Oh, mama! Does it ever feel good to have both hands back into the crafty vibe! I’m still working on getting some of the strength back in the hand that broke, but it’s getting stronger all the time and that is a good thing. Today, I’m happy to share a new card that was inspired by my friend and a woman in this industry who I adore, Gina K. from Gina K. Designs and StampTV. I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent watching Gina’s videos on her channel over at YouTube. I love Gina’s style of teaching and the fact that she does her videos live in the sense that she is doing is and talking, rather than editing it and adding voice over. There is something about hearing the process as it’s happening that I find really educational and well-paced.
The card I’m sharing today features a partially embossed background that I learned from Gina by watching this video. I only own two embossing folders, but I knew instantly that I could make the card you see today, which also features my brand new Archie Solid Letters alpha die set. I love how Gina uses the Scor-Buddy to add extra detail to her cards, so I did the same!
This card also features scraps of cardstock to create a rainbow sentiment. Ever since I started card making last year, I’ve gotten much better at saving every last scrap because you can really get a lot of use out them, especially on a project like this. Here is the video showing you how I made the card:
