August CCC Reveal

Today is the day for the August Card Chain Challenge reveal.

My card went to Arlene in California.

One of the options this month was foil so I made this card:

I think I have probably cheated a bit as I used foiled card but I decided it didn't matter. The cover die is from Altenew and I made this card first and then used the frames left over from the inlaying to make these.

I do enjoy using this technique, it can be a real fiddle but the pieces from this die are a good size and it is very satisfying when it is done. The hardest thing about this was the heat embossing on the foil, I did it 3 times and none of them were perfect. My close up picture doesn't show the heat embossing, I wonder why!

This month I received this lovely card from Lucille:

Don't those pies make your mouth water?

Here is my card:

This is made with the pen sketched flowers stamp set by Atenew. The 2 flowers were stamped in versafine onyx black ink, I then created a mask by stamping the same image onto a post it note and fussy cutting the image so that I could stamp the leaves. I lightly coloured the flower and leaves with my Zig clean colour real brush pens.

I used washi tape for the boarder and stamped the sentiment (from the same stamp set) below it. I used a stitched frame die and mounted on coloured card stock (adorable scorable) and finished it off with a few sequins. Here is a close up:

I am hoping that my humble card might inspire you to take part in this months challenge particularly as it is anything goes so what's to lose?
