I knew I wanted a fun backgroundÂ so when I spied a watermark pen and orange glitter embossing powder, I decided to try creating a hand-lettered background. This is a wonderful way to add a personalized touch to your cards. Simply hand-write a sentiment or words onto cardstock with a watermark pen, one line at a time, and sprinkle on embossing powder; once you’re done, use an embossing tool to heat-emboss the letters.
To secure the hand-lettered background to my card base, I used Glue Lines from Glue Dots. This was my first time using them and I was pleasantly surprised at how well just a few of the lines held the layers together. I also used Pop Up Dots on this card to secure the pumpkin circle to the card. I love dimension on cards so I’m always reaching for pop up dots; those dots make it so easy toÂ add a little pop of interest to your cards!
Supplies used: Glue Lines, Pop Up Dots and Ultra Thin Dots from Glue Dots; Rainbow Brights patterned paper from Taylored Expressions; Peek a Boo stamp set from The Greeting Farm; Memento tuxedo black ink pad from IMAGINE Crafts.
Next up on the hop is the lovely Amanda Tibbitts!
