Hello Lovelies! There is a rainbow for every season and I need very little encouragement to make a colorful card! The Falling Leaves 3D Embossing Folder from the Season of Wonder release gave me a perfect excuse to "rainbow"!
This is a Made in Minutes card where the focus is keeping it simple, but not sacrificing any pretty. Today we will emboss, ink-blend, splatter and die-cut.
Before we get to the details let's take a peek at our key supplies:

THANKS FALL RAINBOW CARD - Embossing, Distressed Ink-blending, Splattering Die-cutting
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Embossed Layer: 4 " x 5 1/4"
Distress Inks: Seedless Preserves, Mustard Seed, Prize Ribbon, Brushed Corduroy
Distress Paint: Tarnished Brass
EMBOSSING & INK-BLENDING
Use Large Blending Brushes to ink-blend the four Distress Ink colors onto the embossed panel in the following order starting at the top left and continuing clockwise:
SPLATTERING & DIE-CUTTING
Spritz the embossed panel with large droplets of water from a Distress Sprayer and let dry
Splatter the paint onto the embossed panel repeatedly until you are happy with the result and let dry
Pop up embossed panel with Foam Tape and adhere to a Card Front
This approach should work well over almost any embossed design, so if you prefer to use another folder or want to make a couple different designs, go for it, you can't go wrong with these colors!
The splatter shows up beautifully against the ink-blending!
The glitter sentiment almost looks like jewelry here and the stark contrast of the white sentiment strips stands out against the intense background.
I couldn't resist adding some gold glitter drops to match the "Thanks" sentiment!
Thank you for stopping by and hope that you will be back! Happy Crafting!
