Cheerful Get Well
This is another commissioned card for my client. She wanted an assortment of bright, cheery get well cards, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to try out the Versa Shadow Technique. It's a quick technique that can turn an ordinary card into a WOW card!
It works best on medium- to deep-colored cardstock. Stamp and heat emboss the image with light-colored embossing powder and a heat tool. (Don't forget to use an embossing buddy first to eliminate static!) Then take a VersaMark pen, and trace around the image to make the "shadow". Easy-peasy!
Actually, there are two techniques on this card. I did the "rock & roll" technique on the flower.
