It’s Ashleigh back on the blog today with an sweet little card, with a lovely Autumnal colour scheme. For this card, I combined the Bella Flora Borders stamp set (be quick – it’s retiring soon!) and Empower.
For this card, I first lined up the border in my stamping tool, inked it up with black ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder for some added shine. I repeated this with a sentiment stamp from Empower.
Once I had done my stamping, I ink blended three colours of ink all over the background, working from my darkest colour to the lightest as I worked my way to the bottom. From there, I lined up a stripy stencil over the top of my background and inked through it with the lightest colour ink – This just adds some really nice interest! To bring the heat embossed areas back, carefully wipe over the embossed areas with a paper towel to remove any excess ink.
To finish off the card, adhere the background onto a piece of black cardstock, and then onto a white card base. Add some clear embellishments to complete this card!
