So many people I know are facing difficult challenges in many different areas of their lives. I wanted to create a card of encouragement. I love this sentiment from My Favorite Things DC Vertical Greetings. I wanted it to take center stage and so I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide Inks: Abandoned Coral, Picked Raspberry, Wilted Violet, and Peacock Feathers onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock. These ink blend beautifully.
I waited for the background to be completely dry before I stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink because I wanted to add Hero Arts Detail Clear Embossing Powder. I heat set it with the Marvy Embossing Tool and then die cut it with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Stackable Rectangle. A piece of Gina K. Designs 120# black cardstock was cut 1/8” larger and the two were adhered together using Sookwang Be Creative Tape.
I rectangle of Darice Sticky Foam was die cut with the same rectangle die and adhered to the back of the focal image. A top folding cardbase was made from Gina K. Designs 120# White Cardstock and the focal image was adhered to the front with Tombo Mono Multi Glue.
A clean and simple card focusing on a great message for all of us to remember.
The second card was made the exact same way, but with different colors of Oxide Inks.
