I was CASing a card a saw on the Lawn Fawn Flickr group today. In the end, the card also turned out to be a birthday card for a friend.
Size: Vertical side fold A2 card
Extra Details: I started by creating my striped background. I used Seedless Preserves Distress Ink as water color. I wanted an ombre effect which I got through adding more water to my ink and adding extra layers on ink to the darker stripes. I didn’t measure anything, I just went with the flow. I added some ink splatters with the left over ink on my acrylic block.
As the background was drying, I made my focal image. I started with a stitched circle. I stamped all of the images and used more Distress Inks to add color. I used my friend’s favorite colors, which gave the image an unexpected twist. I even created a background with my distress inks.
Once everything was dry, I started to assemble the card. I added a small strip of paper that I colored with my Seedless Preserves Distress Ink to the left edge. I also added a stitched detail to that piece. Next, I added the same stitched detail to my striped panel and adhered that to the card base. I also die cut a larger stitched circle from some dotted velum. I adhered that to the back of my focal images. I popped the velum and focal images up on fun foam before adhering them to the card.
