A daily papercrafting blog which features my handmade cards showcasing Creative Expression's products including my own line of cutting dies and embossing folders, Cosmic Shimmer, Ranger, Spellbinders and more which use various techniques and ideas to hopefully inspire the creativity in you.
Good Sunday morning all! Here's one that will work great for your guy cards if you want! I started with a piece of silver mirror card and embossed it with the Jacobean Floral embossing folder. I rubbed Graphite Gilding Polish all over the top of the embossed surface, then buffed it with a piece of kitchen roll to dry and shine it. Next I very lightly sanded the top of the embossing to give it a more distressed look. I added a piece of black card with just a thin bit showing on the edges and a slightly thicker mat behind that using the silver mirror card. For the focal element, I cut the Tahiti die in black and backed it with white. I cut the next section of the die in silver mirror card and added a white backing to it and stacked it in the centre of the die. I stamped my sentiment and cut it out with the smallest hexagon and added a slightly larger black mat before seating it in the centre of the die. I cut the Stitched Flags in varying sizes using both white and black card. I cut them in half and arranged them so they showed from either edge of the Tahiti die cut. I added flatback pearls and completed the card with white, black and silver mats and layers. The finished dimensions are 6" x 9 1/2" in size.
