Hello there. I’m whizzing in between wrapping presents, dropping children off at parties, baking and other seasonal delights to share a card featuring the fantastic Berry Good stamp and die sets from Avery Elle. Anyone who has stepped foot near my blog over the last month will not be surprised that today’s card features lots of GOLD! Yes, I am officially unable to create anything without it these days! I embossed the pear stamp in Gold Tinsel embossing powder from Ranger (my favourite) and then used a gold leafing pen to add the adhesive to the inside of the pear image. The has to dry for a few minutes before you add the gold flakes. Obviously a photo never captures the shine properyly but I love this product – it’s so pretty.
I used the You’re Invited die to cut the mat from Avery Elle Woodgrain cardstock and some leaves for my pear to nestle on (which came from the Fbulous Florals stamp set – again heat embossed in Gold Tinsel). The sentiments is from the Joy To The World stamp set.
Right, must dash, have a THOUSAND things left on my to do list before the BIG DAY!!
