Just Magnolia Challenge - Embossing


Ive created todays card for this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge, Embossing, but Ive also cheated and used it to make a card ready to send to my Granddaughter for Halloween, as Ive got several I think this probably better for the 14 year old.

Ive just the Halloween Tilda stamp and masked her then used the Spiders web stamp and the mushroom one as well. Then Ive coloured her with my copic pens and cut her out with my rotatrim, before mounting her onto some dark red card, Ive inked around the edge with a sepia inkpad, thats why its a bit smudged in places, daft me it has a naughty habit of going everywhere as well. Ive also used some gold pen around the edge of the dark red card.

The base card is a 8"x 8" white card and the first layer is a piece of black card with one of three papers Ive used from Donna's Bearly Mine Extreme Designs Cd.III this is from the Halloween folder. The first paper is a dark purple with lots of spooky thinks all over it, the second paper is a patchwork one of purple and black though its not easy to see, but Ive used the Graveyard border punch of Martha Stewart on it. The third layer has been put through my cuttlebug and Ive used a Halloween folder for this one and then used the pumpkin border punch on this, this is another of Martha Stewart punches.

The fourth layer is just a piece of orange card, and a third paper of grey patchwork and again spooky images on. Ive also used the pumpkin Nestabilitie diecuts and popped them through another of the halloween embossing folders, then with the same gold pen and because they blended in the the other layers Ive gone around the edges and stuck them along the bottom of my card.

The stamped mounted image has been positioned in the centre and two halloween buttons have then been stuck to the top either side of the mounted image.

Hi Shirley

A lovely card with a great image.

My apologies for not being around to see you for a few days.

Life has been very busy on the home, work and craft front.

Such a shame I have to sleep - it feels like such a waste of time!! LOL!!

I haven't even caught up with you properly following your holiday. Did you find somewhere to buy a special ice cream?

Love Jules xx
