Hello, my friends. These projects were inspired by the new LIM challenge. I started with one card but then as often happens, they mushroomed :).
I knew I wanted to use kraft card. So I hunted for a stamp that inspired and I found this one by Claritystamp. It talks about the Christmas star. So I stamped it in versamark ink and embossed it with white detail powder. I die cut a small star from the centre and another in white card.
I added iced diamond to the star and also to the white mat. The star is stuck proud with collal glue gel. I then added seed beads from my stash (real objects).
I like the idea so I decided to make a couple more that were even simpler. Using the same stamp, I embossed it with black detail powder on the white and Hematite on the ivory. This time I added wooden stars apart from seed beads which I hope will count towards the real object.
So now I have 3 more ready for the big day. Hugs, Theresa xx.
I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:
Simply less is more - add a real object

Lovely set of cards, Theresa. The white embossing looks beautiful on Kraft. The real beads are a fun touch. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More. :) TrinaReplyDelete
