Another folder from Altenew

Hi Everybody,

This card is kept really simple and all I have one is emboss some green card in the folder and then cut the leaves from the card.

I have covered them with Versamark and embossed them with gold powder which has then been heated till it melts.

I have cut another leaf in green from a completely different die set and that has been tucked in with the gold leaves.

A white layer has also been embossed in the same folder and this is used as the background to my card. The gold litter card has been used to edge the panel.

This is just one way that the folder can be used and I am sure there are many more which I will find as I play.

The sentiment is one I have had for years and I have cut that four times and stacked them together with the top layer as black mirror card. The black pearls complete the design and it is a DL style which will fit into a standard sized envelope.

More tomorrow 

Hugs xx
