Hi everyone Vicky here today with a bit of inspiration using fabulous products from Noor Design UK.
Would you believe I've gone all CAS today..........think I must be sickening for something lol. Now I lurve my foofy cards but I also love CAS cards.........well I love everyone else's CAS cards lol. For me these take just as long as my foofy cards lol.
However this one I have to say all fell into place & it started off with a Dutch Doobadoo Template & a Little Darlings Embossing Folder....
So I made a CAS card & a Matching Envelope. Links to products used will be at the bottom.
I've used a Scrapiniec Chipboard frame for around my image. I painted it first with white gesso then added Shabby Blue Fran-tage to it.
The embossing folder used is Little Darlings Gilded Embossing Folder & in this set you get 2 embossing folders......... 1 embosses all over, like what I've done for the back of the card & the other folder embosses & leaves a blank oval space in the centre, which is what I've used for the front of the card & for the envelope......this is ideal for writing on.....or as I've done on the card placing my image on.
Inisde the card I've used a fabulous sentiment set from Little Darlings called 'Best Friends', this is a fabulous set, you get 12 stamps including these little scroll pattern stamps which I think are perfect for adding that finishing touch.
For the blue colour I just used the same distress ink marker that I used on the image which was Evergreen Bough & then coloured the stamp.......ideal if you dont have that colour ink pad.
The image is a rubber stamp again by Little Darlings Saturated Canary 'Sweatshirt Saturday' I lurve this stamp its one of my favourites. She has been stamped onto Fabriano Artistico paper which Tracy now stocks........this paper is AWESOME for your watercolours.
I've used Distress markers, ink pads & refills.
For the envelope I used the Dutch Doobadoo Envelope Art A4 Scallop 2. I also added 2 layers of card, 1 in a co-ordinating colour to the image & the other for embossing. I've used the same Little Darlings sentiment set. I've also added the Swirl Leaf die & a few flowers, the smaller ones are OWC flowers which Tracy now stocks over at Noor Design UK & more is due in soon.
Thats it from me, thank you for stopping by.
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx
