Hobbycutz challenge 62 Ribbons & Pearls

Morning crafters, thank you for visiting me today, much appreciated. May I welcome my new followers its lovely to have you on board.

Today is another Challenge for you from Hobbycutz, this weeks challenge was chosen by our lovely John who chose Ribbons & Pearls.

I hope you choose to join in, do go over to the Hobbycutz Challenge web site at and view all the other wonderful creations the team has made.

I have made two cards for this challenge, here is the first:

I started my card off with a piece of White card, I got the Holly leaves embossing folder and brayed over with my versamark ink pad, inserted my White card and embossed it through my machine. I sprinkled Gold embossing powder over the card and heat embossed it. I coloured in the holly leaves and berries using Spectrum Noir pens, wrapped some Gold ribbon round the bottom and matted it onto some Green card.

I folded a sheet of Gold Miri card in half and embossed one side using the same embossing folder, this formed my base card. I attached my embossed gold card in the center. With more White card I stamped my sentiment using Forest Moss ink and die cut using Labels Twenty-Five, whilst still in the die I inked round with Forest Moss in the center and coloured the outside with a gold pen. I then decided to add some Double sided adhesive and cover with Micro beads. I placed this on top of my card then added some Red pearls where my berries were to cover the 'Pearls' bit!

I die cut some holly leaves and placed these on top of the bow along with some more Red Pearls for the berries.   The finished dimensions are 5"X7".

My second card is:

I started with my basic White card using Centura Pearl. Using more centura Pearl I ran it through the embossing folder Delicate Snowflakes but on the de-bossed side, I ran my brayer over the top with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Enchanted Gold embossing powder, this is the first time I have used this colour and it is so beautiful and sparkly(photo does not do it justice) I shall definitely use it again.

I wrapped some Silky Crush ribbon around it, made a bow and stuck this on to the left side. Using Sue Wilson's Vienna die I cut the middle piece out and stamped my greeting on it with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold Embossing powder, I attached this to the bottom right of the card.

To add my pearls I used Hobby house Pearls and placed one in the center of each of the large snowflakes and smaller ones in the smaller snowflakes. To finish the card I added a large Pearl in the center of the bow.

A very quick and easy card to make. Finished dimensions are 8"X8".
