This week’s challenge is “Back to Metallic or Foiling”
Since we usually work ahead on the challenges, I was still making Easter cards. So when this publishes it will be the Sat. after Easter and so will next Saturday’s card be Easter themed!
Step 1: I love Spellbinders 3D Embossing Folders. As you can see, the embossing is lighter in the areas that look like the background for the Lily Arch. The Arch is really emphasized embossing. Plus they’re huge! The embossed area measures 5 x 7″! From white card stock, cut a rectangle that measures 5.25″ x 7.25″. Insert into folder and run through your machine. I then used Black PanPastel to emphasize the embossing.
Step 2: Using the below die set cut two of the overlay die with white card stock adhere to two together so it is double layered. I then used clear Wink of Stella over the butterfly to give it a little shine. Next, adhere it only at the body as shown to the embossed layer. Bend the wings up and add 3 self adhesive silver pearls down the body. 1072 – Small Butterfly
Step 3: Using Spellbinders Crosses, cut a cross with silver mirror card stock. I love this die because it also embosses at the same time! Adhere the now silver embossed cross to the embossed layer as shown by putting a foam dot on all 4 ends of the cross.
Step 4: Create a base card by scoring an 8.5″ x 11″ at 5.5″ and fold over as a book fold. Trim to 5.5″ x 7.5″. Cut a rectangle that measures 5.25 x 7.25″ from black card stock. Adhere to the base card leaving an 1/8″ on all sides. Trim your finished embossed layer to 5″ x 7″ and adhere to the black layer. That’s it! Four easy steps! Thanks so much for taking a look!
