Love Is In The Details - Guest Designer at Cheery Lynn Designs

Top 3 at Card and Scrap
Today I am sharing my first guest project for Cheery Lynn Designs
This card is very different from my usual creations, it has no image but instead is filled with technique
If you follow the trends in card making you must have seen the popularity of the "Frantage" range of embossing enamels and all the wonderful creations people are making.
Well I don't claim to be an expert (gosh this is my first attempt with the product) but this is what I came up with after many hours going from blog to blog to fill my latest Pinterest board :)

Card Recipe:
Paper - Prima Nature Garden
Card Stock - Core Dinations Core Amour Sable and Onyx
Corrugated Card Stock - Fancy Pants Designs Country Boutique Corrugated Paper Kraft
Sentiment - K and Co Floral Word Embossed Sticker by Susan Winget
Fiber - On The Surface
Corduroy Brad - The Paper Studio
Buttons - Dress It Up
Paper Ribbon - Unknown
Embossing Enamels - Frantage by Stampendous in Embossing Shabby Green, Aged Rose and Aged Ivory
Micro Beads - Martha Stewart
Dies - French Pastry Doily, Carnivale Border, Mini Fanciful Flourish, Flourish Leaf Strip, Heartland America and Cutie 4 all by Cheery Lynn Designs

I wasn't sure whether the dies would work on the corrugated card, I have only ever used steel rule dies on product this thick, but oh my they cut through like butter! Even the border is cut from the corrugated card (although it got a little squashed as I turned it through the machine a few more times than it needed)
If you can see on the doily the cardstock came pre-embossed, all you have to do is sand it down a little to reveal the color core, a great time saver.
I used some old products here, the paper ribbon and fiber must be close to 10 years old, but I think with the muted tones and the texture to this card that they worked well, good job I'm not very good at purging old product!
Anyway, enough of my rambling, I hope you enjoyed this card and I'll be back next Saturday with another project for you.
