Today I’m sharing this Nature’s Prints best wishes card with you. This was one of the 3 cards we created at this months team meeting featuring the Nature’s Prints bundle.
I shared a fun fold card using this same bundle in this blog post
It’s very subtle, but if you look closely at the debossed areas of the card, you’ll notice they are a bit darker. I meant to film a video showing you how I did this but I ran out of time. I’ll try to explain it as best as I can.
- Take an embossing folder – I used the new fern embossing folder here – and open it. You’ll notice that one side is raised and the other is inset.
- Gently rub your ink pad (I used pear pizzazz) across the raised side of the embossing folder. You can use the same colour ink pad as the cardstock you are using or choose a different colour.
- Carefully place a piece of cardstock on the uninked side and close the folder.
- Run it through your die cutting machine.
- Remove the cardstock.
- Clean your embossing folder. You can easily clean it by just running it under warm water.
I was looking for a more subtle look but if you wanted a more dramatic look, it looks great if you choose a darker ink color than the color of your card stock.
The rest of the card came together pretty quickly. You’ll find the measurements below, if you’d like to recreate it.
- Pear Pizzazz: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ ; 4″ x 5-1/4″
- Basic White: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for inside; 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ for die cutting wreath; 7/8″ x 4″ for greeting and 2″ x 3″ for stamping the flower
- Sweet Sorbet Ombre Glimmer: 1/2″ x 6″
- Sweet Sorbet Ribbon: 8″
- In Color Opal Rounds: x3
We will be working with the Nature’s Prints bundle over in the Treasure Chest for the entire month of June. If you’d like more inspiration using this bundle, be sure to register before June 2nd so you don’t miss out on the weekly emails. You can find all the info here.
