Here is my first 'how to make it' card recipe for this blog! This is for the water colored Thank You card
Pool party Base & Card stock
Island Indigo piece measuring about two inches by four inches
Island Indigo spot print from Festival of prints measuring base of card in height about three inches wide
Water color paper
Stampin write markers or water color pastels, in Subtles
The heart folder
Daffodil delight ribbon
Begin with the square of water color paper and stamp your Sentiment with Versamark. I used 'Thank You' from Easy events. I colored the flowers with Stampin' Write markers in pastels. For the stems and Thankyou sentiment, I used Wild Wasabi pen.
Emboss the Pool Side base with Versamark of the flower part of the Easy Event stamp set. Don't ink the 'thank you' part. I've done 4 or 5 repetitions, both look good.
Adhere the dotted paper with Snail. Measure the Daffodil Delight ribbon, knot it and adhere it to the back of the card at the bottom with snail. Pull the ribbon back from the piece. Now run your Island Indigo square through the Big Shot! with the heart template running through the middle of the square. Adhere your water colored image to the Indigo Island square (now embossed).
Finish adhering the ribbon over your sandwich of paper, be sure you adhere everything down well. You can add an optional daffodil delight bow!
Tada! My quick and easy stepped up card.
