Shimmer Mask

In yesterday’s post I showed you the card I made by smearing Versamark ink over a Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card and embossing it with the new Shimmer White Stampin’  Emboss Powder.  Today I’m going to show you what I did with the piece of cardstock that I placed under the lacy card front and was masked during this process.

​Here it is in the roughest form:

And cut down to layer on a card front:
I decided to cut out the centre medallion with a Layering Circle Die, and then punched holes around to weave some ¼” Textile Ribbon through.  I layered that on a piece of Mint Macaron run through the Tufted 3D Embossing Folder, and mounted it on a Mint Macaron card base.  The sentiment is another one suitable for a wedding, and is from the Darling Label Punch Box.
That left me with the rest of the embossed panel for another project.  I had cut the centre medallion out of another Laser-Cut Card front some time ago for another project, and still had it saved.  So I popped it into the hole I’d cut in the embossed panel and quite liked how it looked.
I simply mounted both pieces to a Pretty Peacock base and added the sentiment stamped in Versamark and embossed with Shimmer White embossing powder.  

I hope you decide to take a chance and play with your stamping supplies – it’s fun to see what you can come up with!
