Welcome to the August SOTM – Framed (S1508) Blog Hop International. I am so glad to have you come by to join the 51 of us and I sure hope you find some inspiration here. If you came from Michelle Jones you are in the right place. If you have just hopped on board please continue at the link at the end of this post to continue around the whole loop.
Today I want to share with you this card using Framed, August 2015 SOTM. This set lends itself to so many cards and this little technique can be used for all of them.
August SOTM Framed
ink embossing folder
You can easily achieve the background paper. I cut White daisy at 4 x 5 1/4. I inked the NEGATIVE side of the Damask embossing folder with Bamboo ink. I laid the white cardstock on it and ran it through the Cuttlebug.
Ink the raised embossed edge
I then used the actual Bamboo Ink Pad to ink a much darker value of the same colour onto the raised damask pattern.
I made the strip of Gold Polka Dot by attaching it to strips of Bamboo cardstock.
I stamped the Frame and For You Sentiment with Versamark ink and embossed with Gold embossing poweders. I cut this and mounted it to Cocoa cardstock.
Make a pile at once!
I made the card based from a 4 1/2 x 11 inch piece of Cocoa card stock. I have made some use of Cocoa fundamentals in my greetings:)
I have added some ribbon from my stash to add that finishing touch.
I hope you have enjoyed this card and will give these techniques a try! I can’t wait to share this in my classes. Framed SOTM is available to Australian Customers for just $5 with a $75 purchase of $29 at full price in AUGUST ONLY. Be sure to get yours from your consultant or shop online right now
