I have a craft room with lots of stuff that I’ve had for a long time. I have a lot of embossing folders that I used all the time. I haven’t used an embossing folder in YEARS.
I’m not kidding!
I decided to pull one out today and create a card in a distressed style.
Distressed style is not my thing, but I love using mixed media and I have some ephemera tidbits that I wanted to try out on a card.
The sentiment is a new one from Catherine Pooler’s Grace in Bloom set. The embossing folder is a very old Sizzix. The embellishments are leftovers from old kits and things.
I embossed on white cardstock and then used my blender brush and the Tea Stain distress oxide ink. I heat embossed the sentiment in gold and added a gold wire element that I curled around a paint brush. I also added some fabulous leaves that are almost like thread leaves. I put some gold thread under the leaves and added a compass element on top. I added it all to a chocolate card base and added some black splatter.
I used this week’s Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge to create this card. I thought it was a great layout!
I flipped the sketch 90 degrees for a taller card.
This is a quick post today! I’ve attended a couponing virtual class that was free, a Vicki Boutin texture paste class, and a watercoloring virtual workshop with Altenew. I’m exhausted!!
I had a great day! If you haven’t participated in a virtual live event or a virtual crafty workshop, make time to do that. It’s such a treat to yourself!
Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!
