I am at that point again where the lady at my church who sends cards to those who deal with grief or other crisis situations needs more of them. I volunteered to create the cards for her because there really isn't anything more special than receiving a handmade card, right?
Emboss resist - something I don't do very often. I wanted to do it directly on the card so washi tape worked great to keep the ink from "traveling" outside the desired area. I have also learned to keep a container of wipes at my workspace so I can wipe my hands after using sponges because I have ruined far too many cards with fingerprints where they don't belong... Such is the life of a paper crafter!
