Hello everyone!!! Hope your week is going well so far! It’s TaeEun here today with an encouragement card! The first day of the new school year is just around the corner (at least where I am 🙂 )! So I thought some of our younger friends need a good amount of encouragement to start off their new chapter !
For today’s card I used Eagle, Mountains and Thoughtful Poppies.
To create the silver eagle I die cut the eagle from some white cardstock using coordinating die. I then silver heat embossed the third layer of the body, detail layer of the tail and head and solid layer of the feet. The eye, mouth and the claws were stamped in Noir. The mountain was die cut using coordinating die from some black cardstock. I stamped the third layer on it in Hampton white pigment ink. I stamped it twice with the help of Misti tool to make it brighter. The second layer was stamped in Hampton white pigment ink as well, but this time only once, so that the layers could be seen.
The Thoughtful Poppies was silver heat embossed on some watercolor paper, colored using Brusho powders and die cut with coordinating die. I then prepared the dark red cardbase. I wanted an ombre look of it, so I blended Dark Roast, Spiced Chai and Pink Derby on the upper third of the cardbase. The sentiment is from Eagle set. I heat embossed it in silver on the cardbase. To assemble my card I glued the mountain flat on the cardbase and foam mounted the eagle and the poppy cluster onto the card. I cut out the poppies along the edge of the card. Some sequins from Spotlight Couture mix and Glossy Black sequins mix were my finishing touch!

A beautiful card TaeEun and a great theme. I love the eagle, and the mountain in the background looks great using black card. The poppies have been beautifully coloured and with lovely dimension on both the eagle and the flowers, and stand out perfectly against that ombre coloured card in those deep red tones. x
Very cool card!
Such a striking and beautiful card, TaeEun! I love your color palette on the poppies and your silver eagle is magnificent…WOW!
