Because

Yay!  I'm thrilled to report that I finished all the Camp Create challenges!  From deciding I didn't have time to fit them in this time, to making the call to give it a go two days ago, I managed to make 6 cards and blog them!  This last card is for the Awesome Ombre challenge.




I just love the yellow to orange ombre look and used five Distress Inks to create this panel.  I then die-cut the panel with the Vertical Stitched Strip die and adhered it to my white top-folding card base.  The 'because' was die-cut four times and stacked and the top layer was given a coating of clear sparkle pen.  The rest of the sentiment was white-embossed onto black.


All in all a simple card.  And if you've seen all my Camp Create cards, you'll probably see a pattern emerging - ink-blending, white embossed sentiments and black die-cuts.  When I'm in a rush, I tend to revert to my favorite techniques and looks 😊

Thanks for visiting!
