Thinking of You
The inspiration from this card came from a mash-up of two sources: the card Kristina Werner made with Ferro and some heat embossing on vellum that Nichol Magouirk did in a recent video. But for my card, I didn't use Ferro this time. Instead, I used two products that have been sitting in my stash for a couple of weeks from some recent sale shopping I've done: Claudine Hellmuth Studio Multi-Medium Matte and some Distress Stickles dry glitter. I used the Heidi Swapp dotted stencil, brushed on a layer of medium, lifted my stencil, cleaned it and sprinkled on the glitter. Once it dried, I trimmed the piece to fit my card base with a small mat. Then I stamped the tag from Lawn Fawn's Winter Gifts set with Versamark and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I added the sentiment from Inkadinkado's Expressions and Frames set following the same method. To finish it off, I decided on a red poppy when scrolling through my cut files in my Cameo library. I loved this one and I think it was just the right finishing piece (with a little Wink of Stella in the center of course).
