Thought I'd better get a Valentine's card made for Keith - nothing like leaving it until the last minute!
Out came my Grand Calibur!
I embossed some gold card using a budding vine embossing folder from Craft Concepts. The folder is A6 & my card is A5, so I had to emboss my card twice, but the design seemed to match up & I think it looks ok. Stuck this onto my card using Collall glue.
I made the topper using a Marianne Creatables die (Anja's Square), I used the budding vine folder to emboss the smallest layer - think you can just about see it on the photo.
Cut the letters from the gold card using Memory Box uppercase die, stuck these to the smallest layer.
Stuck the largest layers using Collall, used foam pads for the smallest layer to give some dimension & used the foam pads to stick the whole topper onto the cold card.
I finished it off by making a bow from some Hobbycraft ribbon.
PHEW! Managed to get it finished before he gets home! I think he'll like it.
Enjoy tomorrow whatever you're doing.
