Okay, back to business... ;) This month we're teaming up with Ellen Hutson and I decided to mix the cute Coffee Cup Tag set with some of Ellen's products to create a gift card holder. Unfortunately I keep forgetting that this envelope die was an exclusive product in the May 2016 My Monthly Hero kit but you can either make your own envelope or use this as inspiration for a full-sized card! :)
To start I die-cut the envelope with kraft paper. Then I stamped the cup, lid, and snowflakes with unicorn white pigment ink. I blasted it with my heat gun to set it and then colored the cup with colored pencils. Next I stamped the cup again with versamark and heat-embossed it with ultra high embossing powder. I didn't quite expect this but the embossing powder seemed to turn the ink slightly grey which looked pretty cool. Since the stamp has open sections for the design the versamark and embossing powder didn't cover up the entire design but that created even more texture! ;)
Then I fussy cut a sleeve and stamped the sentiment from Coffee Cup Tags and adhered it over the cup. Finally I die-cut the Ellen Hutson Many Thanks word die from dark red cardstock and adhered it to the gift card holder.
And that's my take on the texture challenge! :) There are a few more days to enter for a chance to win a prize from Ellen Hutson! I can't wait to see what you'll create! Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day!
