Wanna see the very first card I made of the convention display boards this year? And the very first one I made with the new Seasonally Scattered? Well, here you go!
This card is pretty different from my usual style… in fact, I actually made it and then set it aside for a while to see if I liked it or not. In the end, I decided I did like it and had fun with the mixture of patterns and textures!
Tips for making this card:
- The sentiments from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set are pretty big and the letters are part of the un-stamped image (meaning, when you ink up your stamp, where you see the letter “L” it does not get any ink on it). But that gives you some fun other options, like heat embossing your image!
- Once you emboss your image, sponge over the top of the embossed image for a varied saturation of color.
- Tear off the edge of your embossed and sponged cardstock layer to give you a rough white edge since you’ll be ripping off the sponged surface and exposing inside of the white cardstock!
- Color a pearl with your Cherry Cobbler blendabilities and then place it in the center of a Vintage button for a matching pop of color.
Oh, and I tucked my chevron ribbon under my white cardstock layer, to make sure the torn edge showed up and to mute some of the boldness of the chevron.
The nice thing about a card like this is that the big bold patterns and images give you a lot to look at when you look at the card but its actually super easy to put together.
