Daring Cardmakers - Suitcase
Hi All, another late, to the wire submission for the Daring Cardmakers challenge. This weeks theme is 'Suitcase'. I started my card with the subject - the suitcase. I ran some light-brown coloured cardstock through my Big Shot machine embossing it with a dotty embossing plate. I then stamped over the raised side of the paper with an embossisng pad and dusted it with clear embossing powder and heat set it. The effect was 'sort-of' a patent-leathery look. I added a dark-brown handle and some corners of black cardstock held on with ordinary office brass brads I finished off by rounding the corners and viola! there was my suitcase.
I was fortunate to have a travel themed scrapbook kit and I was able to pull the background paper and embellishments from this. I am quite please with my 'Come fly with me!' card and I hope you like it too.
Thanks again for stopping by and don't forget to leave your comments. I love to hear from you.
