Papertrey Ink special day card.

Hello everyone,

Its a gloomy grey day in Manchester, so I've spent some time making a card for the Papertrey Ink  Make it Monday challenge, which is to use heat embossing on a card.

For this one I cut an aperture on the front of some white card and softly inked the edge of the aperture with some aqua mist ink. I then used the star dies and cut a large star in aqua mist card and placed it on the back of the card, centrally behind the aperture and stamped and embossed a sentiment from Birthday Basics. You can click on any of the photos to enlarge them.














Next came 2 medium star die cuts in white card that I stamped and embossed with 2 images from Star Prints. I sandwiched these together with some crochet thread to hang it on the aperture with.


























I placed it centrally over the AM star and stuck it with some tape so it dangled nicely. I then needed to hide the tape so I cut a couple of holes in the front of the card with my ribbon punch and passed AM dotty ribbon through them to hide the tape and tied it in a bow. I finished it off by stamping and embossing a sentiment from Star Prints on the front.


I couldn't get a good shot of the shine of the embossing but the sheen on the ribbon comes out quite well. Here is a shot of the closed card lying flat.














I hope you have a great day and thanks for looking.
Hugs
