A Crafting Journey!

 Today was my opportunity to post to the Facebook Page for Lizzie Anne Designs, so be sure to visit the FB page for more inspiration and the latest info on all things Lizzie Anne! This card features images from the November Mix, "Key to Happiness". I love this sentiment. Really makes you think, which occasionally is a good thing! The sentiment was stamped on the print panel at the bottom of the card. The top background was created with the Dreamweaver "Flourishes" stencil on Coredinations cardstock embossed with the Big Shot, and the top surface sanded lightly. The focal point, the ship, was stamped and embossed on a piece of sea glass. I was really happy with the effect of this. I picked up a bag of sea glass on clearance somewhere and was dying to play with it. It does add a little more weight to the card, which means a seriously strong dimensional adhesive, and if you were to mail it, you should probably put it in a bubble envelope. an additional tip for embossing on glass: Clean the surface with rubbing alcohol, rub with talcum or a anti-static medium to prevent embossing powder from sticking in the wrong areas, and it will take quite a while before the powder melts, but afterwards...that glass will be HOT for quite a few minutes!
