A good Monday morning to Everyone! I hope your weekend was a good one and you are looking forward to another week. Every day is a blessing. My weekend was wonderful, spent mostly with family and celebrating birthdays.
Today’s card is one I made for my youngest granddaughter who will turn 20 this week and doesn’t want to talk about it. She is a lovely young lady, college student, and I am proud of her.
I started with a Calypso Coral card base and a Cajun Craze mat. The background for my sentiment circle was done with Ranger Oxide Inks in Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Wild Honey, and Candied Apple on a piece of Whisper White card stock. I spritzed it and smooshed it until I had the background I wanted, then let it dry thoroughly and cut it to size.
You could hasten the drying with your heat tool, but I had other projects going so I just set it aside to dry naturally. This was Liquid Glue to the Cajun Craze mat.
After rubbing the painted panel with my Embossing Buddy and using the retired Kinda Eclectic, I stamped the sunburst in Versamark ink.The little dot cluster from Timeless Textures was also stamped in Versamark. I love the Copper Embossing Powder, especially with the shades of orange and yellow. This I heat embossed using my Heat Tool.
Using the Beautiful You stamp set, I stamped the girl in Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White, then colored her with my Stampin’ Blends. The light Pumpkin Pie is her dress, and the dark Pumpkin Pie is her hat. Light Pink Pirouette served as the skin color and Light Crumb Cake for her hair.
Over this I stamped the sentiment, also from Beautiful You, in Versamark and heat set the Copper Embossing powder with my Heat Tool.
I cut the circle using my Stitched Shapes largest circle and Liquid Glued it to a scalloped Cajun Craze circle cut with the Layering Circles die.
I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the layered circles to the card front, over the embossed sunburst, offsetting it so that some of the rays peeked out from behind the circle. I had planned to use copper trim, but it was too much, so left it off.
For the inside, I stamped the flourish from from Timeless Textures in Pumpkin Pie in both upper corners of the Whisper White panel. The swoosh under the sentiment is from Beautiful You, also in Pumpkin Pie.
The sentiment is an old one I have had a while and do not remember where I got it. It is stamped in Calypso Coral. This panel was Liquid Glued to a Cajun Craze mat and into the card base.
This completes the card. On to the envelope, which shall NOT remain naked!
To prevent ‘bleed through’ of the Stampin’ Blends, I inserted a piece of cardboard into the envelope before I colored in the stamped (Smoky Slate) image, using the same colors as on the card.
The flap received a Calypso Coral sunburst from Kinda Eclectic.
I hope you like this card.
