Pink & Main | Berry Sweet Happy Mail

I have been sending a lot of "miss you" cards, but this one is by far the sweetest! I used new Pink & Main goodies to make this cute card! 

Recently I have rediscovered my love for embossing folders and Pink & Main has a bunch of new designs! I used a piece of heavy white cardstock and ran it through my die cutting machine with the Happy Mail Embossing Folder. I prefer to use heavy cardstock ( or even watercolor paper ) with embossing folders because it gives SO much dimension! I wanted my background to really pop, so I took a bright pink ink pad and lightly rubbed it across my raised design. Some of the ink got in between the envelopes, but that's okay! I love the look! 

I stamped my images from the Berry Sweet Stamp Set with a black pigment ink and heat set them with clear powder. I planned to color my images with Karin watercolor pens and the heat embossed images create raised edges so that it's easier for me to color. Once they were colored I cut them out with the coordinating Berry Sweet Dies

The sentiments in the Berry Sweet Stamp Set are perfectly spaced so you can create a berry punny sentiment. How fun, right! I stamped out "Miss you so .... much" with black ink and the "berry" with the same pink ink I used on the background. I used a die from the Large Sentiment Strip Die Set to cut out the longer sentiment and fussy cut the word "berry" so that I could pop it up on top of the sentiment strip. 

I added all of my images and sentiments onto my embossed background with foam tape and I'm ready to pop this card in the mail! Thanks for joining me!
