Today I am showcasing a card I made that doubles as a gift also.
I started by using my Amazing Mold Putty to recreate an ornament that I have. It has a lot of delicate detail and I just love it, but it's also very heavy. So I thought I could create a resin of it. If you want to see how this stuff works head on over to their site or you can check out a few other things our DT has made.
and here is my mold (I've used it multiple times
with different methods). I didn't want the "Happy Holidays"
embedded so after I molded the piece I added a bit of
the putty over the wording and it covered it up. Genius I say!!!
I used the Amazing Casting Resin (liquid to solid in 5 minutes)
and painted it using green and red acrylic paints. See how you can't
see where the wording was?
My goal is to whomever I give this ornament to, I
am going to stamp their name or the date onto
the ribbon area and they will have a keepsake
ornament from me.
I used removable glue dots to attach it to a card
front and voila....there you have it. So I guess my first card of the
year long blog hop was more about the ornament than the card,
but I hope you enjoyed it anyway.
Now head on over to Cynthia's blog and check out what she has in store for you. Remember there is a link on the left side bar with all the stops for you also. See you in two weeks.
