Do you know someone who is overdue for a vacation? Perhaps they are not sure whether they deserve a break? Today’s project is a perfect encouragement card for such a person. This card brings a desire for summer vacations and relaxation that makes you want to be inside the scene with the warm colors and the sense of calmness it gives. It allows you to dream of the place of a tropical island or somewhere in Africa. The deep colors of VersaFine Clair ink pads make them ideal for vibrant shades on paper and Imagine’s Sheet Metal pieces. See how I made this card.
Time: 1 hour
Use a jumbo sponge dauber to color the Sheet metal circle with the VersaFine Clair in Summertime. Sprinkle Imagine’s Embossing Powder in Clear and heat set. Repeat the process a couple more times.
Cover a 4 x 6 cardstock by laying and blending VersaFine Clair in Summertime and Golden Meadow inks with a jumbo sponge dauber. Use the VersaFine Clair in Pinecone for the lower part of the card.
Emboss the cardstock with the branches embossing folders only at the bottom of it and enhance with more VersaFine Clair in Pinecone.
Die cut the beach hut and color with the VersaFine Clair in Pinecone and Summertime.
Use the rest of the die cut paper as a stencil and with the help of a sponge dauber make huts on the cardstock.
Press the palm plywood shape on the VersaFine Clair Pinecone and use it to stamp on the cardstock.
Color the plywood shapes and the Icelandic moss with the VersaFine Clair in Pinecone.
Cut small pieces of the Tear It Tape and set the Sheet metal circle.
Glue the plywood shapes with the On Point Glue and use foam tape to keep the beach hut raised from the background. Place the cardstock on the front of a 5 x 7 card.
