here, a few weeks ago and thought what a good idea. Thanks Liz. I also used an ink blending mat which really helps to spread and blend the ink onto the brayer for nice smooth look. I cut some dark red card to fit the front of a white A5 card blank leaving a very narrow border, and then trimmed the embossed panel down to fit on the red card leaving a slightly wider border and stuck the two together. I cut the greeting with a Britannia die, once from a snippet of the red card and twice from white snippets, and the layered them up and coloured the edges with a dark red Distress Marker. I laid it on a non stick mat and gave it a coat of Glossy Accents and left it to dry before adding it to the card. I also added some gold coloured brads to the top and bottom corners and a tiny gold coloured gem for dot over the i. I tied some red and white bakers twine around before sticking it to the base card.
My description here is a bit long winded but these cards were actually quite quick to make.
I used a few snippets here so I going to pop over to Pixies Snippets Playground with them, where a snippet or two is all that is required to get in.
