- Stencils: AALL & Crate Lotza Semicirclz 6x6 stencil
- Sequins: Catherine Pooler's Phoenix sequin mix
- Tim Holtz Tonic Paper Distresser and Thread Cutter
- Liquid glue and Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape
To make this card, I started by sprinkling some Solar Flare and Sunray Crossette Shimmer Powder across a misted piece of watercolor paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the Happy Mail stamp over this paper and heat embossed it with the Black Sparkle embossing powder. Next, I used one of the medium sized deckle edge die. Then I used the Lotza Semicirclz stencil as a mask using Squeezed Lemonade and Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink and then ink blended Hickory Smoke and Carved Pumpkin around the edges of the paper. At this point, I decided to try my new Paper Distresser and distressed around the edges of this card. I then ran the Carved Pumpkin Distress Ink around the edges of the panel again.
Then I turned to the background paper. I diecut a piece of yellow patterned paper in my stash with the largest deckle edge die cut and then ink blended some Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink across the whole paper. I then used the Lotza Semicirclz stencil and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Oxide ink across the edges and then heat embossed the pattern with some Holographic embossing powder. I ink blended some Tea Dye around the edges and then some Carved Pumpkin around the edges as well. I then put the two layers of paper together with foam tape.
Next, I pulled out a few of the pieces of mail that I had left over from a previous card and fussy cut them out. I added foam tape behind them and arranged them over the same pieces of mail found on the yellow watercolor paper. I tried to arrange them so they were clustered towards the middle, and was able to cover up a few heat embossing problems. Then I added some of the yellow and clear sequins from the Phoenix sequin mix around the card.
To finish the card, I lightly ink blended the residual Carved Pumpkin ink on my blending foam around the edges of a white A2-sized side folding card base. Then I adhered the whole card panel to the cardbase with liquid glue.
