Hello friends!! It’s Channin here with a new card and video!! Today I will be creating a cheery rainbow card with the Hugs Enclosed set. Watch to see how I use emboss resist to create a subtle background to highlight the sentiment.

VIDEO: Emboss Resist for Subtle Background

To create this card I first, ink blended an A2 panel of white cardstock with several Distress Ink (Mustard Seed, Speckled Egg, & Kitsch Flamingo). Next, I throughly dried my panel with my heat gun and then stamped it with the background stamp in VersaMark ink. I then heat embossed the panel in clear embossing powder. Next, I ink blended over the panel with the same colors to make them bolder.

When I finished ink blending the panel I then trimmed it down to 3 3/8” x 4 5/8”. Next, I adhered two small scrap panels together and then behind the blended panel. I then adhered the panel to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. 

Next, I stamped a sentiment and envelope in VersaMark Ink onto gray cardstock. I then heat embossed in white and then die cut out with the matching dies. Next, I colored the heart on the envelope with a pink colored pencil. I then finished the card by adhering the sentiment and envelope to the card, using stacked paper strips to add dimension.

I hope you enjoyed my card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
