I have a new favorite stamp set–Artistically Inked! It can also be purchased in a bundle with the Artistic Dies. For this card I used the new Soft Pastel Assortment to add color to the background.
- Paper Cuts–
- Mossy Meadow Card Stock: 8-1/2 X 5-1/2 scored at 4-1/4
- Granny Apple Green Card Stock: 4 X 5-1/4
- Basic White Card Stock: 4 X 5-1/4 (liner) and 5-1/8 X 3-7/8 (card front)
- Gold Foil: 5-1/4 X 2-1/2
I cut the pieces per the list above.
I cut out the branch in the Artistic Dies from the Gold Foil. I used the negative of the branch as a stencil. I used a pencil to trace the outline of the branch very lightly on the Basic White Card front.
I used the Mossy Meadow and Granny Apple Green Soft Pastels inside the outline.
I used my finger to blend the colors together. I added color where needed and used the foil branch to gauge how it looked.
For the final assembly, I stamped the sentiment on the card front using Memento Black Ink. I adhered the foil branch to the card front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. Then I adhered the card front to the Granny Apple Green mat and then adhered the entire assembly to the Mossy Meadow card base. I added Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the card front. Lastly, I adhered the Basic White liner to the inside of the card. Don’t forget to decorate the envelope!
