Hi there! Thanks for stopping in today. I’m sharing a really fun card using a technique I’d never tried before with one of my embossing folders. I hope you enjoy it! Let’s go!
I started by stamping the image from Trinity Stamps It’s Okay, colored it with copic markers and used the coordinating dies to cut it out. Then I took a kraft panel and my wood-grain embossing folder. I blotted brown ink on one side of the folder and ran it through my die cut machine to emboss it. It inked up the raised portion of the embossing and left this really cool look! I just love how it turned out! Don’t you?
I used my blending buddy brush and a light blue ink to give a little color to the edge of a white card base and then pulled out the cloud image from Hang On. I stamped and die cut a handful of those and glued them in place, trimming the excess off the edge. Then I trimmed the embossed panel to 3.5×5.5 inches and popped it up with foam tape. I wanted this to look like a tree in the park or maybe a telephone pole on the street with a message for anyone passing by.
For finishing touches I added a little glossy accents to the pushpin and the word “not” and some Stickles to the dashes for a little glimmer.
This card fits perfectly with the Trinity Stamps Crafty Troop Challenge. Have you checked it out this month yet? Be sure to grab your goodies and play along too! There’s always a gift certificate to the Trinity shop up for grabs!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
