There is so much beauty in this folder I didn’t want to cut any of it off, therefore I made a 5.5” square card instead of an A2 size card. One of my favorite card color combinations is pink and gray. I chose to apply ink to the embossing folder using a brayer – first I pressed my Cloudy Night ink cube onto my glass media mat, sprayed it with water, then picked up the wet ink with my brayer. I applied this ink to the raised portion of the embossing folder that was the background – this would then create a white flower against the gray background. White flowers are hard to create but this is one way to make them stand out. To give a bit more pazazz to the stamen, I used a silver pen over them.
It was time to add color with Coral Berry Mixed Media Ink. I again pressed the ink pad to my media mat and spritzed it with water. This time, though, I used a fanned paint brush to pick of the color, tapping it over the card to splatter the pink. I trimmed it down slightly to allow for a pink boarder matching the boarder to the ink color. For the sentiment, I stamped in Coral Berry Ink on a die cut from the Altenew Apothecary Labels Stamp & Die Bundle. To help it stand out I edged the label with the Cloudy Night gray ink. For finishing touches I added some sparkly silver chunky glitter.
This was a delightful card to make and one that could be made in quantity. It would be a great card to make in sets with different colors, reversing colors, or making in rainbow colors. What a nice gift this would be to give a friend, teacher, or another crafty friend. I hope you enjoy this awesome Craft Your Life embossing folder!
