When I realized that my BFF's Birthday was coming up, I knew I couldn't just send her one of the cards from my stash! Bestie's deserve extra special cards!!
The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions, and was also done with VersaMark and Gold embossing powder. It seemed like there was just too much open space in the middle, so I took my Ranger Clear Embossing Pen and put some dots around where it seemed appropriate and embossed those as well.
I cut the panel to 4.75" x 6.25" and then cut a new panel to the original size. The edges of this new base panel were embossed with the VersaMark and gold embossing powder so it matched the design perfectly! I mounted the colored panel on Fun-foam then onto the gold-edged base panel, all adhered onto a white card-base.
Then I opened the card and realized it was way to plain!! So the sentiment was also Gold Embossed, with just the top portion of the smaller frame piece being embossed along the bottom. I used the same colors to add a lighter blending to the bottom of the inside of the card!
I wanted to decorate the envelope to match but the frame wasn't wide enough to cover the whole of the envelope on the wide side. So I fussed with inking all but the last portion, then moved the stamp and inked the last portion and a little more to fill the full width. To make the break seem not as obvious, I used my Embossing Pen again to add some dots and a flourish. And of course the same process of color blending on the envelope! I addressed the envelope using a Gold Uniball pen....before I remembered to take a picture of it. So, I'm not going to show it--but it was lovely!
Thanks so much for checking out my work and I'll hope to have you visit again soon!
