Are you ready for something sorta vintage? It’s got hearts, roses and ribbon…what’s not to love?
Gosh, You’re Adorable!
The background for this card uses the emboss resist technique. After it was stamped with the VersaMark Ink Pad, it was heat embossed in white. A *Colorbox Chalk Ink Pad (Rose Coral), and some Crumb Cake ink were rubbed over the entire surface with a sponge dauber ( I started with the CC and added some Rose Coral here and there, then went back and touched up with more CC if needed). After a few minutes of dry time, use a baby wipe to lightly go over the surface to help expose the white embossing.
Two more great embellishments used on this card are the ribbon and a handmade rose! The vanilla ribbon was spritzed with some water, scrunched up and allowed to dry before using it (that’s what gives it the wrinkled appearance). The rose is made from some Simply Pressed Clay and a mold. To give the rose a little color, take the same daubers used for the background and lightly go over the clay, (don’t add anymore color), just press down (lightly at first) with the dauber, there’s enough ink left on there from the background and you don’t want to over do it. These little clay embellishments are super light weight and adhere easily with just a glue dot, not to mention you can make them any color you want!
I hope you enjoy today’s project as much as I enjoyed making it!
