The Little Things Count Card

Pin It! I made this card for a friend of mine who is going through a pretty rough time in her life. I made it by stamping the flowers and bird with embossing ink and using the clear embossing powder. This lets the color of the cardstock show through the stamped areas. I then ink over the card with my Distress inks using the sponge applicators. I made a faux scene with the green bottom, sky and sun colors. I then stamped the Tim Holtz stamp verse "it's the little things that make life big" over the image. I rounded the corners with my 1/4" corner chomper and I'm done. The inside I left blank so I can write a note to her.

Very pretty card. That technique is so fun and easy :)

This is really very pretty. It sounds like it would be relatively quick too. May have to give the technique a go.

Just shows that you do not have to do alot every time to get a beautiful peice of work! Have you tried the stamping with embossing ink and water yet? I did some tags yesterday and was really surprised at how well they came out. At first I questioned it but the longer they sat the more it transformed even after the heat gun... It seemed like it anyway... Nice Card! ~Sherry F.

Hello Christie

a simple, but nice card ! Nice colors and the technique with the embossing powder is perfect with this composition. The stamped images come out great.

What a beautiful card that will surely cheer your friend up. The embossing will add texture that can be rubbed as a reminder of your friendhip (yeah I'm a little sappy, but that's probably what I'd do!) Thanks for sharing!

Lovely, simple and perfect! I've never used Distress inks, and am curious about exactly what they are.

This is beautiful! I just learned how to emboss and this totally makes me want to run out and buy clear powder! :)
