Golden Wedding

Hi everyone, hope you are all well. I would like to say hello to my new followers and apologise for not having been around much last week. I will try and catch up with you all later. Bit of a change in the weather today, after such a fabulous weekend. I took my grandsons to Legoland on Sunday and the weather was glorious - the boys even went in the splash pools and fountains. My card today is one that I made for a friends wedding. Her colour scheme was gold so I made her card to match. This was the first time that I have tried inking the embossing folder, before embossing the card, I was quite happy with the result and it made the embossing look totally different. As I didn't have any wedding stamps when I made the card I used a LOTV die cut square mounted on gold card.

  1. This is fabulous. Love the embossed card and the effect you got with the inking xx

  2. Hi Kim, I was wondering where you had got to, I popped by a few times, glad you are back. I have wanted to try the ink in the embossing folder, but have been a bit wary, you have done it brilliantly though, so perhaps I'll bite the bullet!

  3. Hi sweetie,
    Lovely to see you back and with such a lovely card too. The inked embossing is so different, bringing it to life and that ribbon is gorgeous.
