I am slowly scanning my dad’s 35 mm slides from my childhood, wanting to scrapbook them while I can still remember some of the details, or at least verify them with my parents. The colours and patterns seem to go perfectly with my pictures from the 1970’s and I love that there is a matching cardstock stack.
I find the DCWV paper to be so gorgeous that it pretty much stands alone without much embellishment. So, I left the layout very simple, just adding a bit of fussy cutting and some metallic chipboard flourishes.
The flourishes were just the perfect touch for this patterned paper. I used the Elegant Flourishes die to die cut some Grafix Chipboard. Since it is a Sizzix Bigz die, it cuts through the chipboard like butter.
Then I coated the chipboard pieces with Clearsnap Embossing Ink and gold embossing powder. I made a bunch while I was at it. There is something so magical about melting embossing powder. It never gets old. Simple pleasures.
Here’s the layout:
Since I had made extra flourishes, I used them to make cards. With all that gold, I wanted to add even more, so I pulled out my Krylon gold leafing pen. So easy to use and it just adds that special touch. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L also makes gold photo corners so I used some of them too.
Here are the cards I created!
Supplies: DCWV Coral Couture paper and cardstock stacks, Sizzix die and die cutting machine, Clearsnap ink and embossing powder, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Beacon Adhesives, Krylon gold leafing pen, Brother sewing machine, Grafix chipboard.
