Red & Yellow Happy Card
By Gail Booth
Designer Tip: If the wiping removes too much color, add more and repeat.
- Place 4 1/4"x5 " white cardstock in the embossing folder and follow your die-cutting machine manufacturer's instructions to emboss the piece. Color over the front of the embossed piece heavily with lemon gelatos, then color over the outer frame with mango. Swipe over the piece gently with a baby wipe, blending the colors. Use Cherry Red over the raised "Happy" embossed area, then wipe gently again. Add more color if needed.
- Card front: Glue the piece centered on 6 "x5" red ripple paper and wrap red w/white dots ribbon across the corners, tying a bow on the upper left, as shown. Add "Birthday" and Jewel Dazzles, as shown. Place a blank card with the fold on top and glue your piece onto the card front.
- Card inside: Color 4 "x1 " white cardstock heavily with lemon gelatos, then color over some areas with mango. Use Cherry Red on the edges and swipe with a baby wipe. Mat on red ripple paper with a " border, glue centered on your card and place "Make a Wish" and Jewel Dazzles, as shown.
