Good Thursday Morning Ladies
We had another humid day yesterday, there was a strong breeze but it didn't make a difference in my craft room though! Yesterday bought some worrying news, my blood test results were back, the receptionist called to tell me that the 'Inflammatory Markers in my Liver Function test' were up, the Doctor wanted to speak to me about it, so I said when can I come in?, her reply I can get you a phone consultation, the earliest is Friday 12th August! 2 days before we go on holiday!! Not great when you suffer Anxiety!! I explained all of those factors but that is the only available appointment! I had Hepatic Liver a couple years ago, they thought it was down to the new Beta Blockers that they had me on, I stopped them and after a while it seemed to sort itself out. This time I'm not on any different medication so I've no idea what it could be, we really don't drink alcohol and we don't have 'processed food' we cook from scratch. I am trying not to refer to Dr Google!!
Today's card I really like, its made using the 'double embossing ' technique. I took a piece of old olive card and ran it through the die cutting machine with the 'Pinewood Planks' embossing folder, the I used the smaller 'Greenery ' embossing folder and used the top of the folder on one side of the folder and the bottom pattern detail on the other side, so it gives the effect of leaves and vines trailing down from the top of the card and growing up from the bottom on the other side, see picture above...
I really love the effect and would never have thought of mixing two folders, the foliage really frames the card, to decorate the card I fussy cut a flower sprig from some pretty paper and used foam pads to raise it off the background, all that it needed was the sentiment! I think the lady that shared the technique was called Tina on Pinterest.
So Ladies get your embossing folders out and have a play!!
I hope you all have a great Thursday,
You are all in my thoughts daily my lovely friends,
Love and hugs,
