For this week’s Global Design Project theme challenge I created a lovely card with the Gorgeous Leaves Bundle in Blushing Bride and Early Espresso with the Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum.
Start with a Blushing Bride cs card base. Cut both Early Espresso cs panels and a Very Vanilla cs panel. Dry emboss both Early Espresso cs panels with the Tasteful Textiles 3D embossing folder. Stamp the bottom half of the Very Vanilla cs panel with the large splatter image from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in 1st & 2nd generation (stamped off) Early Espresso ink. Use a clear block to add a few drops of Blushing Bride ink refill and then mix in water using a Water Painter. Pick up the color with the Water Painter brush end and then use the cap to flick color onto the Very Vanilla cs panel. Glue the dry Very Vanilla cs panel to the embossed Early Espresso cs panel and then to the card base. Use glue to add the second embossed Early Espresso cs panel across the card front slightly above the middle hiding the stamping transition on the Very Vanilla cs panel.
Die cut Polished Pink Shimmer Vellum, Early Espresso cs, and Blushing Bride cs leaves with the Intricate Leaves dies. Use glue and glue dots to add the leaves down the right side of the card front from the embossed Early Espresso cs panel.
Stamp the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Seashells stamp set in Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla cs. Punch out the sentiment with the Everyday Label punch. Shorten the label with paper snips by cutting off the sides at the 1st notch. Gently drag the label over the Early Espresso ink pad to add color to the edges. Use Stampin’ Dimensionals to add the sentiment label to the card front overlapping the leaves, embossed Early Espresso cs panel, and Very Vanilla cs panel. Add Champagne rhinestones to the sentiment label and card front for sparkle. Tie a small bow with Early Espresso Faux Suede ribbon and use glue dots to add it the top right side of the sentiment label.
Don’t forget to add a Very Vanilla cs inside panel. I stamped the sentiment from the Friends Are Like Friendship stamp set, added a strip of Embossed Early Espresso cs, and die cut leaves to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
I hope you enjoyed my #GDP311 Pink Shimmer Gorgeous Leaves card. You can order the Gorgeous Leaves bundle, 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum, Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder, and Everyday Label punch in my Online Store.
