I’m gearing up for a busy holiday season full of cardmaking! I’ve been brainstorming ideas for my upcoming 2017 Holiday Card Series, but put a pause on that today to create the card below. This week at work we will be celebrating Halloween and the birthdays of 2 of my coworkers (one of whom was actually born on Halloween!) I’m anticipating fun times and yummy treats ahead!!
I had my cheapie Crayola watercolors laying around my craft area, so I grabbed them and created a quick watercolor background on Canson watercolor paper using only the red, pink, and peach colors. I let the piece air dry, then die cut lots of roses using the Paper Smooches Roses die.
I cut a focal panel from white cardstock using the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die, then adhered the roses using Ranger Multi Medium Matte. I flipped the panel over, trimmed off the parts of the roses that were hanging over the panel edge, then attached this panel onto a card base made from Bazzill Card Shoppe Cotton Candy cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment from Paper Smooches Party Posse using Versamark ink onto a strip of Bazzill Smoothies Raspberry Splash cardstock, then heat set it with white embossing powder. I adhered the sentiment strip to the focal panel with Glossy Accents because I knew it was a strong adhesive and would stick well to both the focal panel as well as the die cut roses.
Thanks for stopping by!
