When skies are grey and gloomy, I like to see shades of pastels for they cheer me up. This is what I had in mind for this card.
The 3 elements – sunglasses, sun and umbrella having been stamped with a VersaCraft multi-pastel ink palette were heat embossed thrice until they develop a glossy texture (that’s hard to capture on photos). I sneaked in some grey via a stripy pattern paper behind the window panel to set the grey skyline.
- Align 3 dies onto a card panel then send it through the die cutting machine.
- Die cut with the three dies on white cardstock. Dab with Versacraft ink, and heat set with clear embossing powder three times.
- Adhere a piece of acetate behind card panel.
- Create a pond around the panel and within each die cut section, with foam tape.
- Fill in sequins and beads.
- Cover up with a sheet of pattern paper.
- On the front panel, stick down the heat embossed die cuts next to the windows.
- Mount panel onto card base.
