Hey there! I've had internet issues this morning, so I'm later than normal getting my blog post up. I wasn't able to get my post scheduled last night either because I didn't get to work on my third and final card for the May Online Class yesterday. I had some kind of weird tummy bug that kept me feeling uncomfortable and listless a lot of the day yesterday. Today's card is another Marquee Messages card, but it's not one of the May Online Class cards. It's actually the first Marquee Messages card I created. I used the "Color-Blocking" technique with all of the new 2016-2017 In Colors:
I used four of the five new In Colors: Emerald Envy, Flirty Flamingo, Dapper Denim, and Peekaboo Peach. I cut all four colors 4" x 5 1/4", then cut each into four pieces 2" x 2 5/8". I adhered one of each color to a Very Vanilla base of 4" x 5 1/4' with SNAIL, then embossed with the Confetti Textured Impressions folder.
After adding a 3" x 4" rectangle of Basic Black, I embossed the marquee image three times on Dapper Denim, Peekaboo Peach, and Flirty Flamingo with new Copper Embossing Powder.
I embossed "IT'S YOUR" and "Birthday!" also with copper powder. All the the sections are hand-cut with Paper Snips, then added around the center with SNAIL.
I repeated the background on the inside, then embossed the "Awesome!" sentiment with copper powder. For the silver sparkles I stamped the sparkle image from Marquee Messages on the back side of Silver Glimmer paper, cut out with snips, then added to the card front and inside with glue dots.
