Another Batch of Cards ...

Hi Everybody,

This batch of "Thank You" cards have been created with the sentiment added with silver foil using the Minc Machine

I also stamped and heat embossed in white the doily pattern at the top of each corner.

I used the Doily Fun  stamp set from Spellbinders for this  and I used the Misti to help me get the same look on each card

I have ink blended over the card with Distress inks and once I had done that it looked awful. They where on their way to the trash can when I decided to wait and see what happened.

I am relieved to say that once the ink had dried it all seemed to go smooth and I added some water splatters onto the ink then blotted it off with a paper towel.

I was not too un happy with the result.  I added in the Ikea Baked dots and they don't look too bad.

I have added them all to a clear plastic card box complete with the white envelopes and they will make a gift for someone to use.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  18. Hi, Christina,
    They are great! I'm so glad you waited a bit before binning them, they are all well worth keeping. The doily is so pretty and really pips out with the white embossing. Another success I would say :).

  24. I like the look. I use a large snowflake as a doily. If you scrunch your eyes enough, it does look a bit doily. :) lol
