On to the card!
I made this delicious fruit salad of a card using the Sweet Summer stamp and die set from Technique Tuesday and some gorgeous colors of WOW! embossing powders! I started by stamping the fruit images onto Neenah Solar White cardstock, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloring the images in with Copic markers. Then I die cut them with the coordinating dies and set them aside while I worked on the background/sentiment panel.
I used 4 different colors of the WOW embossing powder for the sentiment, assembling various pieces of the sentiment choices to create the whole. For the words “you are a” I used Primary Parma Violet, for the 1st “Sweet” – Soft Mango, for the 2nd “Sweet” – Primary Bluetiful, and for the word “friend”, I used Primary Chartreuse embossing powders.
I found that the Soft Mango embossing powder melted lighter than I liked for matching with the darker colors I had used to color both the watermelon and the strawberry, so for that word, I stamped with a coral colored ink first, then again with Versamark ink and finally, heat embossed with the coral colored powder, so the resulting color is a little darker than it would ordinarily be.
To assemble the card, I die cut the sentiment panel with a stitched rectangle die and popped that up with some foam tape on the back. I cut a piece of green patterned paper for the mat behind the card panel and adhered it directly to the yellow patterned paper covered card base. It shouldn’t surprise you that I tried to add some enamel dots. But there was already enough going on on this card that they felt like too much, so I put them away. Another card. Another day.
