Hello, being a crafty who only ever creates cards with the recipient in mind, card designs can either come super easy or depending on the person, can never feel perfect enough. For this card I wanted to celebrate my friend who just accomplished her fund raising goals. I had jewel tones in mind and The One triangle at a time set from Krumspring Stamps was perfect.
I started out by stamping and heat embossing the One triangle at a time stamp onto watercolor card stock. I had envisioned a purple to gray ombre colour scheme. I used my Gansai Tambi’s to watercolor. I did two layers and allowed them to both dry completely before moving on. As my panel had warped a tad, I placed it under some heavy books for the night to straighten out.
Next up I choose a dark gray panel that was just a little larger than my stamped panel. I thought this would off set the light gray in the embossed piece. I had initially thought to use the large “congratulations” from The necessary one set, but I felt I needed the sentiment to be popped up to add dimension to a very flat card thus far.
So I changed my sentiment to the smaller “congratulations” in The Necessary One set and stamped it out on lighter gray cardstock. I was happy with the simplicity of the sentiment strip compared to the fussy background. I cut it the embossed panel and adhered it to the dark cardstock.
I finished up the piece with several sequins and clear dots and of course stamped my envelope to match.
