Fabulous Day Card by Deanna M

I received some new goodies from Kim the other day and OF course I had to play a little this weekend. This is what I made.

I started with some green card stock cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" portrait card base. I add a yellow mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" then I added another green mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I then cut another piece of yellow card stock at 3 1/2" X 3 1/2 and ran it through my eBosser and embossed it with my new Anna Griffin Matelassé embossing folder. (I love this one, and Kim can and will order if for you, just ask her. You can contact Kim through the store site here.)

I adhered all my layers together with my ATG gun. After I adhere the embossed yellow mat, I added a piece of Washi Tape to the base as a border. (OK, I admit, this is my free gift from Kim at the end of the club, but she can likely order this too.)

Next I stamped a small piece of card stock cut to 2" X 2" with my flower image with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored my flower image with some chalk. I then went back and using a blue water colored pencil to add a bit of shading. I blended everything together with my Dove blending pen. I matted my image on another piece of green card stock cut to 2 1/4" 2 1/4" and adhered it to my card front with some Kool Tak clear foam squares.

Finally I added my sentiment using some VersaMark embossing ink and the new Saraha WOW! Embossing Powder I just received from Kim. The new Desert Sand Limited Edition set. LOVE IT!!! So sparkly.  Okay, so now confession time, I really had bad luck and did not enjoy using embossing powders on my projects until Kim started selling the WOW! embossing powders. The others I tried to use just didn't melt and give me the results I expected. The WOW! embossing powders melt beautifully. If you haven't tried them yet, you should, you won't regret it.

I would love to know what you think of my project and this embossing folder. I think it is beautiful and am so excited that I now own it.
