It's the dreaded mirror card again! lol, but big thank you to Mr F who took this first photograph for me, without one shadow or reflection and a steady hand!
And, it's another easy card make by using some glitter and an embossed final panel. With this one I added the red berries using NUVO Crystal Drops in Red Berry by Tonic
I started with a 5"x7" white card base then added narrow double sided tape to form a border and sprinkled Cosmic Shimmer Polished Silk Glitter in Ice Blue over the tape. This is an ideal way to make your glitters last longer, and, although it was the 'ice blue' glitter it work so well with the green mirri card!
If you haven't tried the polished silk glitter, by Creative Expressions, I would encourage you to do so as it's so different from 'ordinary' glitter, it really is so polished!
The green mirri card was cut to fit the Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, I've had this 'nameless' folder forever and a day, it does emboss beautifully
I stamped the sentiment using Versa Color '21 Green' and completed the card front by adding NUVO Crystal Drops in Red Berry. As an alternative you could add tiny red gems or nothing at all as it looks pretty 'naked'
White on white, with just a pop of colour for the sentiment.
You can really see the gorgeous detail with this embossing folder
I added a piece of double sided adhesive sheet onto the white card then embossed it.... on the wrong side, hence a debossed image, it would have looked much better on the embossed side!
On the embossed image I used a Clarity brush and added peeled paint distress ink over the image, then I watered a little black Gesso and added splatters as well as adding a few little dots of berry red with a ProMarker
I also used the peeled paint distress ink to stamp the sentiment
The green card is quite thick and you can't really see the scored lines I made down the left side and along the bottom area
For this week's give-away I have a set of Christmas toppers by Flower Soft, there are 23 toppers in the pack and a small fancy flower stamp by Chloe
