"Hugs & Kisses"
Here is a topper I have made that is not only a DT card for Emergency Crafters (link on the right hand side) but also is my entry for this month challenge over at
I took an A5 piece of black cardstock and trimmed a few mm of 2 sides so I knew it would fit onto the A5 piece of gold cardstock.
I ran this through the Grand Caliber using the Divine Swirls embossing folder made by provocraft which is available from Craftsite I ran it through twice and as its not a repeating pattern I knew I would need to cover the join. I had intended to ink over the piece with Perfect Medium and emboss with gold embossing powder. However, when I poured the embossing powder over the piece, I wasn't happy with the result so dusted it all off and was pleasantly surprised with the effect left on the black card. I polished it with a piece of kitchen roll and it gave it a bit of a shine.
Using the Asian Spellbinders Die set, also available from Craftsite , I cut 2 of the borders and laid them side by side along the centre of the embossed card and trimmed the ends.
I then die cut the central topper and inked through the die again with Perfect Medium, removed the die carefully and using a Hero Arts sentiment stamp, stamped into the centre of the circle and embossed with gold embossing powder.
I then cut 4 corners and also a plaque which I cut in half and placed behind the central topper.
