Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with special guest - Rachel Tessman

Welcome and thank you for joining me in a special Crazy Crafters team blog hop.

We are hopping with a special guest - Rachel Tessman from the United States. Rachel has been a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator for 17 years (Wow!) and last year placed #67 out of the top 100 Demonstrators world wide - what an achievement.

The theme of this blog hop was to CASE (Copy And Selectively Edit) one of Rachel's cards.

Here is the card of Rachel's that I chose to CASE:

To checkout Rachel's card in more detail click here.

Here is my version:

My card uses the same layout as Rachel's card, but I've gone with a Black and Copper theme.

Now, I don't have any copper foil cardstock so I had to make my own for this card using copper embossing powder.

The backdrop behind the negative die cut uses copper washi tape, plus I've wrapped a bit of copper thread around my top layer and embossed my sentiment (from Dragonfly Dreams) in Copper as well. There is SO much copper.

Want detailed instructions on how I made this?
See below for details regarding a PDF Tutorial available for purchase for less than the price of a coffee :)
