Todays card is the workshop card form last week at Samuel Taylors in Embsay Skipton. As with workshop cards I don't put full instructions on the blog however Im sure you can work out how this one was done!
The centre panel is stamped using my build a wreath clear stamp set and the izink silver metallic pigment ink pad. I heat enmnossed this with glitter embossing powder but its not showing on the pictures, in real life it sparkles.

A change form the Christmas cards today with a birthday card with a real autumnal feel.
I started by adding rude and copper izink pigment ink pads to the flat side of my winter trees embossing folder. I embossed this to give the letterpress look where the deep red is at the top but fades down the scene. This leaves the trees showing in white. Next I added clear sparkle embossing powder over the top ( as i used pigment ink i was able to heat emboss over the top) I heat set this which adds the clear coating with a sparkle in it.
I simply added the press cut happy birthday over the top shadowed with white and copper. O matted and layered the piece using white, copper and deep red card.

I have to admit it isn't often I say this but I really pleased with how this card turned out! I know its another Christmas Card and I will be moving on to less Christmas next week however I really wanted to share this one!
I stated by letter pressing the snowflake circle embossing folder using izink pigment ink pad in navy blue. I then stamped the centre panel using the same ink and my Christmas Scene clear stamp set. I cut this with the stitch dot circles mating it on yale blue, silver mirror card and more of the white mounting them in the centre of the embossed panel.
I mounted this onto a few layers of the blue white and silver and added it to a large 8x8" card blank.

A very simple card today but the first card I made with my embossing folders and Stamps so I thought It was worth sharing!
I cut this out with the press cut plain circles dies drawing around the inside of the die with a fine gold pen to add the fine line. I matted this on antique gold card cut with the stitch dot circles again from press cut,
I simply matted this with more of the gold and white adding a bow of thin gold ribbon along with gold cord to add a highlight.

I thought I had exhausted the cards I made with the find it snowflake swirl die however I found this one lurking in my files and its another way to use the die this time as a base for Poinsettias.
