I’ve had another try with my ‘Message in a Tree’ embossing folder today. I am avoiding the brayer because I just can’t get along with it! If anyone has any tips they would be gratefully received. Whenever I try to ink with it, I get ink where I don’t want it. But yet whenever I watch a demo, it just inks the embossed bits and nowhere else. I must be doing something wrong, but I’m jiggered if I know what! So I decided to give Core’dinations a go instead.
I’ve used ‘The Whitewash Collection‘. Never tried sanding an embossed piece before so was very tentative at first but quickly realised you need to be quite heavy handed to get a decent result. I’ve stuck with red, but I may step out of the box and try an alternative next time.
I added some glossy accents and a bit of sparkly to some of the snowflakes. Could do with some Stickles for Christmas I think!
I finished with some lovely red satin ribbon that I got off a box of chocolates from my lovely husband some time ago! (It was a huge box so I have about 2 metres!) and embellished with Card Candi.
That’s another Christmas card to add to the pile – only about another 30 to go…
I would like to enter this card into the following blog challenges:
Thanks for reading and if you can link me to a brayering tutorial please do!
Back tomorrow for my final card of the week,
