I still can't quite believe it! What seemed an impossible task at the beginning of this month -a mountain too high to climb- I have actually achieved. I use the word "I" very loosely...I feel like I have hand hands helping me up the whole way, and I most certainly couldn't have done it without you all. It's funny, that the reward I thought I was aiming for has become secondary to what I learnt along the way...and I know I'm getting all philosophical now, but isn't that just life in a nutshell? Earning the trip is fabulous, but discovering that I had so much support out there means so much to me and that has been the best thing that has happened this month. So you all have my heartfelt thanks for that.
It is such a relief to be at the top of this mountain!
I have a couple of last Summer Mini projects to show you. Here's a card I made for an embossing workshop a little while ago (Hi Marilyn!)
We embossed Razzle Dazzle in silver. I made the large circle with my Circle Scissor and framed it with a scallop edge. To make the Scallop frame, just punch a scalloped strip using the Scallop Edge punch, make some cuts along the way (every second scallop) and work it around the circle. I also crimped mine too, to give it a ruffled texture. The rest of the card is nice and simple....En Francais background, and some Taffeta Ribbon
TIP: Do you sometimes struggle to find a place for your greeting? Try punching a hole from the front of your card, and popping the greeting inside. For this card, I have a Wide Oval on the inside (with that gorgeous Swirly Oval from Vintage Labels Sale-a-Bration set) and I punched a Large Oval from the front of my card.
