This was a fun card to make! It was made as a retirement card for a friend’s mother. I think the sentiment Enjoy Today serves as a great reminder for what is to come. I took a little break from all the new product to enjoy my Campology Stamp set that I have not used nearly enough! I paired it with Snow Front to create the mountain in the trees scene that I was going for.
With the handy dandy blending brushes and many colors I began layering ink on a piece of Whisper White (Now retired). I used a masking circle to create then sun in the mountains. I layered the trees and mountains with Garden Green and Soft Suede ink. It took awhile to get the colors just where I wanted them. Then I added Texture to the water using the corner of the Birch background stamp. I frayed the edges of this layer and then went back with the blending brush and added color to the edges, I made sure to match the colors in that portion of the scene.
When I was done I was happy ish. It wasn’t exactly the shades I wanted (it was a bit dark) but it did the job. So I added a layer of Very Vanilla under my stamped images and added that to a Cajun Craze card base.
In the morning I headed to the craft table to add Designer Series Paper to the envelope flap and discovered something wonderful. The card had dried lighter and I was SUPER excited about the final outcome.
Below you will find my products used list. This is a Basic A2 card with simple layers so there will be no cut list. But if you have questions PLEASE let me know!Product List
