A little card making

I thought I’d work on a couple cards today  based on a video I saw on StampTV. Gina K was showing a technique where you emboss only part of a card front. Here’s the link to her video. I loved the idea so I thought I’d try it out myself. For the first card I used an embossing folder from Spellbinders called Enchanted (ES-005). It doesn’t fit into my Vagabond embossing machine very well so the impression is very light. I used the Butterfly Kisses stamp set from Memory Box and Hero Arts ink. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado.

 

This second card card I used a Sizzix Embossing folder called Botanicals. The same stamp set for the butterflies, but the wooden stamp that I used for the sentiment doesn’t have a label on it. I think I got it years ago at Michaels in a set with about a dozen or so other wood stamps. The card base I used for both cards are from Memory Box. They are the only company I can find that sells blank colored cards with white on the inside. I can buy a pack of 20 or so of the same color. I think Hero Arts also sells colored card bases with white on the inside, but the packs of cards are multi-colored. They might be the same color family but not the same color.

We have a winter storm warning out for Friday morning into Saturday evening. I wish I didn’t have to work this weekend. I’d rather be home doing art than going to work in ice and snow.
