I hope you are all having a fantastic time, wherever you are, whatever you are doing. It was boiling hot today and not my cup of tea, but to all those who enjoy this kinda weather, bring on the bar-b-q and celebrate summer as really, we never know how long this will last, lol.
Anyway, today I am going to be sharing a few things with you. First and foremost, I have made this small A6 size card for my friend who is a teacher.She placed an order with me as she wanted to give these cards out to her students who have just completed their GCSE and are leaving for college.And she also wanted some bookmarks made out of craft lollipop sticks. I had made a small board where I displayed some samples of cards and bookmarks but I do not have a picture as I have left it at work.Anyway , my friend picked out which layout she liked best, she chose her colour and even wanted a lace border and here is what they looked like in the end.I hope you will enjoy this tutorial.Please , spread some love and leave me some comments and if you double click on the video, it will take you straight to youtube where you can watch it in HD, and while you are there, please rate, comment and subscribe.Many thanks:)
Double click on the video to watch this in HD and do not forget to subscribe. In the video , I start off by wiping an embossing buddy(small white pouch) on the card to make it less static.Because the embossing powder usually would want to stick to areas you do not want them on your card, so you need to make sure this doesn't happen, and using the embossing buddy works brilliant for me. Then I have used the big and juicy embossing ink, the clear one to stamp my lovely butterfly stamp from Inkadinkado 'mindscapes' onto the card( the other big butterfly I showed first is from the set 'Gem stone insects' by Inkadinkado again)- Then I have embossed with sparkled embossing powder by whisper. I have also used Martha stewart lace punch and the bookmark is made from craft lollipop sticks.Anyway hope you will enjoy this tutorial.
Thanks for watching..
