Let Our Lives Be Full

Hi! It's Jocelyn on the blog today.

It's Thanksgiving week in the U.S., and I was inspired to use the Be Full set. Instead of using the stamp as a Thanksgiving set, I wanted to use it for a thank you card that would work year-round.

Here's the finished card:

Thanks & Giving

Even though this card is pretty CAS, there are several layers. On top of the card base, I watercolored with spray mists. The mists have a great intensity. I used the watercoloring technique I learned from Yana. :)

Thanks & Giving

I didn't worry too much about how the watercoloring looked. Instead, I was going for loose blocks of colors.

While I was waiting for the watercoloring to dry, I die-cut a background from Wilna Furstenberg on my Cameo. While many backgrounds would work, the key is to die-cut it in white to contrast with the watercoloring.

Thanks & Giving

I die-cut part of a larger scene and simply trimmed off the edges for the final look.

For the third layer, I stamped the sentiment from the Be Full set on vellum, and heat embossed it with red glitter embossing powder.

Thanks & Giving

I trimmed down the layers and stitched the vellum to the backgrounds. The stitching allows the vellum to have a little lift at the bottom.

Thanks & Giving

So....does it work for a non-Thanksgiving card? Or do I need to send this card in the next two days? Ha!

Thanks for stopping by!
