World Card Making Day!

Today's World Card Making Day! I have prepared for a few Christmas cards today but most of the day was spent in the garage painting my shadow boxes/gadget shelves (don't know the english word for it). Oh, how I hate painting! The one I had was more than filled with my wooden stamps and yesterday I found another two at a flea market. I have postponed painting them for half a year already so it was about time! I have six boxes and each have 24 compartments. It took a few hours! I felt really sorry for myself, but kept thinking of how nice they will look on the wall in my craft room!

As a reward I also got to spend a few hours in my craft room! I really don't like painting!
In the latest issue of Craft Stamper there was an article about embossing Core'dination paper with chipboard shapes in a die cutting machine. The outcome was really pretty! I bought some wooden embellishments just to try this out. I found a handmade Indian paper, a little "thicker" than ordinary paper, in my shelves. I made a sandwich with the A plate, B plate, wooden embellishment, paper, embossing mat, B plate and ran it through my Cuttlebug. Painted the raised areas and stamped them with a script stamp before I removed the wooden embellishment. Simple, but yet eye catching!
