Embossed Wedding Bells
Two embossing folders were used to create this CAS, 5 1/2 inch square wedding card. The bells were from the Sizzix Textured Impressions “Together Forever” set (#661488). The background was made with the “Dotty Floral” folder by Apple Blossom Designs (#EFOB0056). This folder is large – 6 x 6 inches. (I trimmed my panel down to 5 x 5 inches for this card.) The embossing effect on these folders is very strong, and so it is recommend that thick card in excess of 250gsm be used. However, the card stock I wanted to use was light weight, so I lightly spritzed the card stock with water before running it through my machine which seemed to prevent it from cracking. I used my Big Kick with the multi-purpose platform ( no shims/tabs) and 2 cutting plates.
The background card stock is from the Recollections Shimmer Silver & Champagne pack and has a beautiful, subtle shimmer to it (which you can see a bit better below). I love this paper for “elegant” card designs.
I embossed the wedding bells on water color paper (I love the texture!) and added a few pearls to finish it off.
Thanks for checking out my card project.
