So, without further ado keep on reading the post. ↓
For the fist card I started by inking it up a Bristol Smooth card panel with:
‒ Blueprint Sketch
‒ Wilted Violet
‒ Mermaid Lagoon
Once, the card panel was inked up I set it aside to dry, as I was going to glitter emboss it.
In the meantime, I glitter heat set it a white card panel for the second card. So, I started by stamping with embossing ink the Watercolor Background Stamp on a white card panel, right after the stamping I covered it with Unicorn Magic Embossing Glitter, and I heat set it. As, you can see in the picture above I missed a few spots, however at this point I could have gone and repeat the previous step to get a full glittery embossing. But, I ended up liking the distress glittery look.
NOTE: working with glitters you must know, that glitters will not stick on your stamping in the first try, so if you want a full coverage you must repeat the stamping at least 2 up to 3 times.
So, back to the card once the card panel was heat set it I trimmed the edges down, and I repeated the same steps for the inked background that I inked it up earlier.
As, for the card sentiments I used Shine On Bundle to stamp, and die-cut both of the sentiments for these cards. For, the white & gold cards I ran through the die-cutting machine the inner layer of the die to die-cut it out of white card stock 3X. Once, the die-cutting was done I stacked them all together, and inked it up the shine word with the same distress oxides colors that I used for the background. For, the second card I ran through the die-cutting machine the die, but this time I also die-cut the shadow layer both out of white card stock, as I was going to stamp the shadowing effect on it. Right after, when the die-cutting was done I stamped the shadow effect on the the shadow layer of the die-cutting with embossing ink, and I gold heat embossing it. Then, I inked it up the shadow layer with the same distress oxide colors as the background, and I soon as I was done I adhered the top layer to it. To complement the Shine die-cutting sentiment, first I decided the placement of the die-cutting, then I gold & white heat embossing the world is your sentiment underneath it on each card as you can see in the picture above. Finally, to finish both card panels off I adhered the Shine die-cutting to each of the card panel.
To finish the cards off I adhered each of the card panel to their A2 top folding white card bases, that I had previously folded, and scored with foam mounting tape. As, a finishing touch I decided to add glossy accent to the Shine top layer for a glossy look.
