Today's project is a cheerful card that could be given for several different occasions. It could easily be a thank you card, a love note to a spouse or child or even as a note of encouragement. I found myself calling this my raspberry sorbet card. It's so bright and cheerful, I dare you not to smile!
The typewriter resist background was heat embossed and then I applied ink heavy at the bottom of the card and worked it up lighter and lighter to the top. This created an ombre effect that makes the card really work. I applied the angled vellum panel to the bottom corner and used the sentiment tag to secure it so it stays in place but doesn't show glue anywhere. Finally the glitter confetti pieces balance the whole card out and gives it a little pop.
