As it's reached its recipient, I can now show you the card I made for the very lovely Kate of I Love Socks and Cards fame. She very kindly sent me some lovely crafting goodies including the gorgeous Crafter Companion 3D embossing folder, Country Garden, which I used for this card to say thank you.
It embossed beautifully and is 5x7, so a good size. I should have taken a side view of it so that you can see the depth of the embossing. I cut it down though to fit on a 6x6 card. I coloured the flowers and leaves with my copics and added either tonic nuvo drops or glossy accents dusted with glamour dust to the centre of the flowers. I layered the card up on some co-ordinating card to give it more impact. I wanted to add a sentiment, but didn't want to detract from the flowers. I cut a strip of vellum and stamped the lili of the valley sentiment in black stazon so it wouldn't smudge. I taped the vellum in place on the back of the image using red liner tape and added it to my card blank. Simples.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend x
