Summer Camp Week Four


For the last week of summer camp an array of blues and greens were chosen as the colors. I made a card for a very good friend who loves to read as much as I do.

I used a technique on the background of this card that Gina K demonstrated on Stamp TV. Basically, you cover the card stock with versamark and emboss with embossing powder. Then, run the heat embossed piece through an embossing machine with an embossing folder. This gives you a piece that's both heat and dry embossed. I wasn't going for a distressed look, but I sanded the piece lightly to bring out the swirls.
The main image is a Stampland stamp. I also bought the template for this stamp making it easy to color. Sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. Flowers are Prima.
