"Thank You Card"I loved the look of the Moodboard Challenge at Kraft+ so much this month, that I wanted to play along again, this time making a card. Here is the fabulous Moodboard once again:
I used a piece of Kraft cardstock a bit smaller than my card size so that I could edge it with 'Black Soot' Distress Ink. I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment from the 'Four You' stamp set by Stampin' Up! in VersaMark and heat embossed it in black.
I wanted to add a bit more texture to the card front, and so I heated my panel from the underside with my heat gun. Once it was warm, I sprinkled black embossing powder randomly and continued to apply heat from the underside for a few minutes. I then carefully (and from a distance!) applied heat from above my panel to set the embossing powder. Quite a bit of it still 'flew away', but I got an effect I was happy with.
In constructing my card, I used a piece of organza ribbon by Stampin' Up! to put across my panel. I clustered my flowers, using foam squares for the front one. Once I had adhered my panel to the front of my card, I realised the card needed something else. I added three white enamel dots in a triangular shape (with two around the sentiment to draw the eye).
I'm really happy with how this card turned out, and I'm even more thrilled to be crafting again after an annoying hiatus while my mojo went on a little vacation (without taking me!).
Thanks for visiting!
