start this weeks challenge, after I’ve contacted the GP. to get an appointment about my breathing, I expect it will take ages to get through, and will I get an appointment.

    Have a good day, Lilian

  4. Hi everyone
    Nice card Sandra. Hope you and the girls have a wonderful time seeing the musical together.
    Janet, hopefully you get the roof fixed asap. We had storm winds during the night but nothing like yours.
    I had to be careful open the car door when we went out this morning for my physio,had enough with trapped thumb. I'm going to a gym tomorrow. Hoping they not give me too much and they understand a person with Fibromyalgia.
    Have fun crafting ladies. I'm still waiting for mojo to come back, grrr ;/
    Many hugs to you all, Maria xx
