Hello Unity friends! Shemaine here with this week's Inspiration Wednesday post. Today I want to inspire you to create with kraft paper, Distress inks and embossing folders. I love the mini blending inks from Ranger. The colors are amazing and fun to create with. They also blend nicely on kraft paper.
I was inspired by this color palette via Pinterest and I knew exactly how I wanted to use them to create today's project.
For this project, I chose to create with Peacock feathers, Spiced marmalade, and Twisted citron. Blend each color on your card base that's cut at 4 X 5 1/3.
One I have applied all the colors, I like to go back in and blend them again to make the color richer.
Now I am ready to emboss the inked paper with my favorite embossing folder from Anna Griffin. It's called Poppy.
Next I used Versamark to stamp this image on the same kraft cardstock and emboss with gold embossing powder and cut the image out. I repeated the same process but cut out the butterfly to layer over the top of the first one.
Now you are ready to assemble the card. I used twine (found in the $1 bin at Target) to tie a bow and Therm-O-Web 3D foam squares to attach the butterfly to the card base. I stamped my sentiment inside the card since the front looked great just the way it is.
Now before I go, I want to inspire you with a quote I found that spoke to me!
I'm so glad you're part of Unity's community! Keep crafting and have a creative day!
