As you can see i'm still bonkers about puzzle cards...and in fact i'm getting complaints from people who get regular non~puzzle cards now, too!! This one is for my Mum who's Birthday is next week...
i find it very difficult to photograph gold embossing and make it look sparkly and as it does in real life...hopefully the close~up gives you a slightly better idea..? if any of you have any tips out there for photographing shiny surfaces, i'd love to hear them...so please share them in the comments form! Thanks :)
i then overstamped most of the images and embossed in gold, not inking my stamp between impressions so that some places take the embossing more than others. i added a Happy Birthday stamp, also embossed and swiped my embossing pad all around the edges to give them a touch of the Midas too.
all i have to do now is break it apart and pop it in an envelope...oh...and think of a present to go with it ;0)
