I enjoyed making both of these cards for my partner for our December card swap at Craftmad (gallery here). I used some silver glitter paper for the top of the card. The bottom section I created by cutting four Spellbinder edges and layering them up. I covered the join with some white ribbon. Then attached this lovely white paper flower from my stash, cut some Spellbinder die leaves. The bottom leaves I embossed the veins in the centre of the leaves. When I cut these leaves out I always put a sheet of baking paper down before the card stock to make it easier to get the piece out. I have added that baking paper cut out as a second layer to the top leaf….I just liked the effect. Hard to see in the photo.
This is my second card. I found this embossed panel in my stash which must have been sent to me in a previous Craftmad swap. I then attached the lace and the lovely flower I received from Kaye and added the bling brad.
You can come and join in the fun. Craftmad is a free forum and we are just setting up our first swap for 2014.
