Trisha’s Elegant Nature’s Textures Postcard!Katie Heron
Hello fellow crafters,
I love the new Nature’s Textures range, especially the beautiful Embellishment Pack! And the good news is, you can still buy the collection for an amazing price over at The Craft Store! As part of the Angela Poole Design Team, I made the card below and thought I would share some steps with you today of how to create it yourself.
Firstly, I started by cutting out the two birds on the small cream card found amongst the lovely card sheets in the Embellishment Pack. (There are pre-die-cut shapes in the pack as well if you don’t want to cut into your card sheets!) I then chose a small cream postcard and an A6 Kraft card. Using my anti static bag, I wiped the Kraft card ready to apply embossing powder. I used my Hexagon stencil from the Nature’s Textures Hexagon Layering Stamp & Stencil Set, and also wiped this with the anti static bag.
Using a dauber, I went over the stencil with light brown ink in the top left hand corner only.
Using a heat gun, I then sealed the clear embossing powder. I repeated these steps on the bottom right-hand corner of the card.
I then fastened the postcard slightly tilted on to the card blank, with the birds positioned in the top left hand corner and the bottom right to synchronise with the embossed areas.
I used the corner frame stamp from the Stamp & Stencil set, and stamped the frame in a darker brown ink in two different positions. I cut the two corner frames out and stuck them in the two opposite corners to where the birds were positioned.
Mixing word stamps from all three Nature’s Textures Layering Stamp & Stencil sets, I stamped ‘Just a note’, ‘You are’ and ‘Amazing’ on to the left side of the postcard. On the adjacent side, I used the stamps ‘My’, ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Friend’. I used a stamping platform to help keep everything in place.
I then used the cross stitch stamp to act as kisses on the postcard. Finally, I took some of the brown and white twine from the Embellishment Pack and tied it around the card blank at the top. I sewed the key charm into the twine to hang freely.
I hope you love this card as much as I do, and have a go at making one yourself!
