Etched in Nature – Just For You

Very cool and rainy day here…so I chose to play in the Studio.

I started with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge (#519).

I added the colors from the Color Throw Down Challenge (#676) and two elements from the Just Add Ink Challenge (#587)

Here is what I made:



  • Paper:  Cold Press 140 lb. Watercolor Paper.
  • Card Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) The sentiment, Just For You, from the Etched in Nature stamp set was stamped in Versamark ink and heat-set with Gold Embossing Powder directly to the card front.
  • Panel: (2½” x 2¾”) Die-cut with one of the Decorative Scalloped Edged Rectangles from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies set.
  • Focal Image – Floral Elements: Two Flowers die-cut using dies from the Meadows Dies set.
    • The Flowers were water-colored with Real Red and Pear Pizzazz ink using a wet-on-wet technique with the Fine-Tipped Water Painter.
    • Once dry, Gilded Leafing was applied to a part of both Flowers.

Keeping the design clean and simple, the bottom of the panel was wrapped with a bit of Gold Metallic Trim from the retired Forever Greenery Combo Trim pack and popped up onto the card base, above the sentiment, with Dimensionals.  The Flowers were adhered on to the panel to complete the card.

A pretty little card with just a bit of gold glimmer. A perfect gift card for a Birthday Girl!

  1. The gold really steps this up a huge notch – but it’s an already spectacular card! Thank you for playing along this week at Freshly Made Sketches!


  2. What a gorgeous take on the sketch! This such a classy and artsy design. I love the hints of red paired with the touches of gold embossing. Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
