Good Morning Vic here today. I love how easy it is to ink blend on cards using White Card Super Smooth 250gsm. If you haven't tried using this card its one of my favorites and I use it on pretty much all my cards.


What you will need the following craft supplies:

You will also need:

  • Pink, Purple and Red Pigment Inks and Sponge
  • Uniquely Creative Read Past Your Bedtime Stamps
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Versamark Ink
  • Copic Markers

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and I trimmed this to 4 1/4" and scored at 5 7/8".

I then used another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm which is for the card front. I started by gently applying the inks with a sponge applicator and adding more colour as I went along. Once the colours start building up I gently blended them together. Once this was completed I used some Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm and adhered this to the card base.

I then stamped my images onto some more White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and coloured them in. Once this was done I cut them out and adhered them onto the card base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish off the card I used a piece of Black Plain Card 240gsm and stamped the greeting with versamark ink. I then sprinkled on some white embossing powder and heat set this with my gun. I then trimmed this out and adhered this onto the card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I think this will be great to send to someone who loves reading. Its such a fun card and adding ink to your cards can really brighten them up.
