Hi my crafty friends! Before I get into the card, I wanted to let you know that I will be taking a month long break from crafting, from my blog and social media posts. I may have one post during the month of June but that’s already been pre-scheduled. I will be travelling to Spain to visit family and friends.
Anyway, back to my card. My good friend is celebrating her birthday in September and she is a chef. This month’s Hero Arts add-ons are just perfect for a birthday card for her. It may be a little early to make one but now is good a time as any to make one since the Hero Arts theme this month is all about kitchens!
First I heat embossed the background with white detail embossing powder using the 4.25″ X 5.5″ Kitchen Shelf cling stamp. Then I swiped ink onto the embossed panel using mini reactive ink cubes, starting at the top with Berry Smoothie, followed by Creamsicle, then Lemon Drop, green Apple then Splash.
I sprayed the panel generously with water, dabbed off the excess inks pooling at the sides, then set it aside to dry.
While waiting for the panel to dry, I used the Kitchen Tools fancy die and die-cut all the elements in both white and black cardstock, adhering the black underneath the white, off-setting it a little to create a shadow.
Then I trimmed down the background panel, matted it with a black cardstock panel and adhered it onto a side-folding card base.
I arranged and adhered the kitchen elements onto the card front, then added a white heat embossed on black sentiment ” Have a Delicious Day” onto the middle of the card.
This was so easy to put together! Nothing beats a rainbow card!
See you all in July!
