Good Morning Ladies,
As you are reading this we will be on our way 'Up North' 🤣 to Barnsley to visit Danielle, its so odd to think it's been almost 2 years since we were last together, probably because we talk every day it doesn’t seem that long, with the lockdown last year we never got to meet up, thank goodness restrictions got lifted, I was so looking forward to seeing her that we decided to go for it on the 1st possible day! We have booked a hotel for tonight so that we can spend some time together tomorrow too.
Today's card is one of Karen's challenge cards that I missed, we obviously chatted too much this past week and I didn't scroll back far enough, I 100% remember you showing me and then when I was writing about Sonia's challenge cards I even remember thinking 'I'm sure Karen did this technique too", frustratingly my mind is not my own right now so please bare with me.
I’ve had a little play after watching Jenny McGuire doing heat embossing with an embossing folder You can use all sorts of embossing powders She used gold,clear,sparkly etc You ink the background part (smooth part) of folder She used a brayer with a 3D folder and then ran it through machine Any missing bits can be touched up with an embossing pen and then heat emboss I used CE Frosty Dawn powder In my case the butterflies stand proud A JL butterfly and JH sentiment on cream card to match the powder.
Karen I love how you card turned out, I'm not sure if it comes under 'faux letterpress ' or 'embossed faux letterpress ' either way I love how it turned out, adding the embossing powder helps to highlight the detail in the folder I think. The interference colours in the 'Frosty Dawn' also work really well with your card colour!
A truly lovely card Karen, thank you so much for taking part XXX
I hope that you all have as good a day as possible, I'm not ready to make any changes regarding distance and hugging just yet, I'm sure you ladies are all proceeding with caution too, especially with this Indian variant going around.
Take care my lovely friends,
Love and hugs to all of you,
