Today it's time for my Sunday Stampers card for this week - this is Hels Sheridan's weekly stamping challenge, all good fun! For all the deets hop on over to Hels' blog -here-
This week the theme is black and gold and I have made a little card. I will list all that I used at the end of the post.
To begin with I made a 6x4 card blank and added a base layer of mat gold card that I'd embossed. I then matted and layered die cut black and gold card, the topper stamped with a stamp by Crafty Individuals and heat embossed in gold.
I wound gold thread around the layers and added tiny die cut leaves. Finally I added a bird that I had made using a mould and air dry clay - this one by Martha Stewart is paper light and adds no weight to a card. I coated the bird with gold Rub n' Buff..I have been using this for years and love it!
I also decorated the inside of the card, by adding a strip of left over embossed card and a thin strip of black to the bottom edge. I stamped the greeting and heat embossed in gold, then matted and layered. I had one dilemma, because the stamp (by Kirstie Allsop, free with a mag), had a floral flourish to the side, which wasn't very defined. I decided to add a die cut flower, but it couldn't be too 'full' or it would be squashed, so I chose this one, which is Spellbinders Blooms Four and a very useful die too!
