365 cards day 98: it's an anniversary

This is my card for day 98 on 365 cards, where the challenge was: 'so I want to see anniversary cards....with a catch (of course). Make the dominant color white -- what!? Oh yes, it can be done - it just requires simplicity :)'

I think mine is a bit too simple - haven't done a card like this for a while. The card is hammered white, the champagne etc is from a Dena kit and the sentiment from stash, both mounted on to silver mirror card.

Triple embossing

For this card I followed the sketch for Everybody Art challenge 42:

I prepared the chipboard flowers as follows:

Plain chipboard, swiped with versamark and heat embossed with pearl UTEE, twice
Stamped with Stazon blazing red using the Tim Holtz paisley stamp - this only left a very vague image
Heat embossed with clear UTEE and stamped into it while hot, using Funstamps paisley background stamp
Swiped over the shape and edges with Stazon blazing red

The papers are BG Infuse.

Cute Daisy May challenge atm is 'let's emboss', so I'm linking for that and for Net's 'cute card challenge' on CBC - and also for One Stop Craft challenge 32 'under pressure' (embossing).

This is also for Rosie's challenge 37 on Rosiedee: 'triple embossing'.

This week's challenge on Mixed Media Monday is 'layers', so I'm submitting this card there, as there are layers of UTEE.

I've just realised that the copics colouring is pants - I was so concentrating on the triple embossing that I didn't pay much attention to the colouring in - I'll try and put that right.

I have two more triple embossed chippie flowers to use on another project:

Diamonds are forever

The challenge on day 97 (Friday) on 365 cards was Shape up 2: diamond.

I cut the diamong shape on my cricut (from the wedding/marriage cartridge), using some BG porcelain paper for the blackout shape behind the gold mirror card. The main background is also from BG porcelain range.

As I've used die cuts, this is also good for Cute Card Thursday 63: 'nip and a punch' - to use punched shapes or die cuts.
