Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

Brusho and embossing ...

Hi Everybody,

This bright and cheerful card has used several techniques in its making.

The first thing I did was to create my background with the Brusho Crystal Colours and I used Orange and Red

Then I added in the flourish with Versamark and white embossing powder and heated it till it was raised

The gold dots are created with a mask and some embossing paste that was sprinkled while wet with gold glitter

I left that on one side for a few hours to dry completely and then I shaped the card with a corner rounder

It has been matted onto gold mirror card and layered onto the card base with foam tape to give dimension

Spellbinders have lots of word sentiments and this is Hello from Phrases Set Two

It was cut in black card several times and layered together to make it stand out from the card.

There is a very simple, quick and easy card to do and the colours are what make it stand out from the crowd.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Very nice card, Christina.

  8. Good Morning, Christina,
    What a pretty card and so colourful. Just what's needed for a dark and dismal morning down here in Cornwall. I love the embossing...would you believe that I got my very first tub of white embossing powder last week. I have NO idea why I've never had white before lol. I'm looking forward to playing with it. I don't have too many masks right now but my sister has hinted that she's getting me a soldering/craft iron for Christmas so that I can have a play at making my own...anyone have a pair of asbestos gloves lol

  9. Good morning Christina, sorry I've been awol, family troubles. I love this bright cheery card, I certainly made me smile. I have a nice group of these brusho's colours but to date haven't used them. I've just got to find my mojo again, then I'll try them. X

  10. Good Morning Christina :) What a Beautiful, Cheery, and Rich in Technique card this morning! I just love it! Thank you for sharing. Enjoy a wonderful fun-filled day. Big Hugs.

  13. What a fantastic card, love it so different to your usual would love to try this if that's okay? Thanks for sharing xx

  14. Hi Christina, what a bright & cheerful card, and unusual too. I don't have Brusho's but I should be able to achieve a similar result with sponging distress inks ... I hope! LOL! I once tried adding glitter to embossing paste while still wet, and it worked a treat, not done any since but I must, I so enjoyed the finished results, and enjoyed playing with that technique. It really is fun! Thanks for sharing this lovely card , it has inspired me to now make a card with the one I did ages ago (a peacock stencil)
