CAS Colours and Sketches #447


Ready for a new sketch?  Check out the CAS Colours and Sketches blog for this week's new challenge.  

I used some embossing techniques and had enough to create two cards this week.
  First up is the one displayed on the CC&S blog.

And a bonus card because I didn't want any of that 
beautiful clear embossed cardstock to go to waste.

My cards began with a large background stamp, red cardstock and clear embossing powder.  I cut the embossed piece down to 4"x5.25" card panel size to create my first card.  I used an embossing folder to create texture onto a strip of matte gold cardstock which I adhered vertically as in the sketch.  I die cut the sentiment in white with a gold shadow layer and adhered a messy nest of gold metallic thread before adhering the sentiment to the card front.  Card two used the leftovers from the clear embossed piece and is pretty self explanatory in assembly.  I love when I can get a "two-fer" without much effort.

I invite you to visit the blog for more details and inspiration from my fellow teammates.  We'd love to see you card in our gallery!

  1. What gorgeously rich and festive cards Jules! I particularly like the second more CAS version which really seems to show off your clear-embossed panel and I love the perfectly positioned gold dots. Vicky x

  2. Two for one - bonus!! I love the embossing on both versions Jules; I love that the second one really allows that clear embossing to shine! Fabulous.
