A Sweet Thinking of You Card0
Sometimes making a 'Thinking of you' card is a bit tricky to make. I often find depending on the situation that soft colours work better.
The products I used for this card are:
- Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm
- Ivory Card Hammered 255gsm
- Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 300gsm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml
- Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs)
- Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm
- You will also need:
- Critter stamps
- Oval die
- Die cutting machine
- Heat gun
- Clear embossing powder
- White embossing powder
- Watercolour paints
- Versamark ink pad (black and clear)
- Sequins or gems
To make the card base I cut a piece of Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm in half (vertically) and scored the middle and folded this in half. I then cut down a piece of Ivory Card Hammered 255gsm to make my card front. I adhered this to my card base using Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm. I then die cut a scallop using a piece of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm. I then heat embossed my sentiment onto the die using white embossing powder and placed this in the center of my card.
I then stamped my images and heat embossed them onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. After this step I water coloured the images. You will need to heat emboss your images to make sure that there is no ink that has run while you add your water colour. I also use my heat gun to dry the images. Once dry I cut the images out and placed then onto my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs).
The last step is to add your sequins or gems. I always use Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml to stick down any embellishments.
Your card is now complete. I hope you have fun making your cards.
