It’s a new month and a new hostess over at: Crazy4Challenges
This month we have Rebecca Ednie and her challenge for us this week is to use 3 metallic or metallic colored embellishments on your card. My landlord, who is in his 90’s, says he needs more sympathy cards then B-day cards these days. So this one is for a little set of that theme of cards for him. It’s great for when you need to make a few of the same card because it’s quick and easy.
Step 1: Using the largest die from Elizabeth Craft Designs: 1120 – Stitched Rectangles
Cut a rectangle with white card stock.
Step 2: I then embossed this rectangle with a tree embossing folder from Darice.
Step 3: I went over the embossing with silver PanPastels. It doesn’t turn out mirror metallic but does have some sheen that doesn’t show up in a photo. Then I stamped the embossed layer with the “With Sympathy” sentiment in the lower right corner with a little acrylic stamp from JoAnn’s Fabric and crafts.
Step 4: The little butterflies are a Silhouette file that I cut from Silver Mirror card stock.
Step 5: Cut a 6 and an 1/8″ x 5″ rectangle from silver Mirror card stock.
Step 6: Cut a 6 and 3/8″ x 5 and 1/8″ black card stock rectangle’
Step 7: Make a base card by scoring and 8.5″ x 11″ piece of white card stock at 5.5″. Fold over and trim to 7″ x 5.5″.
Step 8: Assemble the card as shown:
