Hello, fun friends! It’s that time of year when we begin to really embrace gratitude and think of our loved ones and all were grateful for. So, we love it when we can create projects that really evoke that warmth and all we love during the season. So, what do have for you? We have a card that is exquisitely beautiful but also incredibly fun to make. Send it as a token of your love or use it as an invite to your Thanksgiving feast. Whatever it’s purpose, it’s sure to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Let’s take a look!
Isn’t it just beautiful? It has depth, it’s got several tactile elements and best of all – the sentiment is meaningful and versatile, too. It’s hard to pick a favorite part – the canvas piece is special and the layered colors of cardstock are beautiful! And what about that colorful embossed background?! Speaking of that background, let’s talk about how you can recreate that, shall we?
Don’t all of those little details make you swoon? Let’s not get distracted, let’s talk about creating that background! Liquid Color is the star here and you will dot Candy Apple, Fresh Forest, Cool Pool, and Pretty Amethyst onto your Journey Gel Press and blend well with Brayer. After that you’ll roll that same Brayer over the Changing Seasons Embossing Folder to send through the machine. Voila! Instant color and texture on your card. That provides you with a rich base to build upon!
And build we will! We’ll add more stamped images, cardstock, a panel of Canvas Sheets inked to reveal the Buffalo Check Stencil‘s pattern and more! We love how the canvas and twine add even more depth to the texture of this card, don’t you?
If you’re busy creating cards and other projects for the end of the year, you know we want to see! Do you think you’ll try inking up your embossing folders like we did here? We want to see all of your projects, so make sure you share with us on Facebook or tag us on Instagram so we can see!
