Relax and feel better ...

A friend is going to be having some surgery this week so I thought I would make her this card to remind her to relax and take care of herself after wards.

I also used this card for the challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut blog. The challenge was to use any kind of embossing.

The How To's

There are two really fun things about this card. The "bubble bath" is from a combination of stickles and micro beads. I thought it came out fun and frothy.

The tile floor I designed using a combination of heat and dry embossing.

1. Use a stylus and ruler to score on the diagonal on a piece of patterned paper.

2. Use a signo white gel pen and a ruler to fill in the scored lines.

3. Apply VersaMark ink to entire piece of patterned paper.

4. Apply clear embossing powder and heat.

I love that it came out like travertine tile. I even "burned" a few areas to get some pretty color variegation.


  1. Love the tile! Very creative...TFS

  2. Great details! This would be a handy card for many occasions, and would look lovely in a gift basket of bath goodies :)
