Hey y’all! Have I mentioned how much I love fall? Yeah, I think I did a couple hundred times in my last post! I’m bringing another fall thank you card today – this time, a slimline card with an emboss resist background.
Distress Oxide Inks by Tim Holtz & Range: Vintage Photo,Crackling Campfire.Peeled Paint, Fossilized Amber
1. A white cardbase that measures 9 ¼” x 7 ½”, scored and folded at 3 ¾” along the 7 ½” side....Using the leaves on the stamp set, randomly stamp the leaf shapes all over the white card mat that was cut to 8 ¾” x 3 ¼” using the Versamark ....Cover stamped area with clear embossing powder and melt with a heat tool. (In retrospect, I could have just used the white embossing powder since my paper was white.)
2. Ink blend, starting with Crackling Campfire then Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, and Vintage Photo. Allow this to dry. Take a clean paper towel and rub the excess ink from the embossed areas. The ink will remain on the cardstock but the ink on the embossed areas will be removed.
3. Take a scrap of the chocolate brown cardstock and stamp “Thank You” from Much Obliged stamp set with the Versamark ink pad and cover with white embossing powder. Melt with your heat tool. Bubble cut around the sentiment.
4. Fussy cut various leaves from the Mintay Floral Book 3 Ink the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink. Arrange the leaves you cut out around your sentiment and glue to the center of your ink blended card mat using Art Glitter Glue
5. Assemble your card by gluing the ink blended background to the chocolate card mat that was cut 9” x 3 ½’. Then glue both of those to the front of the white card base that was cut to 9 ¼” x 7 ½” and scored and folded at 3 ¾” along the 7 ½” side.
6. On the inside bottom right corner of the card, stamp “from the bottom of my heart” from the Much Obliged stamp set using the Versafine Clair in Pinecone.
