Welcome back ladies! Just a quick post today to share a couple of cards I made for Lily Pad cards with a photo tutorial and a video.
The first one I am sharing today is this ornament card I made for the sketch challenge here.
and here is a closer look
And if you want to see how I did this card here are some photos I took while I was making it
First I white embossed the three ornaments on white paper.
Clear embossing powder works fine also, but I like better the white one cause it is more vibrant.
and then I used distress inks to color the ornaments. I used a couple of shades on each one for a more natural effect:
I white embossed the sentiment
and then I stamped the sentiment on a post-it note. I cut around the sentiment close to the letters and so I created a mask.
I sticked the mask on top of the embossed sentiment and then I stamped my background image with versamark on top. This way the sentiment remains clear, without all those little snowflakes on top of it.
I then embossed the background and used my distress inks (yes, I am addicted to them)
Before I added the sentiments I spayed them with some “shimmer spritz” by Tsukineko. It really is amazing how they shine after that! But it is so difficult to take a proper photo of it.
For each ornament I chose a different floss color (yes! I got tons of these floss colors as long as the sew easy kit… which is amazing. You’ll see me using it soon)
If you have any questions please leave me a comment, and I’ll get back to you!
And last but not least here is the card from today’s how-to video. You can click HERE to watch the video.
