Good morning duckadees. Heating having to go on in the pond now as its getting decidedly brrrr!!!
Mr Duck returned from North of the Border today, glad to be home after waking to -5 this morning. No tablet but a bunch of flowers and a bottle of Prosecco (I can live with that lol!!!)
Meant to say, I loved Jenny's story about her parents living in India. Reminded me of those dramas on TV set in the days of the Raj. My Grandad was from India so it made me smile.
Glad that decorating is finished Sue. At least you're sorted in time for Christmas. Welcome back Jackie. Hope you had a good time with your Mum and Jacquie, I promise no more bad jokes. . . . . .if I can help it hahaha!!!
Now, today's card is the last of this years Diwali collection and was for Nesta's sister and hubby.
Its a 6x6 PMD cream linen card base to start. I then cut another piece of cream linen card a fraction smaller all round. Out of this piece, I cut the SB Die D-Lites Grate Works four times to create four apertures. I then cut four of the Grate Works from gold mirror card. I stuck the cream aperture layer onto the base card,then stuck the gold die cuts into the apertures.
I cut the 3rd SB Captivating Squares die out of cream and gold card. On the cream one, I gold heat embossed an Om symbol and then foam padded the gold, then the cream squares at opposite angles onto the middle of the card.
I used a Debbi Moore gold embossing powder which is quite matt in appearance, so I wasn't 100% happy with it. After seeing John's Holly and Ivy (here) and its shiny gold embossing, he has advised me of the brand he uses, so I shall keep a look out at the NEC.
I also embossed the envelopes with the That Special Touch Moroccan Mask and none of them wanted to rip the envelopes open, bless.
That's me done for now chaps and chapesses. I have an A4 card to make for a ladies 94th birthday so wish me luck.
Have a great day folks.
