A SPECIAL SOMETHING & FREEBIE FRIDAY - POST NOW UPDATED

Good morning everyone....

Here is today's card and freebie gift


This is slightly larger than an 8" square card and I started with the die cut for the sentiment, die cut the detailed top from white card then used the outer die for the backing.The paper is one from Tonic's craft kit and the true colour is best seen on the photos below, not the top one as that looks more peach than the very pale lemonish colour it should be!

An old stamp set from Creative Expressions was used for the sentiment and this was heat embossed using WOW Pearlescent Gold embossing powder.  It's a perfect match with the Tonic paper.  I also added mounting foam to this 

For the next step I made 2 die cuts in another piece of white card and used the remainder of the Tonic paper to back them.  Mounting foam was then added to this


Now working towards the base card another piece of white card was cut then I had to use a very pale lemon card (from my stash) slightly larger than the lemon card, and adhered them together.  Mounting foam was also added to the back of this

I made my own base card from white card and assembled all the layers together

To complete nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss in Buttermilk was added 




Due to the embossing powder being in a plastic tub and the cost of postage I will decant the powder into a plastic bag for the winner.  I hope this is agreeable?


PRODUCTS USED:
  • white and lemon cardstock - my stash
  • Tonic 'lemonish' paper - Tonic Craft Kit
  • Frames & Tags - Lauren Die Set CED4314/Creative Expressions
  • nuvo Crystal Drops Gloss - Buttermilk/Tonic
Until later....
