My 1st Dec DT Card
Good Tuesday morning blog friends
I hope you all had a good weekend. My weekend consisted of clearing up after an elderly puss cat (Summer), and a hubby that ended up in A&E. He was doing gardening and putting new fascias and guttering around to bungalow, he came in, his eye streaming to see if I could see anything in it. It was completely red, that was on Saturday, by Sunday it looked dreadful, so I said it's A&E for you. They said what ever it was that was in his eye had gone with the eye watering so much but what ever it was had cut the cornea. So he has antibiotic cream to put in. Well what can I say, when Claire & Craig were little they didn't make as much fuss when taking their medicine. MEN!.
Anyway I digress, the stamps we were sent for this month are even more of a challenge than last month, but I'm up for that. No flowers or butterflies on this card though.
Products used :-
8x8 white card
Creative Expressions- foundation black card
" " foundation White card
Gold mirri card
Creative Expressions- black embossing powder
Creative Expressions- Tea & Biscuits stamp
Tim Holtz distress inks- Vintage photo & Wild honey
Gems- from my stash
Tea cup- from my stash
Sue Wilson Embossing folder
Sue Wilson California collection- Corner, border & Tags
First I matt & layered Gold and black card to the main 8x8 card, then did another set of matt & layering, only slightly smaller but bossed the black card with the basket weave EF and only 3/4 of the way down the black card. With odds and ends of the white, mirri & black card I made a ribbon to go across the bottom of the embossed part of the card. Before attaching I used Sue's Border die, in gold mirri and glued it to the back of the ribbon then glued to the bottom of the card. I stamped the Tea and Biscuit stamp onto white card and while still in the die I added some shade with distressing inks. I cut an oval frame out of remaining embossed card and layered with sticky pads. Just to finish I added some black gems and a cup an saucer from my stash.
I hope you like it! I would love you to leave a comment, and look forward to reading them.
See again you soon!
Kind Regards :-)
