Time for another card exchange at Auntie Em's Scrapbooking ... this time it is Christmas Cards!
Yay, I just love Christmas and love making my handmade cards so much too. I know there are people who look forward to my cards ... I'm sure there are others who just don't give a damn weather they get a card from me or not, let alone weather it was lovingly hand made or not.
I scraplifted this design from this website - I loved the simplicity of it, the white space, the embossing ... everything about it screamed LORENA! So, here is my take on it. It was more than a 3 step process ... but then again, what card isn't??
The dove I heat embossed with UT 3 times, then after it cooled I cracked it and inked it to bring out the cracks. The wreath is embossed in white, then the leaves coloured with my Copic Markers and then a touch of Distress Ink (Antique Linen) to bring out the embossing. A twine bow and an embossed sentiment (embossed in a mixture of gold and pewter powders to give an antiqued gold colour) The ornaments or little dots, whatever, on the wreath are Liquid Pearls in Platinum Pearl.
I have to admit, I had fun with this card. Usually when you are doing 20 of the same card it drags you down after about 5. Every time I made a card I looked at it and exclaimed "I love this card"
So... for those of you who will be receiving a Christmas card from me ... you may end up receiving a card from the exchange.
If you would like to receive a handmade card from me, leave me a comment with your email address and I will contact you for a mailing address - how is that for RAK??
In the meantime, let me know what you think of this card!
