Good evening all. It is lovely to be here and all posts should be on time now as our internet is up to speed, I still can't get much signal in my room but hopefully the new booster which is on it's way will sort that.
Anyhow this week at My Time To Craft we are all challenged with 'Fantasy' and I knew what I was going to make as soon as I saw the challenge. I had seen this clam shell card in the Silhouette store and had wondered how I could use it and this was the perfect time. I haven't made it for anyone in particular but just loved making it.
I started by colouring a Sweetpea Stamp by Elisabeth Bell called 'Glimmer'. Once coloured I decided to add clear holographic embossing powder to her tail for a bit of sparkle, it really does shimmer but I could not get it to show up however you can see how it shows up on the 'splash' word below. I next cut my card elements to match the size of my image and it turned out to be about 5"x7". As I said I added embossing powder to the 'splash' word and also the 'make' and 'a' but again those are not very clear. This is my first pop up card and it was so easy to make, I added a photo to try and show the folds but it was not easy. All the bubbles have glossy accents on them too.
The shell closed up.
A close up where you can see the shimmer a bit better.
