Here's another easel card I made for the Twelve Month Mystery Box Challenge. This one also uses stamps from World Treasures stamp set and paper from Mocha Morning Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack (now retired).
The peacock stamp is embossed with gold, silver and Early Espresso Embossing Powders, and hand cut around the tail feathers.
The greeting stamp from my most used stamp set "Curly Cute" is embossed with Early Espresso Embossing Powder too. You know, I hardly did any heat embossing in the last couple of years - and yet that was what made me fall in love with stamping in the first place! It creates such a beautiful finish on the projects and I am so happy that Stampin' Up! have been introducing more and more colours to our range of embossing powders.
But I guess you'd like to see what the card looks like when it's open and standing up?
So many of my favourite products here - the Antique Brad, Soft Suede card and Early Espresso Ink, that gorgeous Paper Doily Sizzlit which works a treat now I know to put waxed kitchen paper with it!
I'l be back tomorrow with two more cards that I created with these papers and colours, for the second month of the 2012 Mystery Box challenge.
p.s. For all of you ladies who ordered products from Weeks 1 to Week 4 of the Clearance Rack Blitz, the final Week 4 items arrived by post yesterday and I had a new Eftpos machine delivered here about an hour ago, so I will be endeavouring to catch up with you all shortly to organise delivery and payment. Thanks so much for supporting this amazing promotion, lots of you ladies got yourselves some great bargains and it was lovely for me to hear from so many of you over the normally fairly quiet Christmas period. Enjoy your new goodies!
