My youngest sister is having a birthday next week, and I just learned a new technique, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to try it out this morning!!!
I needed a textured impression embossing folder (TIEF) for this technique, and my sister lives in Mammoth Lakes in the beautiful mountains. Therefore, I picked the Woodland TIEF with its beautiful aspen trees.
I’m not going to go into too much detail on this technique, because I’m saving it for my next Stamp Club. Sorry, I know that’s a teaser, but I have to keep a few things a secret for my classes. But, I have to say that I absolutely LOVE the way this turned out!!! And, it was super easy!
Both my mom and sister live in Mammoth, and they have had one heck of a winter! Last I heard, the snow pack was at 180% of normal. They have been shoveling out snow like crazy all winter. They are literally trucking it out of town, because the snow banks are so high there’s no place to put it all! My mom sent me a picture of her garage, and the snow bank was as high as the top of the garage!
So with all that in mind, I thought a card with nice Springy colors might make my sister happy and help her think of warmer days to come and a break from all the shoveling. I picked a lot of colors from the Subtles Collection, including Pear Pizzazz, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride and Soft Sky. Then, to make my sunrise a little more vibrant, I threw in some Flirty Flamingo.
The team of demonstrators that I’m part of is having a challenge this week to create one layer cards with lots of embellishments. While I did add a mat of Flirty Flamingo, this is pretty much a one layer card. The background was so pretty, I didn’t want to cover it up, so I wrapped some vellum paper around the main layer for my greeting. And of course, I had to throw in the heart to let my sister know I love her:)
