Good afternoon one and all....

For 2019 I am going to make a conscious effort to use my papers, revisit my dies and stamps and get the most out of them.  Otherwise I'll be found drowning in crafty stock!  I am going to be very good in what I may order this year, I'm saying that because I love 'Heartfelt Creations' products and they have some products that I've been looking at for a year at least!

The above statement brings me to today's card....

The top panel on this card was in one of my project files and I 'found' it whilst looking for something else

A Couture Creations embossing folder was used, named Ambrosia, along with white card

Once embossed I gently coloured it using a Distress Oxide Ink Pad in broken china

Working backwards the panel was adhered to royal blue card, then white and finally the base card also using the royal blue cardstock

I added 3 lengths of string and held it in place on the inside of the card

The birthday wishes was die cut 6 times and glued together

Here's the tip:  if you want a gorgeous sheen on your sentiment and don't have 'glossy accents' or similar, remembering that you have to wait until the glossy accents dries completely, dab a clear stamp pad, such as VersaMark, onto the sentiment then sprinkle clear embossing powder over it, remove excess and heat set

You can see on the above photo how it shines

For the inside of the card I have only added plain paper until I know where the card is going 

Now for the first card winner of 2019

  5. Thank you June and thank you Jackie for your comment. Today’s card is lovely. Gorgeous colour. I know I shouldn’t but I have bought two dies from Clarity in their sale today.
