Hey Crafty People!
I’m so excited to be sharing my first post as Rachel Vass Designs Guest Designer for August 2020!
This gorgeous Sunmer Floral design is perfectly proportioned for a slimline card and I wanted to keep it simple to let it really shine; I printed it onto Neenah 80lb cardstock & coloured it using a mixture of Copics and Winsor & Newton Alcohol Markers.
I wanted to keep it bright and Summery so I chose colours that would fit in with that and I just sat & enjoyed the process of colouring.
I printed off one of the sentiments from the release; they are reverse, meaning they’re black with white letters. I used my laminator to add gold foil, (I have lots of posts with explanations on how I do this.)
Once coloured, I trimmed the panel down to be 3 1/4 inch by 8 inch and then I cut down & scored a sheet of mint cardstock from Papermill Direct to give me a card that measured 3.5 inch x 8 1/4 inch. This allows for a small border to be visible around the panel.
I added a few gold confetti pieces from Little Things by Lucy’s Cards and then popped the whole panel up on foam tape to attach it to my card base.
I’ll be back every week in August, with another Rachel Vass Designs release.
Please be aware:
As part of my Design Team and Guest Design work I do often receive free products to use, but I only ever recommend products that I genuinely love.
Also, I know how incredibly lucky I am to have these opportunities, but you don’t always NEED the newest products or the ‘full set’, so please don’t feel that you need everything. I like to show a variety of brands and products; this way; this way there will be something for everybody to enjoy.
