World Map and Mosaic Madness: Convention 2014 swap card

pals-swap-2014 (2 of 2)

This is the card I made for our swap at the 2014 Stampin’ Up Convention.  Originally, I was going to try to be a little less ambitious than last year, when I made about forty cards that each required several feet of ribbon, but I really loved the brayer-and-embossing-folder technique I used, so I came up with a variation.

This is Whisper White card stock embossed with the Mosaic embossing folder.  The pastel rainbow coloring is done with a brayer and Stampin’ Up’s Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry ink pads.

And then the World Map background stamp!  I love this stamp and it is my favorite ever!  When I was explaining how to make this card, nobody believed this, but you get the kind of random pattern on the front by inking up the stamp with Crumb Cake, setting it with the ink side up, and then slapping the card stock on it a couple times.

And then that is Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon, and the mosaic punch and the ‘thank you’ stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes to make the the sentiment out of my pile of brayer rejects!

Note to self: it is really, really hard to brayer 50 cards that all look the same!
