Greetings blog friends! I’m back with another tone on tone card and I’m sorry to do this, but I have an additional disclaimer to share about a technique that I tried yesterday. I sent my cut die still in the die back through the Grand Calibur to emboss and I don’t recommend you doing it. It leaves a faint line on the embossing folder and can mar the surface potentially showing on your paper on future embosses. It was just me experimenting and many have asked me how I preserved the edge, but now you’ve been cautioned and know it can mar your folder. Edited to add: my sweet friend Sue Wilson emailed me Whew . . . now with that behind me on to my card for today – a square, embossed card.
My Get Well card was created using Spellbinders Grand Squares and embellished with sentiments from JustRite Papercrafts – Chicken Soup Labels Four. I embossed with Spellbinders Dainty Dots and created my card base using the technique I’ve shown you for Spellbinders Hinged Card Bases. If you’re interested in the same technique for Creating Plain Card Bases, I originally did this technique back in February 2011 and you can see my older video —>HERE. On top of this card base I added Spellbinders Adorning Squares, topped it with Spellbinders Blossom Tags and Accents, added Spellbinders Venetian Motifs and on the inside used Get Well Labels Twenty , embellishing with Spellbinders Venetian Accents.
So to recap the layers from the bottom up, die cut layer of Grand Squares 5″ x 5″, foam tape, die cut layer ofAdorning Squares, foam tape, die cut layer of Blossom Tags, foam tape die cut layer of Venetian Motifs.
