Scripty Congrats

Today's card was made using a white crayon and an embossing folder to create a unique background.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • I cut a piece of white cardstock, placed it into the Woodgrain embossing folder and ran it through my die cutting machine to emboss it.
  • With the raised side facing up, I rubbed over it with a white crayon.  The crayon acts as a resist when I apply the ink.
  • Next, I rubbed some Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide ink pad over the embossed background.  To add a bit more definition, I rubbed on a small touch of Black Soot DOX ink.
  • While I set that aside to dry, I die cut the sentiment and the flourish from some plain white cardstock a few times and then stacked and glued them all together.  
  • I glued the woodgrain panel onto another piece of white cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • I glued the sentiment and the flourishes in place.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

What a great idea to use the wax resist technique on the woodgrain embossed background Karen, and the Hickory Smoke Oxide ink is a great colour, also the white sentiment and flourishes go beautifully over the top. x
