Online Card Class Summer Card Camp2
Week Three, Day Two
Today we were shown some ways to dress up die cuts by embossing with various colors. Although my library of dies is quite limited, I am fortunate to have a friend who sent me a Get Well gift of several intricate die cuts. This is where I went to find the main image on my card. Although it was cut in green paper, I covered it with VersaMark, then coated with Stampendous Lilac Embossing Powder and heat embossed. I did that twice, rather than three or four times as shown in Jennifer McGuire's class video because the die cut was only one layer and a bit flimsy with all the handling.
To keep with the color palette, I added light blue dots with Baby Blue Liquid pearls and layered onto dark purple paper. The side panel has a dry embossed panel. To get a shade of brown in there, I added a tan cord around the card and tied with a bow. The sentiment is also heat embossed in the Stampendous Lilac Embossing Powder.
This is probably one of my favorites from the class. I felt no frustration and enjoyed the changes I was making in the elements used. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by! See you again soon.
