Today I would like to share a card for you that was designed when I was a member of the Splitcoaststampers Dirty Dozen Design Team. It is a quick card to create, featuring the faux burning technique.
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Faux burning is so easy! Simply tear your paper, ripping towards you. Then apply a heavy coating of Early Espresso ink using a Sponge Dauber. To review my video tutorial of this technique, Click Here.
- Stamp-a-ma-jig! The beautiful Elizabeth stamp was inked in Early Espresso and stamped onto Very Vanilla card stock. The Stamp-a-ma-jig was then used to perfectly align the "Thanks so much" sentiment from Three Little Words. If you are new to stamping and need to review how to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig, just Click Here.
- Distress it! Early Espresso ink and a Sponge Dauber are used to distress the edges of the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch. An Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker and a Color Spritzer Tool add instant speckles.
- Glitz and Glam! Basic Pearls add an elegant accent to the header of the card and accentuate the centers of the Punch Potpourri flowers.
