I can take photos again!

It's only been a few days since we sent for a replacement camera for the one I dropped (oops!) but it seems ages since I've been able to take a photograph. Well actually, I'm letting Paul do that at the moment. For a start he takes better photos than me, and I don't want to break another one, let him do it!!!!!!!

So this is a card I made a few days ago.

I've used a 5" X 7" raspberry pearlescent card blank and the scalloped circles are the same. The mat is Core'dinations Whitewash which has been embossed partly with Swiss Dots and partly with Stylized Flower and sanded, wrapped with some pink satin ribon with a sort of bow, just a knot really, plus some other pink ribbon with spots. The stamp is actually a Forever Friends Christmas one but by using different colours is suitable for other occasions I think. Two sizes of circles/scalloped circles cut with my Nesties.

I can't remember where I discovered how to do this embossing with two folders on one piece of card, I look at so many sites to try and learn more and challenge myself. If it was Ikki's then I'm blowed if I can find it again, but she is so clever and comes up with some fantastic ideas that it's a blog I'll be visiting regularly. You can see Ikki's work here. I'm already working on her partial embossing by making an MFP (modifying folder pad) and hope to crack it completely over the weekend. I haven't had a lot of time to play this last couple of days, I made a start earlier in the week and will get back to it then hopefully post a picture of the card I make.

Another lovely card Susan. I haven't done any embossing with my cuttlebug yet but I do like the effect of the "double" embossing. Hugs, Annexxx
