Special Occassion Easel Card - Victoria

Hello everyone hope your all well, I have some very exciting news to share with you all I have been very fortunate to be invited to join The very talented Tonic Design Team to say i am excited is an understatement it is an absolute honour and privilege and i am so looking forward to creating with fabulous products i hope you can all share my journey.

I have been playing with the fabulous Indulgence Chalkboard Die and stamp sets and have been having great fun with these sets so many possibilities.
So this is the card i would like to share with you today.

Dies used:-
Tonic Indulgence Chalkboard
Special Occasion Die & Stamp Set

The card is a 7"x7" easel card the embossed background is from Tonic and is a rose embossing folder
I matt & layered the base card and used the centre die to use as the stopper i added 2mm foam pads underneath the top part of the easel i cut the base in red and then added the white embossed card and glued together i then wrapped the wide red satin ribbon around the back and glued in place then i put the card together .

I then cut the special occasion die out,the base of the indulgence i cut in silver mirri and then cut 2 of the next layer out in white card stock and also red card stock i glued the white and red slightly off set and then glued to the silver base ,the top part of the card i stamped the greeting with versamark ink pad which is clear for embossing i placed a piece of white stamping card on my glass cutting board and rubbed the card with an anti static pad i do this so the embossing powder doesn't stick to bits i don't want it to and gives a more professional finish i then stamp firmly down on my card stock i used a red fine embossing powder to the card and tap off the excess and put the remaining powder back in the jar i then heat from the under side of the card stock to get a smoother finish once the powder is melted i set the card stock to one side for a min to cool down i then place the die around the sentiment and cut out , then place this down on foam pads

The finishing touches are the red pearls across the bottom and a double bow stuck down with a hot glue gun.

Until next time
