Happy Wednesday, Friends!
Today I have a shabby, sweet birthday card to share with you that I made for the Sizzix blog featuring fabulous dies and embossing folders from Tim Holtz’s newest collections.
Of course we all know Tim’s fabulous Flower Garden stamps by now. Such favorites of mine. Mixed with them are two new Sizzix products from Tim’s line, the Stitched Ovals Thinlits die set and the Herringbone Texture Fade embossing folder.
The Herringbone embossing folder is part of the new Dapper collection, which is decidedly masculine in styling and imagery, but I think it can be used for so much more. I went super pink and girly on this design, in honor of my mom’s upcoming birthday this month. And I think girly works just fine.
My mom loves flowers, and her house is filled with antiques, so I went with a very vintage shabby look here with lots of worn edges, sanded surfaces, and Distress finishes. The flower was watercolored with Distress Inks, fussy cut, and popped up on foam tape for a bit of dimension. Gold embossing powder was added to the card base and frame. A little bit of glam with a whole lot of messy, just like me! 😉
I’ve got the full step-by-step tutorial up on the Sizzix blog, if you’d like to learn more.
Thanks so much for stopping by! And thanks for all the sweet comments and support on the opening of my new Summer Shop. You guys are the BEST!
