Hello Friends and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! Today’s card is featuring the new Tropical Leaves from Reverse Confetti’s July release! It’s a super simple card, but I love the greens and yellows! Let’s get into it!
I’m going to start off by saying that the gel print that these leaves were made from was created a REALLY long time ago! This particular gel print was made using regular, inexpensive acrylic paint on thin white paper. The only other tools used were a gel plate, obviously, and a brayer.
To begin this project, I cut an A2 card base using Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock and added some ink blending using PinkFresh Studio Fresh Pear and Lemon Whip inks, along with some white splatter using Royal Talens Amsterdam Titanium White Acrylic Ink. I love this ink for splatter because it stays bright white, and it has the perfect splatter consistency! I used the Reverse Confetti Stitched Note and Frames Confetti Cuts to cut a panel of Neenah 110lb, and adhered the outside frame to my card base using foam tape.
I used the RC Celebrate Tag Confetti Cuts to cut the shadow portion from patterned paper from Vicki Boutin, and the letters from black cardstock twice. I adhered all of those together using glue. I then glued the sentiment to the note portion of the frames, and adhered that in the center of my card using foam tape.
I stamped the Tropical Leaves on my gel print using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed them using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. Once that was done, I used the Tropical Leaves Confetti Cuts die to run those through my die cutting machine. Remember earlier when I said that this gel print was created on thin white paper? Well, my leaves needed some extra thickness, so I ran the leaf die cuts through the machine again using Neenah 110lb and glued those together for sturdiness. Those were then glued to the corners of my card.
To finish up, I added some sparkling clear confetti, because bling! See, super simple card! I just loved how that patterned paper matched my gel print leaves so well! If you haven’t checked out the Reverse Confetti July release, whatchoo waiting for?!?!
Thanks again for stopping by today, and don’t forget to stay awesome!
