I made a few card sets to give as Christmas gifts this year, but I never got around to blogging them till now. Here is the blue set of cards I made.
Size: Horizontal side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I began these six cards by creating six card bases from some water color paper. Then I used my acrylic blocks to smoosh on some blue Distress inks. I let the ink sit for about five minutes before removing the block to get a more intense color.
Once the ink smooshing was dry, I stamped the image on to the cards. I used Versa Mark ink and Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy embossing powder.
Finally, I added the sub sentiment to the cards. I stamp the sentiment on a small strip of water color paper with a grey ink. Then, I adhered the strips with some foam tape.
The recipient love this card set for both its handmade qualities and the really beautiful sentiments.
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Winter Blues
Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s Kind Flowers
Embossing Powder: Simon Says Stamp’s Steel Navy Fine Detail
Ink: Versa Mark
Distress Inks in Stormy Sky, Faded Jeans, Blueprint Sketch, Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, and Mermaid Lagoon
Hope you enjoyed the cards!
