It’s A Celebration!

Last week my husband got me BIG SURPRISE, a new embossing machine, WRMK Evolution Advanced on their launch day and it arrived on Monday! I was super excited and tried it right away. What makes me super happy is that all Close To My Heart Embossing Folders fit perfectly on this machine. And today I would love to share with you the second graduation card I made for a friend:

It's A Celebrations! A graduation card by Helen Gullett | #card #handmadecards #closetomyheart #watercolor #embossing

I cut Black Cardstock (1386) to make 4.25″x5.5″ base card. Then I cut a piece of 4″x5.25″ of White Daisy Cardstock (1385) to emboss it using Quatrefoil Embossing Folder (Z1926)

After embossing the White Cardstock, I colored the quatrefoils with CTMH Watercolor Pencils, Basic colors (retired), and then I wet it lightly & quickly using CTMH brush (retired). Then I heated it to dry using CTMH craft heater (retired).

When the watercolor background dried completely, I stamped the banner from Banner Wishes(B1438) stamp set using Black Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad and heat embossed it with glitter embossing powder. Then I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set with Lagoon Exclusive Inks Mini Pigment Pad, heat embossed it with glitter embossing powder.

After all dried up well with craft heater, I added the embossed & stamped cardstock on the card based using a lot of Tombow Adhesive so that the cardstock would lay flat on the card. I finished my card with a banner and arrow border I cut out of Skylark Paper Packet (Z7177B) that I glued them using Glue Dots and then I added couple staples on them.

Card is done! Hope you like it and have a fun crafty day!
