In the Northeast, the weather has been freezing! I like to create fall and summer cards when I’m cold. It makes me feel like I’m spreading sunshine when I send them out!
This card is a great example of simplicity paired with layers to create a card that looks rich and textured.
The Colorful Seasons Stamp Set has many stamps that can be used to create cards like this.
I started with a piece of Watercolor Paper to create the background. I “smushed” Pumpkin Pie Ink and Daffodil Delight Ink onto a Craft Sheet, spritzed both the inks and the paper with water and then swiped up the color with the paper. Before I dried it, I splashed some water onto it with my fingers to create the watermarks and then dried all of it with a Heat Tool.
“Just Breathe” was stamped onto the background using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
A Multi-purpose Adhesive Sheet was attached to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock. The Adirondack Chair was die cut from that piece using the Seasonal Layers coordinated Thinlits Dies.
The Watercolor Paper was adhered to a piece of Basic Black Cardstock which was then adhered to Whisper White Cardstock.
A 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Basic Black Cardstock was passed through the Big Shot in the Petal Burst Embossing Folder. It was then adhered to a 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock. This was attached to a card base of Basic Black Cardstock 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5-1/2″.
The background piece was attached to the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The card was finished off by attaching a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White Cardstock to the inside of the card base.
You can easily change the “feel” of the card by using different ink colors. Try blues for a beachy look!
