Today’s beautiful card is also taken almost directly from the 2013 Spring & Summer Idea Book. This was a very popular card and has been requested again for another workshop. It features embossing and our new alcohol markers. I love this combination! The embossing makes a beautiful raised glossy “bumper” that’s easy to color in! It’s much easier to color within the lines and it is color fast. The alcohol markers will not cause the black ink to bleed. For the embossing, I used our black pigment ink cube and clear embossing powder! I love embossing with the pigment inks because you get 10 colors per set and it only takes 1 type of embossing powder: Clear Detail!
I must apologize for the awful pictures. I was trying a different photography setup and it didn’t work. The colors of this card are much more vivid in real life!
I changed the card from what was shown in the Idea Book by substituting this amazing bow from the Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the For Always textiles that they used. It’s a great pop of color and it’s flat which means it will mail nicely. It keep the flow from squishing flat, I added 3D foam tape inside the loops to give it stability.
