Smile Card | Sunset Colors

Hello my friends! I hope you are all having a great weekend.

Today I am sharing a flat card using inlay die cutting and at the same time I am going to show you how I used distress inks to have those sunset colors at the background. The idea was to create a card that smells summer although there is no blue in it. And by using those leaves it kind of reminds me of sitting at the beach and enjoying a sunset under a palm tree!

I have used warm distress colors and these awesome dies by Penny Black. In the leaves and the sentiment there is also a touch of glitter that you can see better in the next photo

    I love your card. I want to do an inlaid card – it’s so rich looking!
    One question, did you do a video of the Nautical card? The sneak peek is intriguing but I can’t find the video!

    Hi Vicki, Wow. Another beautiful card. I am just a neophyte cardmaker, and you are so inspiring. Maybe about 10 years from now I’ll make cards as beautiful as yours! In the meantime, keep those tutorials coming!
