Hi there everyone!
Angela here with today’s post. A good friend of mine is having hip replacement surgery next week so of course I need a card. I thought this would be a great time to try something I’ve not done before. I’ve used one of the Planner Patterns dies to emboss watercolor paper and then used watercolor paint to create an ombre effect to fill in the pattern. Stamps and dies from the Sentiments 2 sets complete my card front. Here’s how it all came together.
- Cut a piece of watercolor paper to 3.75 X 5 inches.
- Cut a piece of black cardstock to 4 X 5.25 inches.
- Cut Soft Finish cardstock to 5.5 X 8.5 and fold in half to create the card.
- Using a piece of low tack tape or a sticky note, center the die onto the watercolour paper and fasten.
- Follow the appropriate sandwich on your particular cutting machine. Remember to place your die cutting side to the paper, and then onto the silicone mat. This way the blade will emboss and not cut the paper.
- Run the sandwich though the machine.
- Once the embossing is done, use your favourite watercolours to paint each shape, starting with the lightest colour.
- As you move from one corner to the other, mix colors to create the ombre pattern. Let it dry.
- Attach the layers and center onto the card base.
- Stamp and cut the sentiment and attach using foam tape.
And you’re done! I hope this gave you some inspiration to create your own embossed cards!
