Our wonderful color of the month is ‘Mango’. That rich and warm yellow color took my mind right in the middle of sunny summer days, and that feeling inspired me to create a summer-themed flower card. Matter of fact—I made two card fronts on one go, but instead of creating two identical greeting cards I trimmed the other one into an ATC card. Love them both!
Time: 45 minutes
Stamp image on white paper with VersaMark. Heat emboss with Imagine’s Embossing Powder in Black.
Apply the two shades of yellow inks in Memento on the background using a brayer. Start with the lighter color and add the darker yellow on top. Do not cover the entire background but ink the center of the card only.
Using the Craft Mat as a palette, press ink on the craft mat. Pick up colors with a water brush, and paint the image.
Cut stamped card front to size and mat on a white card base. Die-cut the “hello” sentiment twice, glue together with On Point Glue and attach to the card front.
Above is ATC version of this card in a vertical format and without the “hello” sentiment.

- Embossing Powder – Black
