When the invitation goes out to hang out with Theresa U for an evening of 1:1 instruction on card making, you don't say no!
What a blast!! DS and I enjoyed an excellent dinner of fantastically BBQ'd burgers with LK and the family, a DQ Ice Cream cake for dessert (thanks dessert friends!) and then the ladies headed to Theresa's dream craft room while DS and Chad rocked out on GH3.
It is a room of paradise, I'm telling you!!
And an awesome evening where Theresa espoused her vast knowledge of all things card-making to show LK and I how to create a card using reverse embossing and a little distressing.
We used clear embossing powder on super smooth white paper (Cornish Heritage Farms) and stamped the branch image using Versamark. Next, we distressed using a sponge and some Tim Holtz distress ink to give it that 'sky' background, stamped the Paper Trey branch image, added the sentiment as well as some embellishments (including some Liquid Pearls- awesome idea, Theresa!!) before securing it to the brown card stock.
This was my final product. LK's looked awesome as well; hopefully she will post a picture!
Now I'm so pumped to use my new reverse embossing skill! YAY! There will likely be many more such cards gracing this blog in the future.
THANK YOU, THERESA!!!
