The New Manager

I still can't get enough of the Catherine Pooler Designs Color Burst Powders and all the different looks you can achieve with them. They can be bold and bright, or soft and subtle, like the card I have today!

A couple of months back, a new interim manager was inducted into my work team, and she is just the sweetest person and a really great boss. I made the card for her for the team to sign-we really wanted her to stay and thankfully, she has!

I started my card by applying some Color Burst Powders in Mardi Gras and Limencello onto Canson Watercolor Paper. After the background dried, I did some dry embossing with the Garden Gate Die. Then, with some water and a large brush, picked up some of the Color Burst Powders and let them sink into the areas defined by the Garden Gate Die for a bit of extra, subtle flair. One of the cool things with the Color Burst Powders is that you can get pockets of unexpected color, such as the orangish-red spot from the Limencello Color Burst Powder.

I finished the card by trimming the background panel and adding it to a card base from made from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock, a die cut sentiment made with the Welcome Word Die and a stamped sentiment from the Warm Welcome Stamp Set. This Duo is perfect for all kinds of warm welcomes. Sigh, I love simple cards that pack a punch!
