Aren’t the colours rich and beautiful? I combined Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango for this background. But you know what I like the best? The little splotches of white background peeking through where there is no colour. It adds so much more interest and really draws your eye! Those are the kind of happy results you can’t plan with this technique. Take a closer look to see for yourself.
Let’s get some detail on that embellishment.
See how I’ve combined both the framelits and thinlits from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits? There’s five different layers here to amp up my card.
- Copper metallic thread
- Tangerine Tango large leaf framelit
- Early Espresso small leaf framelit
- Shiny copper foil paper large detailed thinlit
- Copper trim bow tops it off
I couldn’t live without my ink pads. And I absolutely KNOW you’re the same. After all, what’s stamping without ink? But do you sometimes get into a rut and every single card you make sorta looks the same? Me too!
Well, now’s the time to try something new! Learn how your ink pads make the greatest background fall cards by taking a peek at my YouTube video. Then give this simple acrylic block technique a try for yourself to see what colour combinations you like the best.
This simple card has lots of punch both from the colour combinations and the embellishment. To recreate it in your own craft room, here’s everything you need.
