Hampton Art | 'Use it or Lose it'

Friday, June 27, 2014

Thank goodness it's Friday!

Recently I had a little re-organise of my craft space and I realised just how much of it I don't use so I've made a conscious decision to 'use it or lose it'. So, I opened my drawer of embossing folders and decided that it was high time I gave them the attention they deserve.

DESIGNED FOR | Hampton Art

1. Firstly I cut and folded my card so that it measured 5" x 4" folded.
2. The patterned paper panel (5" x 3.75") was adhered using pop dots and positioned to the right of the card which allowed the 1/4" overhang on the left.
3. The white top panel (5" x 3.5") was embossed first and then adhered in position.
4. All the embellishing elements to the card were layered, again using foam pop dots and then to finish the card I added a few gems and then finally the die-cut wise word sticker sentiment.
