New Spellbinder dies plus a Penny Black card
Now onto the card. This new Penny Black (Christmas text) design just came in yesterday and I will be using the image in my upcoming Penny Black Christmas Card class. I began by stamping and embossing the image twice. I took a piece of Cut N Dry foam and colored the branch with Memento Bamboo Leaves ink on both images. I cut out one of the branches. I distressed the text part of the stamped image with my new Distress Antique Linen pad. I used some foam mounting tape and mounted the cut out branches over top of the distressed image. I cut out the image carefully cutting around the swirly side. I used my corner rounder and rounded the 2 right corners. I edged the white paper with the Bamboo Leaves ink to make it a little less stark. I mounted the image on a piece of Hero Arts green pattern paper (cut using a Spellbinder Labels 8 die) then onto a piece of My Minds Eye cardstock. I also added some Hero Arts ribbon and gems to finish off the card. Thanks for stopping by.
