Blue blooms


I recently bought some Coordinations Black Magic card and I have wanted to try this for ages. I ran the card with a blue back through the Big Shot with a Cuttlebug embossing folder then sanded the raised parts to reveal the blue beneath. I have mounted it on blue card, then a black blank, punched it with a Martha Steward Lattice Arch punch, added ribbon, three blooms and 6 brads as per the ABC challenge blog list. Greeting embossed in clear ink (Papermania Stamp set from the Daisy and Dandelion range), and some pastel blue embossing powder.

  1. This is brilliant Cazzy, the sanded embossing looks great - I have some of this card but haven't really used it much, must dig it out and get sanding! I really like how you've kept everything to the same colours too. Nicki, xx.

  4. A really stylist and elegant card Cazzy. The embossing looks superb on that sanded Black Magic paper and your matched your embellishments to the blue colour so well. Love it. Thanks for joining the Creative Card Crew Challenge.
