CQC110 So Much Gratitude
I wanted to create a thank you card this evening (you can never have enough thank you cards) so I decided to use the gorgeous colors from this week’s ColourQ CQC110 Challenge. If you have the time, check out the Design Team and other entries- there is such a variety of projects and so much inspiration!
This card is another easy card that utilizes your own Designer Paper created with the Rock-n-Roll technique along with Dry Embossing and Distressing- what could be more fun?
Use the Big Shot™, cut a Top Note from Whisper White cardstock using the Top Note Bigz™ Die. Use the Rock-n-Roll Technique to stamp the leaves with Peach Parfait and Dusty Durango Classic Ink. Stamp the leaf outline images with Soft Suede Classic Ink, sponge with Pool Party Classic Ink and spray with the Color Spritzer Tool and Dusty Durango Stampin’ Write marker. Distress the edges and sponge Soft Suede Classic Ink to antique the edges.
Stamp the sentiment with Soft Suede onto Whisper White cardstock. After stamping the leaf images in Pool Party and Soft Suede (stamping both “off” first), use the Big Shot™ to emboss the Decorative Oval Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Carefully cut around the edge and sponge the edges with Soft Suede.
Spray both the Top Note shape and the sentiment with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol).
Emboss the Pool Party layer with the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and the Dusty Durango cardstock layer with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Distress the Pool Party layer and sponge both layers with Soft Suede.
Layer the entire card, add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon (from my stash) to finish off the card.
