So I started to make this card keeping three things in mind – focus on sentiment, autumn colors, window.
I started with embossing and die cutting the hexagon window using Spellbinders Hexagon dies. I then prepared the background using distress oxide inks. Finally came the sentiment. For this I used Nuvo mousse in Lemon Sorbet, Fresh Copper and Cosmic Brown. I used finger dauber to apply these colors on a scrap piece of cardstock, then die cut it. The die comes from Winnie & Walter In A Word: Happy die set. I also die cut another piece using black cardstock and adhered it behind the other piece. The ‘for you’ comes from My Favorite Things Geometric Greenery, which I heat embossed in gold.
I adhered the colorful background on the card base and then mounted the window panel and the sentiment pieces on. But then, I felt that it was missing a bit of a sparkle that I wanted. So I used a bit of perfect pearls on both the sentiment and the background, just on a few spots, for a bit of sparkle. I also adhered a few sequins to embellish. And that finished my card.
I am joining the following challenges with my card –
