My turn on the Quietfire Creations blog today with I think a very involved card... BIG GRIN - but loving all the little details...
I'm using some of the newest cardstock on the Elizabeth Craft Designs website. Just fabulous "Soft Finish". It's got a smooth side and a textured side. Both accept Pan Pastels wonderfully. It's like silky velvet. WOW is all I can say... The flowers, Friends word (also available on Quietfire Design HERE), and bird are done on the textured side, the leaves on the smooth side. The cardstock reacts beautifully to tooling.
Also using the "Bark" embossing folder from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
Anyway you can see all the details and descriptions, more views, and a pic of the pastel background by clicking on any card image or by clicking here to go to my website. Enjoy
I'm using a bunch of Quietfire Design quote and sentiment stamps. ("Keep Your Faith..."); ("Those who find..."); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set).
