|Not sure how they got these kitties to stay in there!|
I am here to share a card I made back at Easter time but hadn't ever posted. Recently, I was asked to give a little workshop on dry embossing to a 4H family that was doing Cardmaking. I had sooooooooo much fun and this is one of the cards I took to show them what you can do with dry embossing.
I used two techniques for dry embossing on this card. For the cross, I inked my Darice - Faith Words in Cross folder with Distress Inks and misted it before putting in my white cardstock. I cut around the cross after the piece was completely dry.
For the floral background piece, I die cut scraps of patterned paper with my Sizzix Originals - Build a Lilac Die and glued the flowers onto my cardstock, and then I embossed it with my Darice - Cherry Blossom folder. After that, I double embossed it by brayering some Versamark over the surface and heat embossing with white powder.
Some pretty Prima and Petaloo flowers (with rhinestone and sequin centers) and scraps of patterned paper for background panels finished up this card. I love the cool spring-like colors on this card. It reminds me of the fresh, rain-kissed look and smell of flowers after a spring shower. Can you tell I am wilting in the heat and dreaming of cooler days???? :)
I hope everyone is staying safe in the heat. There are bad fires in our area.....over 100 individual lightning strike fires in the last 24 hours.....and more storms in the forecast. Right now, my daughter is helping a place where she works get ready to evacuate. I don't think it will threaten our house, but I pray it stays away from other people's homes, too.
Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving all your wonderful comments!!!
