Cardmaking, Heat Embossing, Ink Blending, Thank You

Thank You Berry Much

Hello! Hello! I’m back again to share another tutorial using new goodies from Catherine Pooler Designs. If you missed the mini card set I created for this release, you can check it out HERE. Otherwise, let me show you how I created this one…

Step 1: Getting the Pieces Together

I started with a top folding A2 card base (4.25″x5.5″), a mat layer trimmed to 3.75″x5″, and an embossed die cut left over from the last project which was ink blended in shades of pink.

To compliment the colors, I took several 1/4″ white cardstock strips and swiped ink pads in shades of peach, pink, and purple across each.

Step 2: Trimming

I added adhesive diagonally across the center of my card panel and adhered several of the inked stripes. Once they were secured, the ends were trimmed off.

Step 3: Add a Sentiment

I stamped a sentiment from the Strawberries & Jam set with embossing ink onto a die cut label and set it in white embossing powder.

Step 4: Thread & Twine

I wrapped a bit of white twine around the lid of the jar securing it on the back with washi tape. I also added adhesive a nest of gradient colored thread behind the die cut jar.

Step 5: Splatter

The card panel was secured to the card base with foam tape, and white pigment and iridescent ink was splattered across the stripes

Step 6: Final Touches

Finally, the jar was secured to the card front with foam tape, and a twine bow and sequins were adhered with glue.

There you have it! What do you think? I hope you liked it and will come back soon to see the next project I created for this release.

You can also see more projects in my Gallery, on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube as well. Until next time… stay crafty!
