If you have been following me, it seems that lately I have a special place in my heart for blue! I thought I should change things up a bit, so I decided for a green pallet for this card.
Starting with a piece of 110lb Neenah Solar White Cardstock, I prepped my panel with an antistatic tool and inked up the Figure 8 Bold Background with Versamark ink. The entire surface was covered in white embossing powder and heat set. Using Evergreen Bough Distress Oxide ink, I ink blended on the top of the pattern ensuring I inked heaviest at the top of the panel and allowed it to fade to white at the bottom.
On a scrap piece of white cardstock, I ink blended and then die cut my Smile sentiment using the die from the Smile Stamp & Die Cut set – I cut an additional 3 sentiments out of white card stock so they all could be stacked for dimension. The sentiment strip is a white peice of cardstock stamped in Evergreen Bough Oxide ink. From a piece of vellum, I die cut a heart from the Nesting Heart Inifinity die set. I cut the stamped and inked panel down to 5.5×4 and adhered it to a top folding notecard. The die cut sentiment was added to the top of the vellum heart and added to the upper portion of the card and I then used glossy accents over the sentiment for added dimension and shine. For the smaller sentiment strip, I used foam tape to add it under the larger sentiment. To finish the card off, I added some sequins for sparkle and shine.
Okay! That is it. I hope this card inspires you to enter our challenge this month – I look forward to seeing all of your beautiful entries!
