Hello and Welcome!!!
Watch video tutorial here!!!
I’m so happy to be showing you a fun tag card which I created to kick off Ai’s brand new blog challenge which is called “Emboss like a BOSS!”. Any embossing will do…including both wet and dry techniques! We will be using both today!
For today’s feature card we will be using the adorable Ai Baby Critters Set (5400) which includes several fun birthday critters along with several coordinating sentiments. We will be using many of these sentiments for this card!
Let’s get started by stamping and coloring in all of our images using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens in the following colors: Blender, Sugared Almond Pink, Pale Orange, Purple, Yellow, Bright Yellow, Persian Green, Lt Gray, Mid Gray, Beige, Mid Brown.
We’ll also add some details to the balloons and little elephant using a white gel pen. This is a great way to personalized your images!
Next we will die cut a fun stitched tag from the Ai Tag Stitched Die Set (5132) using some Strathmore Bristol Smooth 100lb Cardstock. We will stamp and emboss several sentiments from this set using clear ink and white embossing powder. This will act as a resist for the layer of Distress Oxide Ink (Speckled Egg) that we will be applying over the top of these sentiments. Just be sure to grab a paper towel and wipe off any excess ink that is sitting on top of the sentiments because it will not dry and could rub off!
We will add a bit of a floral border at the bottom of the tag using the Ai Easter Journal Paper Pack (5742). This patterned paper will coordinate well with the coloring we have already done.
Next let’s add a bit of baker’s twine and a bow to the top of the tag!
Now we can add some texture and dimension to our card using a 3D Geometric Flowers Embossing Folder. We will keep this background in plain white so that the tag remains our focal point!
Finally, we can assemble the card and add a bit of sparkle with some pretty teal colored opalescent sequins!
It’s really fun to combine the wet and dry embossing techniques for adding lots and lots of dimension and texture to your cards!
