I'm always afraid of using patterned paper and have never had the courage to buy some online. This striped one is sold here in Chile, but I bet you can find prettier pads on amazon. I think I'll be placing an order soon. LOL!
I like the Distress Inks watercolor technique so much that I use it every time I can I colored the camera using Tumbled Glass, Broken China, Black Soot and Scattered Straw.
For the base card I used the We R Memory Keepers celebrate embossing folder and added color tapping the raised surface with the Iced Spruce distress ink pad.
I also went all the way and distressed the edges of the flash light cutout to give it some dimension with Vintage Photo distress ink and gave it a couple of spritzes of heirloom gold perfect pearls mist to make it shiny.
The word cutout is my handwriting and after I cut it, tapped the versamark ink pad on top of it and added some clear embossing powder. I decided I wanted more dimension and repeated the process. I've realized Judikins embossing powder aren't expensive at all and work great with a little heat.
The button is a plastic star embellishment sold here in Chile for school crafts for like a dollar the 10 units pack.
For this card I included the 4.25 x 5.5 in. base notecard in the file and it has cutting lines instead of scoring lines. If you want, just delete the layer and make it your own with half of a letter size white cardstock.
Here are the instructions
- Import in Cricut Design Space and resize to 5.5 inches wide
- Change camera layer to write and attach to camera offset path (background)
- If you want you can delete the base layer and use a 4.25x5.5 notecard
