Call To Me

Call To Me

Classy Cards products used

1.  Place a piece of 5.50 x 4.25 inch white card stock in Spellbinders Whimsy embossing folder.
2.  Very lightly “kiss” only the raised portion with a sponge inked with a light brown or tan ink.  In this case I used CTMH Bamboo.  Attach to an A2 plain white card base.  (A2 = 5.50 x 4.25 inches, also called a quarter fold)
3.  Now position Spellbinders Label 29 in the exact center of a 5.50 x 4.25  inch piece of white card stock, tape into place, cut and then emboss with the rubber mat.
4.  Lightly sponge the outer and inner edges of the newly cut frame with
     the same ink used on the embossing folder piece..
5.  Since I like the 3-D effect I have attached cut pieces of flat from a
     paper egg carton to the back the frame.
6.  Attach the frame to the card base.
7.  After lightly sponging your greeting with the same tan or brown ink,
     it too is 3-D’ed with flat piece of egg carton and glued inside the frame
     and over the embossed piece.  In this case the greeting is a scripture
     that I have created in PSP X and cut with a Spellbinders Nesting
8.  With plain white paper again, cut one of Cheery Lynn Designs butterflies
     and the angel wings that go under the butterfly.
9.  With that same tan or brown ink heavily sponge the angel wing (liner) and
     lightly sponge the edges of the butterfly.
10.  Position the butterfly “artfully” on the card front.

Notes and comments – the same ink is sponged on all the pieces used in the design.  The design can be made totally in white with no sponging, but for my purposes here the sponging really helps show the layers and embossing.

The embossing with a rubber mat is not a must with the frame, but I find that it is one of those little touches that really adds a classy look the finished product.
