Running out of storage space in my craft room means a clearout has become absolutely necessary. I've already sorted out quite a lot that I'm happy to let go to new homes but I have a big 'undecided' pile full of items I haven't used much but I just can't bring myself to say goodbye to them. I'm making myself use items from the 'undecided' pile to help me make my mind up one way or another! The items for this card are the AlteNew 'Hennah Elements' stamp and die sets and the SU! 'Victorian Lace' background stamp. A firm decision has been made - they are staying in my stash!
I bet many of us crafters can remember the 'oooooh' moment when we first experienced heat embossing. As I was embossing my flowers, leaves and sentiment with gold powder I still had 'oooooh' moments - clearly for me it never gets old! I embossed the flowers on SU! Rich Razzleberry CS and the leaves on vellum CS. After die cutting them I snipped the petals of the flowers and shaped them a bit and I popped up the small flower. I used stitched square dies for my layers and stamped the lace background stamp on the Rich Razzleberry square using Rich Razzleberry ink for a lovely tone on tone look. I added a few gold nailheads as a finishing touch which gives a tad more gold shine to the card.
To decorate the inside of the card and the envelope I stamped the lace background stamp onto Whisper White CS, cut two strips, glued them in place and added lines drawn with a Rich Razzleberry marker.
