Cards and Creative Embellishments

I've made a couple of cards for you today using Graphic 45's Enchanted Forest paper collection.  First up is a Happily Ever After card with a fun, fun, fun, Creative Embellishments  cobblestone castle on the front.  I love this little castle, I just misted it with Lindy's Long John Silver Moonshadow Mist to color it.  Misting is a great way to color chipboard that has been laser etched, reason being, that the mist does not fill in the etched design and so preserves all the fine details.

I used Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders Two to make my cuts there at the bottom.  Eh, that detail is somewhat obliterating by the ribbon and flowers but it's there and I love the bracket look.  I cut 3 different borders and layered them on top of the card base.

I also framed the Graphic 45 Ephemera card with a small rectangular frame that I heat embossed with aged taupe to give it an old world distressed look.

Creative Embellishments Supplies:

Other Supplies:
Graphic 45 Enchanted Forest 8 x 8 pad
Stampendous Aged Taupe Embossing Enamel
Lindy's Long John Silver Moonshadow Mist

Petaloo Mini Daisy Petites x 40 - antique peach 1839-051
Seam binding ribbon
Spellbinders A2 Bracket Borders Two

Next a card with a pull out tag and the cutest little Creative Embellishments dragon.  I just love that fella! First I misted/painted him with Dylusions White Linen.  Using a thin mist like that allows the etchings to show through the color.  Then I dabbed on Lindy's gold and red mists.

The tag is from Graphic 45's new Inspire, Create, Imagine-Kraft Tags that are so fun. The tag just slips in behind the ephemera card.
I used an oval CE frame to focus on the quote from Tolkien.  I used Prima Empress Gold mist to color it.  And finally, for some pretty color, I added Petaloo blooms!
