Embossed Gelatos Background

Hey all!

I was asked a number of times how I created the background for this card so I thought I’d give you a quick step by step.

I love Gelatos for fun and bright splashed of color. They are fairly new to me, but dang are they ever fun to play with. I made random circles with three different colors (Peach, Guava & Grape) and then smudged them with my finger. You can also add water with a mister to get a more “watercolor” look but I decided I liked it without for this project.

Then I used my Big Shot and the Sizzix Flower Ring & Clusters embossing folder and ta da… beautiful and fun background. Can’t get much easier than that.

This is my card for the Tiddly Inks CAS (#105) Challenge. I used the Wryn – Whatcha Doing image for my card.

I cut and scored a white square card back and then used my Majestic Labels Framelit die to create my shaped card. Make sure you put your fold line below the cutting edge of the die when you cut.

Die cut your shapes and assemble your card. Love how easy it is to die cut a colored image with Sizzix Framelits!
