I have rejoined my greeting card exchange group after not participating last fall due to my health issues.
I used the 3D Painted Texture Embossing Folder from Stampin Up on a piece of mottled purple card stock. Trimmed to 4.00 x 5.25 inches.
I punched half holes on both side about 2" up from the bottom and wrapped a piece of heavy yellow thread around the layer and knotted it to the front. Trimmed the ends.
I adhered that to a dark purple A2 card base in the portrait orientation.
The focal element is chalked and cut with the Spellbinders Nestabilities - Small Deckled Rectangles thinlits. I used Stampin Up chalks and a Qtip to apply the color. The images are from the Stampin Up Blossoms Abound set.
I used the same card stock base and embossed layer on this card.
For the focal element I used the Stampin Up Blessed Easter Tulips. Again, chalked with SU colors.
I used a piece of warm purple fiber to tie around the embossed layer.
The half circles were punched with an 1/8" punch. Trying very hard to only use half otherwise it looks a little funny.
The focal elements were adhered to the card front with 3D foam tape.
Loving the new embossing folder.
Using what I have - the Deckle Edge Rectangles I have seldom used and I am really liking this use.
