Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin aka the artful inker. The school year is coming to a close and so is one of the things I volunteer with. For the last six years, I have had the pleasure to volunteer with the band and orchestra at the local high school. Since I have not had a student at the school for a couple of years and the current director is retiring, I decided it was time for me to move on to my next volunteer opportunity. The director is fabulous! What she has done with the program in the years she has been at the school is beyond amazing for one person to have accomplished. I created today’s Oh So Eclectic with Embossing Mats card to give to her to congratulate her on her retirement and her new position at the college level.
Oh So Eclectic with Embossing Mats
This is the card I created to give to the awesome high school instrumental music director.
For my Oh So Eclectic card, I started with a Thick Whisper White base.
Then, I added a layer of Tranquil Tide.
Before adding the Mint Macaron layer, I ran it through the Big Shot several times with
the diamond pattern Eclectic Layers Thinlit and an embossing mat.
This created an all over background pattern.
Over that layer, I added leaves and flowers stamped in Tranquil Tide,
Mint Macaron and Daffodil Delight.
Next, I cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the gem outline thinlit.
Then, I ran the Crumb Cake piece through the Big Shot again with the diamond thinlit
and an embossing mat.
Before adding the Crumb Cake piece to the card, I daubed on Crumb Cake ink and brushed it with Wink of Stella.
To finish the card, I added loops of Gold Metallic Thread, Pearl Basic Gems and
embossed Crumb Cake die cuts left over from the video below.
Here’s a quick video to show you how to use the new Embossing Mats and
the difference in appearance you can achieve with them.
