Ever AfterPosted: February 9, 2009
This card happened a little by accident, but I am very happy with the accident. After I had had all sorts of issues with my previous heart card, which had meant that I had stamped the heart, cleaned the stamp, botched it and then stamped the heart, cleaned the stamp, botched it… the stamping scrub was tinged with red ink, so even when I cleaned the stamp I didn’t do a good enough job. I inked up the heart withTsukineko Wheat Versamagic chalk ink, which I had never used before, and stamped it on vanilla cardstock. The colour of the heart was the pale salmon colour in the card above, not wheat. It just happened to match beautifully with Blush Blossom so a few layers and a cuttlebug embossed matte were all that was needed to make this wedding card.
As the card is 5¼” square the cuttlebug matte needed to be wider than the embossing folder. I put it through once and then moved the folder over to the unembossed strip down the side of the square and carefully fitted the folder partially over the already embossed part of the square but also over the rest of the square. Sharon actually explains how to do it with pictures here.
Thanks for dropping in.
