Rejoice Card using a Coffee Filter

It is really windy with a southern wind bringing in hot air today.  The temps are going to get in the upper 80s and then tomorrow we won't reach 60.  Crazy, crazy!!!

This card uses one of the new A Way With Word releases, Rejoice (QF / ECD) along with a not new die, the leafy wreath in the Rosebud Wreath & Elements Set (QF / ECD).

My background starts with a used coffee filter that I saved.  I crumpled the coffee filter well, rubbed Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy over it (turn the ink pad over and lightly brush it over the wrinkles), spritzed just a little water over the filter so the ink would blend out just a bit, dried it, rubbed over the filter with my hand to flatten it more, lightly brayered Fresco Finish Paint across the middle to lighten it a bit, dried it, adhered it over white cardstock wrapping the edges to the back and taping them down, sprayed it with Mica Spray Buttercup, dried it and finally inked the edges with Brushed Corduroy.   

Rejoice was die cut from red cardstock with Clear Double Sided Adhesive on the top.  I removed the liner and added Silk Microfine Glitter True Red brushing off the extra and then burnishing down/polishing the glitter by rubbing well with my fingertip. 

The wreath was cut from a light grayish green cardstock.  Veining was added using Susan's Garden Tools and the Leaf Pad.  Shading done with Distress Ink Evergreen Bough. Shaped it by pinching all the leaves and glued it to the card. 

This was fun to do and I'm saving more coffee filters!!!  I hope you enjoy it!!

Hugs, Wanda
