07.19.19…..Happy Friday, everyone! The weekend is almost here, and summer is heating up quickly in Northern California! Time for trips to the lake, outdoor barbeques, and…..linen. Linen…huh??? I love to wear cool, linen clothing when then temperatures starting climbing and that, my stampin’ friends, was the inspiration for this card. Subtle shades, neutral colors, linen-like textures, and even Linen Thread were incorporated into this design. Hope you enjoy it!
For this card, I used the Scripty 3D Embossing Folder along with Whisper White Cardstock, and adhered it to a Whisper White Thick Cardstock base. Using a smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock, I used the Birch Background Stamp and my Sahara Sand Classic Stampin’ Pad (“stamped off” twice) to create a very subtle background. I then used the Very Versailles stamp set to add the leaves (Pear Pizzazz “stamped off” once) and the scripted text (Gray Granite “stamped off” once). To add some texture, I then used the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. I then used my Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Marker to add some speckling. (For create the speckling, I used the thick end of the marker and “flicked” it against the marker cap.)
To create the frame, I used two of the Stitched Rectangle Dies, along with a piece of Woven Threads Designer Series Paper. The flowers (from the To a Wild Rose Bundle) were heat-embossed on Vellum Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. After I cut them out (using a die from the To a Wild Rose Bundle), I added a Stampin’ Dimensional in the center of each flower to adhere them to the card.
The sentiment (also from the Very Versailles stamp set) was heat-embossed on Whisper White Cardstock, using my Versamark Pad and Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and popped up with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tucked underneath is a bit of Linen Thread, a thin strip of Whisper White Cardstock (die cut with the one of the Stitched Be Mine Dies to create the scalloped border), and a strip of Subtles Designer Series Paper. For my bit of bling, I sprinkled on a few gold Metallic Pearls and Basic Adhesive-Backed Sequins.
