For the first card, I used another Somerset Studio artist paper, as I very much enjoy the artistic look of them... a development skill I really want to acquire. Notice the script in the paper... which is where i got the idea for this card!
I decided to use the leaf from the Letting Go kit. Using purple, red and blue archival inks, I stamped the leaf out. I then added coordinating brighter/darker watercolors to the image. Using the 6/17 Be Fearless SMAK kit, I white embossed the script over the image and fussy cut it out.
To make the card stand out, I used purple paper as a foundation, to frame a purple embossed random Unity birthday greeting, and as a fussy cut shadow for the leaf. I added purple crystals for accent.
The second card began with watercolor paper and 2 Altenew spray inks ihtn blue and green. I then used the wonderfully versatile Small Details background stamp with Coffee archival ink. I also randomly added some Dinged Dots using the archival ink as well. I then added the corner stamp from the Hello Beautiful kit using a brown Nuvo embossing powder.
Next, I turned to the main image, the car from the Consider Yourself Vintage kit. The image was embossed using Aqua Tinsel powder. After consideration, I decided just to use just one of the sentiments from the kit (knowing my audience). I pulled another sentiment from Slowly Turning Classic. I decided to use vintage ephemera to stamp the images on using Ground Espresso oxide ink. I also used a long stamp from an old kit to stamp around the sentiments. I then cut the sentiments down.
Having the base piece, car and the sentiments, I decided to pull Kraft cardstock and looked for a "road" like stamp. Found one in the The Ocean is Calling. I stamped it on the card stock and white embossed it on the background several times. I tore the Kraft cardstock, attached everything together onto a Kraft card base, and added crystals, studs and ribbon to complete the card.
