Today is the last day of my week-long stroll through the Sale-a-Bration brochure, which also means today is the last day of Sale-a-Bration. Please tell me you haven’t forgotten. If you have, make sure you place your order today.
I don’t surf through many blogs, but most of the projects I have seen with the Vine Street Embossing Folder have been harsh and dark or bright and bold. For my first porject with this folder, I decided to go against the grain and attempt a soft and subtle image with the folder. Here’s my card:
- Using Core’dinations. I ran a piece of Pool Party Core’dinations card stock through the Big Shot with my Vine Street Embossing Folder, making sure the leaves would pop out on the textured side of the paper. I then sanded the images with my Stampin’ Sanding Block, exposing the white fiber beneath the Pool Party surface. This is something everyone should experience first hand. make sure to run the sanding block across the sides of the paper to add a finished look.
- Color Combinations. I kept is simple here. I tried to step “out of the box” to find a beautiful combination with the Pool Party Core’dinations card stock. I turned to my Designer Series Papers to find a color and pattern that would work with this image. The depth of Summer Starfruit is a wonderful highlight for this Pool Party card stock, don’t you think?
- Balance the patterns. As I looked through my Designer Series Paper, I knew I needed a paper with a small pattern to balance out the large shapes in the Vine Street Embossing Folder. This pattern from Birds of a Feather works perfectly!
