For a little inspiration, our Artist In Residence Tina McDonald has created this fabulous project using Radiant Neon inks!
- Prepare white card base 5-1/8˝ x 3¾” with fold along the top. Use corner rounder to round edges.
- Cut a piece of white cardstock to approximately the same size as card front (above). Emboss using Spellbinders ® M-Bossabilities folder and Grand Calibur™ machine. Die cut using Spellbinders Curved Matting Basics A.
- Using Radiant Neon Electric Pink and Electric Orange, highlight the embossed areas. Begin with darker coloring on bottom left third and then spread color to the outside edges, alternating colours. Adhere to card base using foam tape.
- Stamp sentiment using both colors of ink (Electric Pink on top half, Electric Orange on bottom half) onto white cardstock. Die cut using Standard Circles Large.
- Cut/emboss Medallions One and Blooms Three (flower center and largest base) onto white cardstock.
- Using a Sponge Dauber with Electric Yellow ink, completely cover floral center. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder and heat set.
- Apply Electric Pink to the flower base and Electric Orange to cener portion. Add clear embossing powder. and heat set.
- Adhere the floral center to flower base with a foam square, then the decorative floral center. Mount the completed medallion to center of the card.
- Finish by adding the bloom and then the sentiment.
