This card was super fun to make and came together quite quickly. There is a lot of embossing, so let’s get going!
To start with, I did my embossing on the outside edges of both the pink layer, green layer and cardbase. What I did was take the main image stamp and used the bottom portion (the flowers, eggs and grass) and used it to stamp all along the edges of the panels! I used Versamark Ink and then sprinkled on my Embossing Powders! I used Rosa Embossing Powder on the pink layer and cardbase. Pineapple Embossing Powder was used on the green layer.
To make the doily, I covered the entire white doily with Versamark Ink and sprinkled on Princess Rose Embossing Powder, heat setting of course! 🙂
Once I was done with all those parts, I set those pieces aside and started on my main image. I stamped the image onto white cardstock using Versamark Ink, sprinkled on Black Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. For coloring, I grabbed my Watercolor Pencils, an aquapainter and went to work! I am still an amateur with coloring, but I think I’m improving 🙂
The image was fussy cut out after it was dry (TIP: Use a heat gun to speed up drying time!). I covered the entire image in Versamark Ink, sprinkled on Clear Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It created such a gorgeous shine!
The sentiment was stamped onto some white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I embossed with Black Detail Embossing powder. I actually separated the sentiment in half and did a swash of watercolor on the background too.
Putting It All Together
To start assembly, I used the Large Nuvo Glue Pen to adhere the embossed doily to the pink layer. The pink layer was attached to the green layer using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape.I popped the fussy cut focal image up with some Foam Squares.
I also created a fun “grass” border simply by cutting a 1″ strip of green cardstock randomly and bending them a bit. Fun, right? I realized after that I should have grabbed my Grassy Green Flocking to add to the dimension – next time! The border was also attached using 1/4″ Tear-ific Tape. I tied a bit of bakers twine around the panel for added fun.
The entire panel was adhered to the card base using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape. I used a mini-stapler to attach a bit of frayed bakers twine behind the sentiments and popped them ofn using Foam Squares.
I hope you enjoy this card! Don’t forget to grab your fave SNS products from the shop!
