Goldene Hochzeit (Golden Wedding) Card

Good morning. I thought I'd write a quick post before I crack on. Mum and Dad have been up to stay for a week; I've had a great time but I now have a lot to catch up on and I haven't even started this month's Clarity samples!

This is another card from the German show. I think the old couple look so cute together on the bench and they could well be celebrating their Golden Wedding Anniversary, hence the card.

I wanted the tree stencil to be embossed in gold over the top of the scene but my first attempt wasn't very successful.

I taped off the border of the stencil so that I could then ink up the central part with Versamark ink. I then removed the tape and placed the stencil onto card (which I had rubbed with an anti-static bag) and ran it though my Ebosser to transfer the ink.

However, when I applied the powder I ended up with a right mess thanks to the sticky residue the tape had left behind. I was never going to get rid off all those specks so I had to do it another way.

I also realised that I needed to do the scene first.

So I did that and then created a card frame that I could ink through. No sticky residue this time and I was left with a lovely gold embossed frame around the scene that matched the inner one.

Some punched hearts hanging from the tree finish it off.
