When I saw Sandi’s Joseph’s Coat Technique Card I was so excited. I want to immediately CASE it. You can see her directions here: Sandi MacIver. I changed the colors a bit and this is the result! Stunning don’t you think? Thank you Sandi!
The card base is Early Espresso Card Stock layered with Delightful Dijon and Cajun Craze Card Stock. Following Sandi’s steps I used a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock (a bit bigger than I was going to need) I sponged vigorously and randomly using Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie Ink. I gave it time to dry a bit then using the embossing buddy I liberally dusted it to also make sure the ink was dry. Then using various stamps from the Stampin’ Up! Vintage Leaves Stamp Set I stamped randomly using Versamark Ink. The impressions were heat embossed using Clear Embossing Powder. Next I used a sponge to cover all with Early Espresso Ink from the Inkpad. Quickly working, I polished the card using a paper towel and this is the result.
Some areas turned out better than others and I chose carefully and cut the finished piece to the correct size. Next I added a piece of 3/8″ Delightful Dijon Ribbon to the lower 1/3. Using a very short piece I tied a knot towards the left side.
Next I stamped the sentiment from Suite Season stamp set in Delightful Dijon on Very Vanilla Card Stock. Sponging the edge of the sentiment with Delightful Dijon Ink after die cutting the oval using the Layering Ovals Framelits to fit the sentiment. Then choosing the next size up of oval I die cut an oval in Delightful Dijon Card Stock. Layering these together using SNAIL adhesive. The sentiment was then adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The inside of the card was finished by layering Delightful Dijon Card Stock on the back side adhering with SNAIL adhesive. The final layer is Very Vanilla Card Stock and stamping in the lower right corner two various leaves from the Vintage Leaves Stamp Set in Cajun Craze and Delightful Dijon.
