Let do some Faux Illusion Embossing for today card. Such a fun technique and it is simple. Also on today card you will see the dragging technique, one of my all time favorite for a quick scenery.
I been on a kick with the Country Road stamp set. Each time I used this set it remind me how peaceful life is in the country. Are you a country or city type of people. I know for me and my family we sure love the country life.
I have the video to show step by step at the bottom or you can find it on my You Tube Channel.
- Pear Pizzazz 8½ x 5½ score at 4¼ card base
- Basic Black 5¼ x 4
- Whisper White 5 x 3¾ front, 5¼ x 4 inside
I love how the look of this card. I sure look like the wind is blowing the grass or wheat.
The greeting I used the Happy Birthday but I think this card would be great for many other occasion like retirment, thinking of you ans such.
Step by Step
- Stamp the wagon wheel using VersaMark emboss with copper embossing powder
- Using balmy blue for the sky, pear pizzazz for the grass and drag the ink pad. All show in the video
- Stamp the tall grass/weed using early espresso
- now this step is very important. Remove the ink on the emboss wheel, only tap tap a rag or paper towel DO NOT wipe side way it will smear on the card if you swipe. See video.
- Finish with the greeting that I stamp using early espresso
For the inside I just stamp the wheat at the bottom left corner. Quick tip when you are stamping a card, stamp the outside of your envelop on the left corner. So easy to just stamp the envelop while you have your stamp and ink out. It is very lively to have a envelop that match your card. Plus when you mail the cards when the recipient get the mail it is a sign of caution this envelop is full of love. You bet it is full of love after all it is a card hand made with love.
