Good morning everyone – Jennifer here from Caffeinated Papercuts with a card that is fitting for every day of the year:
Keeping our February challenge of Embossing in mind, I broke out the embossing paste and one of my stencils to create the background of this card. I concentrated it to the bottom right of the cardstock to help highlight the bits & bobs I knew I was adding. While I let it dry, I stamped three of the elements from the Not Perfect stamp set with my Hero Arts shadow inks and fussy cut them out. When the paste was dry, I trimmed it down to 4″x5.25″, glued the two bigger circles right on top and used some foam tape on the third. A piece of fun foam was trimmed down to 3.75″x5″ and used to pop the decorated piece onto a standard A2, top-folding card base.
For the sentiment, I grabbed some Mocha layering paper, white embossing powder, and my Celebrate Everyday stamp set. Some quick embossing and trimming of the edges into a banner, then onto the card it went with foam tape. A few clear sequins to add a bit of sparkle and this card was done!
I love the fun, slightly messy feel and that it would work for any occasion. Besides, the colors remind me that spring really is coming!
