HERE. I used the left over from both backgrounds for the inside and the envelope.
A lot of people don't realize all of the things that can be done with Tsukineko Brilliance inks. This tutorial will include a couple.
- Inked CAC Thick Stripes with Memento Desert Sand and stamped on white cardstock.
- Inked CAC Floral Lines with Brilliance Moonlight White. After stamping the ink was covered with Stampendous White Detail Embossing Powder (I keep my powder in a plastic sandwich container. I can put the leftover powder right back into the container as I shake it off the cardstock. I have a little scoop I use to apply it.)
- I heated the embossed areas. Later you will see that Brilliance ink has a semi-fast drying quality. So some areas are embossed and other are not. It gives it shiny and flat white areas (A FAUX LOOK).
- Next the largest Spellbinder's largest Romantic Rectangle was put through the Cuttlebug with White cardstock for both the die cut and embossing.
- The die was then placed over the Faux Distressed background and traced.
- It was then cut out and set aside.
- Next I stamped the IO Romantic Rose with Brilliance Galaxy Gold 3 times. Once for the card front, once for the inside, and once for the outside. I will use parts of the image for each while including pieces of the background too.
- They were painted with Twinkling H2O's, turned over on a Pergamano mat and embossed with a stylus to give them depth.
- Viva Decor White Peal pen was used to accent the tiny white flowers.
- Another Romantic Rectangle die cut was used for the sentiment, Just For You, from All Occasions I clear stamp set.
- The lace and buttons are remnants from my stash. The ribbon is from the $1.00 bin at Michael's.
- The die cut was lined up with the right-hand and bottom margins of the cardstock. The open areas were used as guides for the edge of the card being created.
- The open spaces on the left and top were used for guides for marks with the stencil
- The left marks were used to cut the height of the card.
- The penciled marks at the top were used to find the middle fold and scored with the Scor-Pal.
- After folding the excess was trimmed to match as shown. Then the Rounded Corner Punch was used on the corners.
