Thinking of you card

Designer Tips: . The jumbo stamps look great going off a card, as a background or as a focal. The large words are perfect centered on the front of the card. . Embossing the greeting on the front with amethyst embossing powder adds a rich finish and texture to the words. . Spraying on the stamp gets messy, so it's best to do it outside and/or wear gloves-Glimmer Mist can stay on your skin for a while.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place the card so the fold is on the left. Place the medallion stamp on the clear block and spray it with Dragonfly Glimmer mist. Stamp on the card several times, spraying the stamp between each stamping. Spray the card lightly with the Glimmer mist. The card will curl from the moisture, so place a paper towel over it and weigh it down with some heavy books until it dries completely.
  2. Stamp "Thinking of you" on the center of the card with Versamark. Sprinkle on amethyst embossing powder and shake off excess. Emboss with a heat embossing tool. Stamp the medallion stamp with Blackberry in the top left and bottom right corner as shown.
  3. For the inside: Stamp a medallion with Blackberry ink in the center. Use the stylus and a blender tip to apply Ocean ink to the center of the medallion, applying it heavier in the center and softer around the edges. Write a greeting above the medallion with a pen.

This is so elegant. It is so purely simple that it is striking! I really enjoy "less is more" when it is done so well. This card also has me curious (I am new to "current" forms of cardmaking) about the Glimmer Mist. One more technique discovered, leading to a more diverse tool box! Thank you , Ann!
