This weeks card first started out as a buckle card but when I was putting the pieces together it just didn't look right so it sat on my craft desk for a few days. Then on Wednesday morning I checked to see what sketch Cheryl Ann had for us and it all just fell into place :)
Here is the sketch:
and here is what I finally came up with:
I had been playing around with my new Flower Garden Embossing Folder and ended inking it up using daubers - not bad for my first attempt. I then embossed the front of the card stock (I put it in the folder the wrong way but I think it actually looks ok) - here is a closer view:
It also gives an impression from the inside:
Stamp - A Word for You
Card Stock - Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White
Ink - Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi
Other - Flower Garden Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Daubers
Well my Christmas break has come to an end and it's back to work on Monday. It has been a very relaxing two weeks - not a lot else you can do when it's pouring with rain outside. I've managed to get some crafting done and read a couple of books.
Catch you back soon with some more cards I've made and an altered tin.
