Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
Ok, so maybe it's a little early for Christmas carols, but I made my original card for the SCS Challenge TLC227, Faux Burnt Edges. Well, honestly, this is really more my speed. Last time I tried real fire was a disaster. I tried soot stamping. . . .yeah, not something I should do. A ton of wasted cs, lots of burnt paper later, and a small smoldering trash can and I never did get a look I liked.
So, faux burnt edges – I had to try it. I used a very neglected SU Bravo Burgundy and a much loved SU Soft Suede for this card. I didn’t have any shimmery cs, so I made my own and here’s a close up of it.
I really liked the way this card turned out and it was pretty quick , so I made a couple of different versions for possible Christmas cards this year.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!
