Embossed Candles...

Now that I am in an embossing sort of mood, I can't put the folders away, typical of me, I don't use stuff for ages, then rediscover them and go a bit overboard. This row of embossed candles is another folder that I have never used. I embossed the candles onto vellum, and just coloured the flames lightly in pale yellow. I needed to stick the cut out panel onto the card, always tricky with vellum, so I used some foam pads, then covered that with a ribbon that has the sentiment stamped directly onto it......






I think Max has been having etiquette lessons. I usually have a very hasty little phone chat with him if I am lucky, but yesterday when asked to come and talk to me he said 'how are you, very nice to meet you' - the extreme politeness then disintegrated a bit while he chattered on about how the tooth fairy had forgotten to collect his tooth, then I had a very formal 'goodbye, it was very nice to talk to you today'. The whole elegant conversation was marred a little bit by the sound of three year old Milo yelling in the background 'I don't want to talk to Ma, I want to play in the garden....' Ah well, you win one, you lose one..

See you tomorrow when I'll show you the little boys birthday cards, they are turning out rather cute.....

  3. Your card is so pretty. I love the embossed and cutted candles on the white background. And the yellow ribbon with the big bow is a real eyecatcher.

  6. Thanks for sharing your wonderful card and telephone story. my daughter has never been fond of talking on the phone and that didn't ever change not even when she was a teen. I started using text messaging when she went off to college just to have a way to stay in touch. I understand about the embossing folders. I have a ton of them and have 36 sets of them coming from Cricut's sale they had.I have my favorite go to ones so I am trying to use the forgotten ones more.

  9. Oh wow, that card is stunning and I love the pre-stamped ribbon. I never think to use my vellum. I like the candles done that way. Once again the boys had such cute things to say.

  13. What a pretty card. Simple and elegant. I think we all rediscover supplies and products then can't get enough of them now and then. I do that with stamps too, I like what I make and end up using the same stamp again and again.
