I created the word Thanks using two different fonts and welding them together. I used Arial and Bookman Old Style. I started with the Arial and used that font for every other letter. I cut the phrase out of a scrap of vanilla card stock. I heavily applied liquid embossing. I sprinkled first silver by rubbing it between my fingers and letting it randomly fall on the letters and then I added the raspberry pearl the same way. I heat embossed like normal. I love the way the phrase turned out.While heat embossing I discovered that the way the letters were welded there was enough play to arch the phrase on the card. I like that better than my original idea to have it straight on the card.
The flower is also cut out of a scrap of vanilla card stock. I used silver and raspberry embossing powder. I love the resulting color when the two are blended together and will keep it in mind for future projects. The color did get deeper on the flower when I used the rake tip with the Hot Boss Embossing Tool. I used the Bejeweler Pro to add a small pink rhinestone in the middle of the flower. I first used the tip to make a dimple in the center. Cleaned it off good on scrap paper and carefully put my rhinestone in the tip. It was so easy to use and I was able to get the rhinestone exactly when I wanted it.
I love the way this card came out so much that it is going to be difficult to let it go to a new home. However, knowing that it is going to bring a bit of joy makes it easier. Do you ever make cards for people and then have a hard time parting with them?
That's all folks. Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
