Hello again! I’ve really been enjoying all the time I’ve had recently to make fun cards. It’s very refreshing! Today’s card was pretty quick and easy to make and turned out to be quite striking. Take a look:
This card measures 4 x 5.5″ and is of the most basic construction – 2 layers of paper and a raised sentiment. The cool thing is, I made that lovely blue paper in the background! I started by stamping the large lace doily onto white paper and embossing it in black. Then, I used my Shaded Lilac, Salty Ocean, and Peacock Feathers Distress Inks with my blending tool to create a nice gradient. I spritzed it with water, heat set it, then stamped the two smaller doilies with StazOn Stone Gray. The sentiment is raised on a Spellbinders tag die cut that I heat embossed twice with silver powder. The heat embossing gives a bit more dimension than just die cutting silver paper.
And, of course, I had to make the inside match! I kept it simple with a couple stamps and small sentiment:
That’s it for today, folks! Thanks for stopping by, have a good one!
