Alright, let’s get into how I put this card together!
I colored up my images with Copic Markers, fussy cut them out and set them aside for later. Taking an A2-sized piece of blending cardstock, I blended up a sunset ombré using Squeezed Lemonade, Carved Pumpkin, Picked Raspberry & Wilted Violet Distress Oxide Inks.
I splattered my panel with some water for bleach spots. Next, I took the Snowy Sky stencil by Lawn Fawn, placed it on top of my panel, secured it with Pixie Tape, and then applied a solid layer of Silver Glitz Glitter Gel using my Stencil Pal. I know this stencil is labeled as snow, but I figured these small dots would make for perfect stars too. I removed my stencil, set my panel aside to dry entirely, and cleaned off my stencil and tools immediately.
Next, I transferred some Blue Waves Foil by Brutus Monroe to a Toner Sheet by processing it through my laminator.
Once the foil was transferred, I trimmed down a 4.25″ long strip and die cut it using a Waves Die.
Using a Congrats Die, I die cut the word from a piece of Midnight Blue Flock and white cardstock. I used UltraBond adhesive to adhere the Midnight Blue die cut on top of the white cardstock die-cut, offsetting it a tad so I got some of the white peeking through.
Using Snowfall Embossing Powder, I heat embossed more of my sentiment and trimmed it into a narrow strip.
Finally, using a combination of UltraBond Adhesive and iCraft 3D Foam Tape (1/16″ in white), I adhered all of my elements to my dried Silver Glitz Gel sunset panel. I adhered my card to a card base and was completed!
Below are a few more images of the finalized card!
