This is hopefully one of the cards that I'll be demonstrating today on Create & Craft (details and times in left-hand side bar).
I ran a 7 1/2 inch square piece of Kraftcore card through the Grand Calibur with the Couture Creations Vintage Dressmaker Embossing Folder. I sanded the embossed image to reveal the core. This is such a lovely folder and works really well on card that is bigger than the folder. I will have some of Sue's samples on the show that use this folder too.
I stamped 3 of the Dressforms from the Creative Expressions Antique Dressforms Stamp Set onto Kraft Card using Sepia Archival. I cut them out leaving a slight border all round (makes it so much easier to cut out!). I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set again in Sepia Archival. I cut it out with an Oval Nestie and inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink while still in the die.
I stamped the scissors from the stamp set using the Sepia Archival onto some American Seam Binding. I tied a bow with 2 lengths of it and kept another piece to run across the card. I spritzed the bow and the spare piece with the Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Mist in Tarnished Gold. I tied another bow using 2 colours of Baker's Twine from the Earthtones Set.
I assembled the card as shown and added a Tan Zipper Rose.
Hope you can join me today for the shows.
Thanks for stopping by.
