Hope everyone is staying dry. I tell you I have never seen rain like we got in Frederick MD last night. Many, many streets were flooded and even boat rescues in the middle of neighborhoods. Crazy! Anyhow, it was nice to take a break from the madness to work on this pretty card. Who is loving the new floral release?! It is just so much fun to play with these. So for this weeks DT card I decided to take to my Copic markers and some coloring therapy. As always, a list of the products used will be at the bottom along with links. :)
I created a 5.5 x 5.5 card using Neenah Solar White 110lb card stock. I did my Copic coloring using the same Neenah paper to keep it consistent. After I spent some time coloring up the Floral Background image, I cut it out using our new nested Stitched Squares Dies, and then cut out a purple border with another new nesting set Scalloped Squares Dies. I also had some fun with a "new to me" product from ColorSnap called Twinkle Dust. I put a thick layer of liquid glue down and sprinkled the glitter over and allowed it to dry. The pictures aren't showing just how much dimension this gave the card. **P.S. This little sneak peek is one of many projects I created for our upcoming collaboration with ClearSnap.** Stay tuned! I didn't want to take anything away from the pretty image so I heat embossed the sentiment "Kindness" on vellum (The trick to heat embossing on vellum is to make sure your heat tool is good and warmed up beforehand. Also, helps to heat it on a hard surface to prevent warping. I used a hard board and it worked great.) I wanted to add the "spread" sentiment, so I pulled out an oldie but goodie Pink and Main die set called Stitched Greetings, and cut that tab out in white. Then I heat embossed using the same method as before. I like the overall soft look of the vellum saying.
