When going through my computer files of pictures I realised this is a card from last year which didn't get posted.  It is one of the samples made for demonstrations showing techniques using embossing folders and the folder had been loaned to me for that reason.  After embossing I used brushes to apply Distress ink to bring out the detail in the scene, then die cut some little birds to sit in the branches and some cats to sit on the ground observing them.  I felt all this needed was a simple greeting which I added on a die cut shape (also embossed and inked).

I'm off now to go and sit by the fire because my fingers and toes are getting very cold sitting here in front of the computer.  It's been a beautiful day with lots of sunshine but very cold and the forecast is for more sub zero temperatures - brrr!!!!

Cats and Birds - Memory Box dies
Embossing Folder - on loan and I've forgotten who made it
Label shapes - Sue Wilson dies
Words - Creative Expressions, Phill Martin stamp


  1. Don't blame you for sitting by the fire Val, I have my heating on to keep warm. I love this card and the beautiful embossing folder that you've used for it.
