Wheat

I had so much fun with the tic-tac-toe snow card, I decided to do another one with Wheat. The tic-tac-toe challenge is from Gina K Designs’ Monthly Challenge, and I decided to combine it with CASology’s Wheat Challenge.

This time for the tic-tac-toe, I went with Emboss Resist, Square, and Vellum. I used Gina K Designs Handmade Botanicals and Ranger Ink Gold Embossing Powder to heat emboss the gold wheat onto a square vellum. Then I used Clearly Besotted Simply Said Stamp Set for the sentiment.

If I understand Emboss Resist, you emboss first and then add ink after, which is what I did. The ink I used from top to bottom was Gina K Designs Wild Dandelion, Sweet Mango, and Dark Chocolate. I added some Jute rope to “tie” my wheat bundle together. I had to add a yellow border to add my adhesive on my vellum. Is there any adhesive that won’t show on vellum?

I didn’t like my first card, due to the vellum warping from heat embossing, and I couldn’t lay it flat down completely. I actually liked the card I came up with, so I decided to make a second version, hoping it wouldn’t warp as much.

Second time around, my vellum didn’t warp as much. 🥳For the ink, I changed it up a bit and instead of GKD Dark Chocolate, I used Red Velvet instead. The sentiment used was from GKD Wealth of Wishes.
