Hi Everyone, my DT post for today is
I have a few cars and train dies and stamps, but decided after seeing a scrap of tin in my stash, to die cut this wonderful car. I had enough over to cut the holly.
The tin is left over from something I did years ago, just as well I kept it. I had cut a can of drink and then burnt it with the gas stove I had at the time. It gives lovely shading when done, as you can see, I hope. It's an old technique that I'm sure most of you would have done at some time.
I also used for the background, an embossing folder, which to me showed the journey. I made an error as I had actually die cut the circle, I then did the embossing and did it on the wrong side, so it was debossed! Do I cut again, no! I decided to colour the deboss trees with gold ink to match the tin car, and I think it turned out OK.
I stamped the sentiment and embossed it in gold onto the debossed image and die cut another circle layer from rose gold card, and added ribbon which just about matched. Thinking to make the card into a parcel? Simple, but I'm happy with it.
