3 for 1, sweet kids, thinking of you

I love it when I make a card for 1 challenge and then it ends up fitting more! Started this for PTW challenge which this week is elegant embossing then I remembered that Saturday's Workout was embossing too and then Wednesday Stamper this week is stripes! It almost fits' another challenge too but isn't quite as the sketch so I'll not force it and leave it at 3!

As it was elegant embossing, good excuse for me to use my 'Sweet Kids' set again. The images are quite small so I managed to use a few of them to create a longer scene. Have embossed the images with a holographic black embossing powder (if you click on photo you might be able to see it better) and coloured with distress inks. Also dry embossed the card blank with a criss cross pattern using my Scorpal. Wanted to give the square cards a break and do a DL size card for a change.

Materials:

  • Images: girl, boy, tiny flowers & sentiment are all from 'sweet kids' set
  • Papers: DCWV floral pad
  • Others: flowers, brads and gems from stash.

Frances, what a gorgeous card! I recognize the striped yellow and violet paper since I used to have some of that myself. You did a fantastic job of multi-crafting!
