Brown & Cream

Hello my crafting friends, things are going as well as  can be expected, everything is arranged and the funeral will be over in a couple of weeks. I have managed to comment on some posts so I do apologize for any I may have missed, not intentional just did not have the time. Thank you to each and everyone of you for your kind comments, patience and understanding.

I hope you are all well on this fine weekend? I do wish this weather would pick up a bit its back to rain down here lol!

 I decided to make a card in colours that I do not usually choose but I thought it would make a change!

I got some Brown Pearlescent card and my favourite Cream 'leather look' card and cut out the base easel and toppers with Sue Wilson Austrian Collection Innsbruck & Saltzburg.

I turned the base card into an easel card matting and layering as I went with the Cream & White card making sure all layers were equal.

On the top Cream card I stamped a sentiment from Unmounted stamps 'Friends Sentiments'

For the stopper on the base I used my Versamark ink pad and stamped the symbol from Sheena's Little Bit Sketchy stamps 'Be Strong' then heat embossed it three times using embossing Tinsel Copper then die cut it out with Standard Circles Large.

For the inside of the card I die cut using the same dies but in Cream and attached this to the inside of the card as seen.

I made sure when making this that it all closed up tight so nothing was showing on the outside.

There you have the finished card.
