Brocade gift set (cont.)Posted: June 24, 2008
I did not get back to the gifts for my friend’s birthday until Friday night and then gave it all to her on Saturday without getting good photos of everything. If I get a chance I will try and take some photos of the rest of the gifts. I do have photos of two more cards which were part of a box of greeting cards. I managed to find a nice woven box to put everything in. (You wouldn’t know that the photos from the last post and these ones show cards from the same set as I have very warm yellow light in the first ones and cold grey light in these.)
The card above features a clear embossed flourish on vanilla cardstock with river rock sponging over the top. To give the background some depth I stamped the flourish lightly and unevenly in river rock and did a little sponging as well.
You can’t see them very well but the three squares on the card above were embossed with the cuttlebug using one of the formal squares folders. The design co-ordinated so well with the background designer paper that I didn’t add anything else.
Stamps:With Gratitude, Baroque motifs
