Hello Crafters...I actually have a post for today. School is kicking my you know what! I really need to find the balance between school and my time at home doing what I enjoy - making cards and scrapbooking.
A week or so ago I was looking at some of the challenge blogs in hopes of participating. I saw this absolutley amazing card using my one of my favorite stamp companies products, Close To My Heart and I had to make this card. The card is made by a woman named Deneen and she did such an amazing job.
I had to modify my card. I do not have the new Impressabilities that she used to emboss her paper, so I got creative! I cut the paper with my Nestabilities and left it in the die. Then I placed the cut and die into the swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder. I layed in on the base plate, a B plate, with two tan embossing mats, and two cardboard squares. I finally got it to take the embossing that I was looking for. I think it came out pretty neat looking. However, I am disappointed with the shading. I stamped the image about 10 times to get the shading right and it still looks wrong.
I like the card very much. I do have a dilema though...is this a female card or a male card?? Perhaps both.
Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day!
