A favourite card – Miriam Thomas

A favourite card

| Posted in Cardmaking

Today marks Day 7 of my making amends promise! I hope you’ve enjoyed popping in each day to see the projects. 

For today I have a favourite for you.  I was inspired by a few things I saw at Convention to help bring this card to life.  I saw a divine card (created using the MEDALLION stamp set) on one of the display boards at Convention.  Unfortunately I don’t know who made the card but I loved it.   Shelli Gardner (SU CEO) also shared a gorgeous little box/ bag during a presentation on stage and I took elements from that I loved.

I wanted to add my own little “spin” to the inspiration I drew from Convention and used a stamping technique known as “EMBOSS RESIST” to create my card.  Here it is…….

CARDSTOCK: Rich Razzleberry, Pink Pirouette, Basic Grey,

INKS: Rich Razzleberry, Basic Grey

OTHER:  Half back pearl from pretties kit, Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon,
