Took a class for my birthday, ON my birthday. It was soooo much fun!! I love Archiver's classes and especially anything that is based on Tim Holtz products.
This was my favorite card, going in!! I loved the silhouette. We covered it in shabby embossing powder. It's these GIANT chunks of white embossing powder w/chunks of gold glitter. Awesome!!! And, the bottom is glitter ribbon. It's so cool. Should have taken a close up of that! There are poinsettias stamped all over the background but VERY SUBTLE!
All the cards in this class were made some very cool shimmery card stock. We sanded almost all the shimmer off & then stamped. Very cool technique. Next time I'm in Archiver's, I'm going to have to buy some of that paper. I think the card could be made just as easily with regular card stock..
This is an EXTREME close up of the embossing. You can see the red of the background stamp. One of the girls wiped hers off & all of it turned PINK. I said I'd just leave mine, you can't tell it from a "real life" distance. LOL
