To a Crafty Girl
I made this card for one of my crafty friends. I took one of Hambly Studios new shimmer papers and clear embossed the bird and wing from Schlosser Designs Have a Tweet Day set to make a pattern on top of the shimmery script. I misted the patter with Tatered Angels pink mist and wiped off the embossed bird. I used the shimmery reverse side of the shimmery paper to create an accent bird and stamp the sentiment. This way the entire focus of the card was shimmery. The bird was stamped in Melon Mambo and clear embossed to make him stand out a little and popped up. I stitched the rest of the card to draw the eye into the focal point.
Here is a close up so you can see the embossing.
I was planning on posting this sooner but I have been swamped at work and been sick - yuck! I hope to get a little crafting in this weekend, since I am contagious and can't hang with my super cute niece on Halloween (my second fav holiday behind Christmas) :(
Have a great night! Maybe I will post again tonight (shocker I know).
