Here we are with the July blog hop already. This month’s theme was chosen by Sally – it’s Embossed Anniversary. I thought of these love birds right away because i love the best birds set and knew it would be perfect for embossing. This theme has provoked special memories for me as today 28th July 2018 would have been Mum and Dad’s 62nd wedding anniversary unfortunately Dad died 35 years ago. We were always on our summer holidays somewhere in South of England in our handmade caravan when their anniversary came round, so lots of fond memories. This one’s for you Dad – miss you loads.
I made the card above for this hop and then I filmed the method when making the one below.
The base card is an A4 sheet cut in half long ways and folded in half.
The first layer is 14.4cm x 10.1cm
The top layer is 14cm x 9.7cm
I used the large ‘hessian’ like stamp to give a textured background then stamped the branch where i wanted it. The birds and sentiment were stamped with versamark and heat embossed with gold or silver. The images were coloured using wink of stella and my chosen ink colours.
