Windmill - Avery Elle card

Hello and Merry Christmas everyone!
I'm here today with a colorful card featuring the pretty Windmill set. This set is perfect for creating scenes on your cards, and is great for just because cards.


I stamped all the little elements on watercolor paper and colored them using my watercolor brush makers, so relaxing! This set is also perfect for adding a littlr interactive element, just adding a brad on the center of the windmill blades :).


I also tried a fun technique to add some texture and additional interest to the card. I used the clouds from the Picket Fence set and embossed the background to create a fun cloudy sky. To do this technique you need to open the plataform of your cutting machine just like when you use embossing folders. I used an embossing mat but a piece of foam works well too. Place your elements like in the picture bellow: Plataform + embossing mat/foam + cardstock + die + plataform. Test with a small piece first to see if you like the embossing effect. You can always add more foam or a thicker cardstock. I really love the look!


This card looks elaborate but, as I only used watercolors, it's really very quick to make. Just stamping, coloring, dire cutting and adhereing everything together on the base card :)

I hope you like it, thank you so much for stopping by today, have an amazing Christmas!
