It's my turn to post over at the Delicious Doodles Blog and as thing have been a bit hectic here this week I needed a fast make. When I saw this Little Nut Tree (due for release today) over at the Delicious Doodles Shop I just knew it would be perfect for something I've been wanting to try out for ages, which if everything went to plan would be a fast make. I wasn't sure it was going to work, but thought nothing ventured nothing gained! As you can see it did work and I'll definitely be using this technique again. The only thing I'd possibly change is the ribbon, but this was all I had in my stash. From start to finish the card took less than 30 minutes.
Going to have to apologise in advance for the number of piccies, but struggled to get a decent shot and wanted to show the embossing and true colour of the card.
The image was printed, heat embossed and then cut out. The card base has been cut using nesties labels 8 and then embossed with Sizzix Texturz . I've run a gold inkpad around the edges and over the embossing, added a bit of ribbon and a sentiment.
