One Layer Wednesday challenge (#23) "Heavy Metal". The challenge was to create a one layer card using metallics on the card. Now, I love the look of metallic ink.... on other people's cards, just not on mine. Probably because I just can't seem to get a real good impression with metallic ink. Anyway, the challenge got my gears moving and I decided to do some embossing using one of the Heartfelt Creations die set (HCD 705 - Holly/Ornaments Diecuts). I centered the die on the cardstock, taped it down, then made my "sandwich" (for the Cuttlebug spacer plate, B plate cardstock/die combo - cutting side facing up, cardstock shims, tan embossing pad & 2nd B plate) and ran it through the Cuttlebug. That was the easy part. Getting the ornament (HCPC3336 Ornament Medallion set) stamped centered in the ornament is where things got tricky. I ruined several pieces of cardstock until I got it mostly right. I do love the look, though.Now that I have my Hero Arts deadline behind me I plan to start making and posting more cards and projects using stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations. Today I made this pretty simple looking card that was anything but simple to put together. It all started when I saw Susan's
Thanks for taking a peek... have a great day!
