Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Caly Person to our blog today with this gorgeous and happy card design! Be sure to watch the video for all the details! Enjoy!
I began by stamping and embossing the You Shine images around a white panel to create a frame. I stamped the images with embossing ink and embossed the panel with gold embossing powder. To add color to these embossed images, I used the emboss-resist method. I isolated the images by creating stencils using the coordinating dies for each of the images I stamped. I have a video and hope you’ll watch to see this done!
Using one stencil at a time, I applied ink using small and round detail blending brushes. When I was done, I used residual yellow ink from my brush and filled in the white space around the edges. Once my background was done, I trimmed ¼” off all the sides to get crisp clean edges and to get a nice mat for my card base.
Next, I die-cut the pieces from the Lemon Zest dies and ink-blended them using the same inks I used for my background.
Cardstock used: Banana, Cotton Candy, Green Apple, Neenah Desert Storm
I attached my die-cut lemon over my lemon frame/background using 3D Foam Square from Simon Says Stamp. These are new and come in two different heights and colors and are so handy! To finish, I attached a few sequins from the Sunflower Fields Mix.
I hope you enjoyed this card! Thanks so much for spending some time with me today! ~Caly
