Today's one layer card is simply beautiful and easy to make. Send a ray of sunshine with this handmade card that marries two popular stamping techniques-Heat Embossing and watercoloring.
For my card base, I used a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Shimmery White Card Stock scored at 4-1/4". Love that you can watercolor on the Shimmery White Card Stock and that it shimmers. Next, I stamped my flower from the You've Got This Stamp set with Whisper White Craft Ink to frame my birthday wish and I heat embossed it with White Emboss Powder. This makes a lovely soft, white outline for coloring.
Next, I washed Daffodil Delight and Old Olive ink inside the outline with my Aqua Painter. Hint: Take care to color multiple shades of color. Did you notice the fabulous bling? After my flower was dry, I painted over my flowers one last time with my Clear Wink of Stella Brush. Wow!
Here's another tip. Add a pop of interest to you one layer card with panels of color on the inside. As an added bonus, the interior card stock works to restore shape to a watercolored and/or heat embossed card.
I carried the white embossing over into the inside of my card and to my handmade envelope which I made with the Envelope Punch Board. My Birthday Stamps are from the Better Together Stamp Set.
Have a fabulous day,
