Decided to put together a craft care package for Tiffany. No clue what she has, so I figured I'd take a guess and send her some things she may not have ... however, if she has something like it already, one can always do with more, right? :)
She's asked about embossing, so I thought it would be a good idea to send her some embossed cardstock. She'd be able to see what embossing folders are out there and make a card with them :) Most embossing folders will cover a 4.25"x5.5" piece of cardstock. However, there are a few larger ones out there, which cover 5.75"x6.5" piece of cardstock. As you can see, there's quite a few designs out there ... ok, I guess that means I have quite a few designs ;)
Here's a few individual shots of some of them ... hopefully, you'll be able to see the design. I did two of each ... nope ... it's not all the embossing folders I have . I put a limit on the number I was doing, so I wouldn't be sending only embossed cardstock :)
In line with that thought, I sent her some die cuts to give her an idea of what she could do with a machine that embosses and die cuts.
I die cut a bunch of labels using Papertrey Ink's Jar Labels 2 die and heat embossed some sentiments on them ... this way Tiffany could see what heat embossing is all about. Of course, I had to do a few with the Photo Finish Strips die as well. I stopped there ... I didn't want to get carried away ;) I sent her some blank ones as well, so she could put her own sentiment by writing it, using stickers or rub-ons.
And you can't go without a little sparkle on your cards, so sent her some glitter and Stickles. She'll be able to add that little touch of shine to her cards! I just love Stickles ... oh, and I just love finding glitter on hubbie ... unfortunately, he doesn't feel the same way ;)
I put some Stickles in the middle of the flowers and a bit on the butterfly to demonstrate a little goes a long way. BTW, Tiffany you don't need to cut the nozzle. If nothing comes out when you squeeze, just use a needle to clear the nozzle.
You don't need a lot of glitter ... I usually just put my finger on the glitter and a bit sticks to my finger ... then I just sprinkle it on. This little bit is enough to just add a little sparkle to the card. I usually don't put more than that. WARNING: You may (ok, most likely) end up with glitter on yourself.
Here's a better picture of the card. The flower stamp and sentiment are from Papertrey Ink, and the butterfly is from Hero Arts. I stamped the sentiment on leftover paper from making Mei Mei's wedding invitations.
