My card today is a bright cheerful one that I created with Penny Black's To You stamp set and several colors of Sakura Glaze pens. I stamped the images on white card stock in Versafine ink and clear embossed them. I did that so that when I used the glaze pens (which have a tendency to spread out quite a bit) that the ink would stay in the lines and I wouldn't lose any of the details of the images. Then, I set them aside to dry for a bit.
The card front itself is embossed with a large petite oval die and then layered onto yellow card stocks. I don't use yellow enough for my cards - I love how bright and sunny this turned out, especially with that fun polka dot bow!
After the glaze had dried, I carefully cut around the entire image and mounted it on the card front as shown. The sentiment is also stamped in Versafine ink and clear embossed.
I hope you have a bright and cheerful day today!
