So, I wasn’t completely happy with yesterday’s card. I liked the overall concept but felt that it was missing something. So I’ve given it a makeover.
The first makeover was to replace the Iridecent ice embossing powder with gold embossing powder. I like this look -very traditional. And it adds a dimension that yesterday’s version was missing.
Adding the gold embossed loopy tree is a definite improvement but still not quite there.
My next makeover was to stamp the loopy tree in Cherry Cobbler. This really made the tree stand out. Then, using my Stamp-a-ma-jig, I restamped the loopy tree in VersaMark and embossed it with Iridescent ice. This is my favourite version of this card! It has dimension and shine!
And here is a better picture of the shine:
Okay, I can rest easy now. 🙂
- Stamps: Evergreen, Petite Pairs
- Paper: Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Raspberry Tart DSP (retired)
- Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Kiwi Kiss (retired), VersaMark
- Accessories: Iridescent ice and gold embossing powders, Cherry Cobbler seam binding and the large oval and scallop oval punches, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Thanks for stopping by!
