Today’s card is one that I created as my Thank You cards for my Party Puffins Class To Go, and part of the Creating Kindness Design Team Blog Hop
This month our theme is Designers Choice and our guest designer is Lisa Flemming, she can be found at www.peanutsandpepperspapercrafting.com
I love these adorable Puffins so much, they are so fun and easy to create with, do you own this fun stamp set?
After watercolouring some Coastal Cabana Ink on the Fluid 100 cardstock, I decided it needed a bit “more”, so I pulled out my Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder and embossed the layer, I loved how it turned out, really adding so much more to the visual appearance of the watercolour. I decided my Polished Pink layer needed the same treatment, and it really pulled the card together!
My sentiment is from the Biggest Wish stamp set, it is embossed with white embossing powder on Coastal Cabana cardstock, some silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trim wound behind the sentiment adds that little bit extra to my card
Here are the measurements for my card;
Coastal Cabana cardstock card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″
Coastal Cabana cardstock – 4″ x 5-1/4″, plus a strip to stamp and emboss the sentiment on
Polished Pink cardstock – 3-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ – this piece is embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder on this piece
Fluid 100 Water Color Paper – 3″ x 4-1/4″ – I used my water Painters and Coastal Cabana ink refill on this layer, once dried I used the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder on this layer
Thick Basic White cardstock – a piece to stamp the Puffin on and fussy cut out
Basic White cardstock – 4″ x 5-1/4″ – this is for the inside of the card
