Hello crafty friends! Helen is here. I hope you've seen the amazing projects from my teammates for our cross promo with TapeRunner! And today is my turn. I made this Peace tall and slim card using the Fern Branch Chipboard Shape Embellishment and 6" Fruit of the Spirit Stencil.
I cut out the tall and slim card base using Silhouette Cameo 3. For the background mat, I trimmed a piece of scrapbook paper into 3" x 8 7/8" and then I distressed one edge of the paper with my distresser tool (if you don't have this tool, you can also use scissors, but be very careful!). I added the paper on the card with the TapeRunner.
I taped the 6" Fruits of the Spirit Stencil on the card using painter tape. I also taped around the word and then using make up sponge, I added the two shades of green pigment inks on the card. I removed the stencil to clean the ink of the stencil.
I dried the ink on the card with craft heater, then I added some anti-static powder on it. And then, I taped stencil back on the card. Using the Embossing Dauber, I added the clear embossing ink on the word. I removed the stencil carefully of the card and sprinkled some clear embossing powder on the word, then heat set the powder with craft heater.
Next, I cut the fern branch chipboard of the frame with scissors. I used the same embossing dauber to cover surface of the fern branch with the clear embossing ink. I put the inked fern branch on top of a coffee filter, and then sprinkled the Sage Embossing Glitter on it. I poured the whole jar on it to make sure it was covered well with the embossing powder.
I preheated my craft heater for couple seconds and then heat set the embossing powder. It was super fun to watch the embossing powder melt on the chipboard. Check out all the glitter on the fern branch!
I added the embossed fern branch on the card with the TapeRunner. I embellished the card with some pearl gems I have in my stash.
