Hi friends! Welcome to the latest edition of Doodling with Debby! This month Debby Hughes has made a gorgeous thank you card using the stencil embossing technique. Be sure to watch the video and enjoy!
Hi this is Debby and for my Doodling With Debby feature this month I have a video below using the lovely Marilyn stencil to create and embossed background, which I then emphasized with Nuvo Embellishment Mousses.
I started this card by ink blending Rosie Cheeks, Melon and Merlot inks in to a panel of Arches Cold Pressed watercolor card. I then sandwiched the ink-blended panel between an embossing mat and the Marilyn stencil. The pressure of running this sandwich through a die cutting machine embosses the stencil pattern into the watercolor card.
I used my finger to rub Nuvo Embellishment Mousses in Fresh Copper, Coral Calypso and Mother Of Pearl over the raised areas of the embossing to emphasize the design. To give more sparkle I splattered the panel with a solution of Perfect Pearls and then when dry die cut with a Wonky Rectangle. I added the die cut panel to an Ivory card base.
With the background now complete it was time to concentrate on the rest of the card. For the sentiment I added a piece of Be Creative Tape Sheet to a scrap of Ivory card and covered it with Nuvo Sunkissed Copper Gilding Flakes then die cut the Script Thanks die.
I paired the coppery thanks die cut with a coordinating sentiment from the Thoughtful Messages set which I white heat embossed on Slate card and trimmed to a skinny banner.
I die cut two sprigs of vellum leaves using my favorite Clustered Leaves die and then adhered all the elements to the embossed panel. As a final touch I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Copper Penny, Bubblegum Blush and Ivory Seashell.
