The Grove

Happy Father's Day to the best dad in the world!!  Almost 80 and still going strong.

Today, I'm featuring a card I designed using the new Summer Release from Memory Box.  It features the new Grove Leaves Die.  It coordinates with the previously released Grove Branch.  See how that happens??!!  :)

Pin It
  • Cut a piece of glossy paper to 3 3/4 X 5.
  • Choose 3 colors of Alcohol Inks.  I used Wild Plum, Bottle, and Stream.   Apply the alcohol inks onto felt attached to an Alcohol Blending tool, then squirt on some Alcohol Blending Solution.  Apply to the glossy paper using a pouncing motion and continue to turn the handle in your wrist as you cover the paper.  Set aside.
  • Die cut a piece of white cardstock (4 X 5 1/4) using the Grove Leaves Die from Memory Box.  Distress the edges with Brushed Corduroy.
  •  Attach the alcohol inked piece behind the Grove Leaves and then adhere to the front of a Mocha Note Card.
  • Die cut the Grove Branch from a piece of Mocha paper.  Run through a Xyron to make a sticker out of the die cut or add 2-way glue then attach to the front of the card.
  • Die cut a piece of Aloe paper using the Tessatina Border's everyone's favorite!  Run through the Xyron X and attach to the right side of the card.
  • Stamp sentiment using Coffee Archival Ink and adhere to a Mocha mat then attach to the front of card.
