That Buddha again

This was an amazing coincidence - I had the Buddha stamp on my desk ready to make the card from my previous post, when the postie delivered a parcel - a bundle of beautiful First Edition 6 x 6 pads which I had won from Craft Label on Instagram. One of the pads was the Free Spirit pad, which I've had my eye on for some time, and just look at the main background paper I've chosen! It couldn't have been a better match for the stamp if I'd spent months searching for it. 

Naturally with a coincidence like that, I had so make a card straight away. I covered a card blank completely with the paper and ran a gold Delicata pad around the edge, then die cut circles of  one of the textured papers and gold mirri and placed them centrally on the card. 

Next I stamped and heat embossed the image on gold mirri - I wanted to emboss with black paper so I made sure to use the anti static pad very generously. Then I fussy cut it and arranged it over the circles. I finished off with a sentiment also cut from the pad. 

I am sharing this with
