A big welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi my dear Blog Buddies, here to show you our most recent Masterboard swap.
This is the one that my friend Gloria sent me and I am hoping you will enjoy seeing what I have made with it.
Decided that I would like to try and include the Cabinet Card die by Tim Holtz for this piece and started by cutting out four sections in the Masterboard, four border sections in lovely shiny mirri card and backings in textured card stock.
The stamps Gloria used are mostly by Paper Artsy, lovely quirky designs. Gloria and I have been swapping for some time and she knows me well.
I embossed the border sections using a Couture Creations Embossing Folder, 'Replacements'.
I also embossed the backs
and then added more stamped images.
A few brads to enhance the embossing on the borders.
And it's nearly finished!
Finally I rubbed over the borders with gilding wax, added some shiny Stickles glue (this is the law according to my mother Lol!: "cards have to shine, it's the law"), ribbon and a few embellishments and charms.
And here is the completed accordion card.
I added some gilding wax to the back as I felt the embossing just needed a little extra to help the cogs stand out better.
I had this idea when taking the photographs, it could be used to place round a plant pot maybe.
Well that's it for today.
I really would love to know what you think of this project.
Because I have added sparkle to this project I am going to enter it in the Left of Centre weekly challenge:
