The next two feature focal elements which I created in the process of making birth announcements for my grand daughter last fall. For the left hand card I layered the laser printed and embossed background onto the front of a lavender card after I had added a length of purple seam binding. I added the cute little elephant layered element over the seam binding using 3D foam tape and tied a short piece of seam binding with one single knot to the one on the front to simulate a bow.
I layered my laser printed greeting onto a label punchie (SU) and adhered it to the card using 3D foam tape. For the right hand card, I created a background using colour printed background paper in purples on lavender cardstock, punched the one side using an eyelet border punch (SU) and then embossed a line using my score tool which helps add texture and define the edge of the colour printing. To add still more texture I embossed it with the Swiss Dot embossing folder. I added a length of white gros grain ribbon to the background before adhering it to my white card front. I layered my laser printed greeting punchie to a purple label punchie (SU) and adhered it over the ribbon with 3D foam tape after I added my little elephant focal element to the right hand side. Was fun to work with different colours and supplies!! Therese
