Three Beautiful Cards by Natalie

Hey there crafty people!   Natalie here again and I am sharing a set of cards I created using Lindys Stamp Gang Sprays from the October Color Challenge set and some beautiful Embossing Powder.

I love to make cards – little works of art that I can gift to my friends and family.   When I create a set of cards, I have a slightly unusual way of creating … what works for me is creating in steps …I start by creating all of the ‘Card Fronts’ … layering up my papers first, inking and distressing the edges, stamping and embossing … for these cards, I used Cafe au Lait embossing powder on the backgrounds.

Next I focus on the embellishments and do all the heat embossing at the same time – I love to mix up my embossing powder and give the Imaginarium Designs Chipboard a two tone look – embossing half the chipboard in one color and then adding the second color on the rest.

I love to use white flowers and customize them to the project, so my next step is to add the flowers. When I add the color, I always start with the lightest color first then start layering on the darker shades until I’m happy. The last step is the assembly of the card … putting it all together.

For me, I find it quick and simple and this process allows me to make more than one card at a time.
