First I cut a piece of Neenah 80lb Solar white cardstock to 4"H by 5"wide. I then used a Hero Arts bicycle rubber stamp and stamped it offset on the card using Hero Arts India Ink. When this ink dries, you can watercolor without repercussion. I also stamped some flowers and leaves from Hero Arts Flower Garden stamp set in the corner of the card. I like this stamp set because it has both line and solid images. To stamp the flowers and leaves, I used Hero Arts Shadow Inks: Field Greens, Passion Flower, Bubblegum and Soft Pink.
I wanted to heat emboss the sentiment to give the card some shine and dimension. After prepping the paper with the EK Powder Tool, I stamped the Hero Arts Bonjour stamp using VersaMark ink. I then sprinkled on WOW! Super Fine Copper Embossing powder and heat set it. I love the way "Bonjour" stands out on the card. Since I had all the embossing supplies out anyway, I took some solid flowers from Hero Arts Flower Garden and embossed them onto the front of the envelope.
For assembly of the card, I used a premade A2 sized Kraft card from Michael's Recollections collection. I adhered the white card front with adhesive and offset the panel to the right side allowing me to place a piece of 4" Washi tape on the left of the card. I found this Washi tape on a trip to Michael's and loved how it had the cutouts and glitter.
Thanks for joining me today at Seven's Crafts. I hope you feel inspired to say Bonjour to someone. Have a great day!
