I made a card today that just screams summertime! :)
I made this cute craft on craft card today. It's an craft colored A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") card base, the mat is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of craft embossed with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I printed the sentiment directly on the mat using Edwardian Script at 36 points. Then I masked the embossing folder so it wouldn't emboss over the sentiment.
For the central cut, I cut the strawberries from Preserves at 1". The scalloped oval is from Gypsy Font at 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" and the oval is from Gypsy Wanderings at 2" x 3". I reverse embossed the strawberries and mounted the left one up on pop dots (as well as the stem).
Here you can see how the sentiment section is not embossed. I added some white gel pen doodles around the central cut and the card base.
I love adding buttons to my project, these are tied with some white string before attaching them with hot glue.
I added a spare flower to the inside of the card and drew some matching gel pen stitches.
From this angle, you sure can see all the texture that the embossing adds. I love that. For the ribbon layer, I added a wider strip of sheer white ribbon under two lengths of red and white bakers twine. I tied the bow with my Bow Easy before attaching the ribbon to the card.
