Spellbinders | Embossing Folder of The Month | August 2022 | Intertwined Lattice

Spellbinders August Embossing Folder of The Month Kit + Baby Card.

Blue Card for a Baby Shower

I LOVE the Spellbinders August Embossing Folder of the Month! It is called Intertwined Lattice, is very versatile and will work with so many designs. For my baby card, I “debossed” my panel which means the design is pressed below the paper’s surface. I then paired my debossed panel with one of my new favorites: Balloon Party Animal (S3-450). The blue print background is from Spellbinders Cheerful Occasions Paper Pad and I used Craft Foam under the top panel for dimension.

I think this is an adorable baby card.

For my second card, I used the “embossed” side of the panel. Embossing means the design is raised above the panel. The August embossing folder is beautiful embossed (below) and debossed (card #1 above)

I love the texture that the embossing adds to cards. For this card I used three of Spellbinders August 2022 Subscription Kits: Large Die of the Month called Strawberry Patch, Small Die of the Month and Embossing Folder of the Month. The sentiment was die-cut from Brushed Gold Cardstock using Outlined Sentiments dies and I love the bit of glow it adds to the card.

Giraffe Baby Shower Card

I am going to a baby shower and the theme is giraffes.

Simon Says Stamp Stacking Animals giraffe
My friend\’s daughter is having a little girl so I went with a pink and yellow color theme.  SSS\’s Stacking animals is one of my favorite stamps sets and the giraffe always makes me smile.
I started by watercoloring a background panel with Rose Madder on Ranger Watercolor paper.  I colored the silly giraffe with Copic RV04, Y00, Y06 and Y08 and then die cut.  
My idea was to have the giraffe peeking out of a circle die cut window with the pink background.   I stamped the Stamping Bella (Baby Carriage) sentiment added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels and paired with a bright pink envelop.  This card came together very quickly.

Looking forward to taking this card to the shower.
UPDATE:  I was excited to learn that this card was selected as the CAS on Friday Winner!  I will be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge.

Baby Shower Card

One of my girlfriends is about to become a grandmother and I wanted to make a card for the shower.  The baby is a little girl to be named London….so cute.

When I saw this Polkadoodles \”Hanging Out\” stamp , I ordered it that very same day!  I\’ve made three cards so far and I love them all.  For this card I  embossed the image on Bristol cardstock and then used my Tombow Watercolor markers.   Since London is a girl, I thought a pink bunny would be appropriate.   I then hand striped the A2 base card and added some Studio Katia clear drops. This image is so fun to work with.

I am entering this card in the following Challenges:
