Hi everyone! This week I made a card that used some scraps I had lying around. I often like to try new techniques on a small scale before I commit to a full layout or card. For this card I used the following supplies:
- Birthday sentiments – Hero Arts
- Hero Arts neon ink – green and purple
- purple twine
- crop a dile
- dots embossing folder
- stamp mat
- big shot (not show)
- water colours (not shown as it was a scrap that I used).
- foam squares
For this card I was inspired by this awesome video on the Hero Arts site where Julie Ebersole does a letterpress technique with embossing folders. So much fun, I’m definitely doing this again.
Here’s the Completed card:
I used a white card base and a white panel for the letterpress technique. First I stamped the sentiment in the neon purple and then inked the raised side of the embossing folder and ran it through the big shot – awesome effect. Then I layered with a pink scrap and the water colour panel and then created a banner and punched a heart from it. Then I used my crop a dile to create the notches and tied the purple twine around – done!
