When I was going through my files and saw that I had downloaded from My Scrapchick this cute card cutting file I knew I was going to have to make one for my granddaughters. The white card stock is the only non scrap that I used for the scallop pieces and the card base. Luckily I had just enough of the light pink to cut out the two pieces I needed.
I used a border embossing folder on the white scallop pieces. I used a brayer and applied ink to the raised design part of the folder. You get different looks depending on whether the ink is applied to the raised or recessed side of the folder.
I discovered that heat embossing doesn't work too well on textured card stock. Also discovered that my new Glitz embossing powder is transparent so a colored ink has to be used. Not one to be wasteful I flipped the piece over and stamped with yellow ink. Then added the embossing powder and melted it.
I am pleased with the way that the front of the card turned out.Even more pleased with how the inside turned out.
Thank you for stopping by. I hope I have inspired you to get out those scraps and craft. Happy crafting till we meet again.
