It's Time to Celebrate



Hi Stampers, its been a couple of weeks since I posted my last card and it feels good to be sitting at my desk. Last week I was away all week with work and didn't get home until late Friday night so I was very tired over the weekend and just had no motivation to sit down and create. But I have recharged my batteries so here I am!! Todays card I have made for a local craft store. I had been asked a while ago if I would like to make some cards for the store and it has finally happened. For this card I have used two new tri-boss embossing folders from the Chronology theme - clocks & cogs. I embossed the card then brayered them with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. I then used my Spellbinder Picot Edge circles to make some cogs. For design I have used the latest sketch over on Seize the Birthday and for colour inspiration I have used the colour scheme from Just Add Ink. Thanks for stopping by...


Seize The Birthday: STB #6 - Masculine
Just Add Ink: JAI #154

  6. Terrific male card Vikki - neat set of embossing folders I can see they'll get a bit of use - they look so effective when inked up.
