Card Tutorial - Clean & Simple Baby Card0
Hello, it's Lisa here with another clean and simple card making tutorial. This card is similar to the last one as it features a negative die cut as the main focus of the card but this one is perfect for a newborn.
I have gone with a Nautical theme with this card which is one of my favourite trends of this year and fortunately Papermill Direct have the perfect card colours for Nautical makes.
1. Make a card base from Navy plain card. Mine is 5 x 5 inches. Print a Pink Petticoat sentiment (or make one in Word) and digital stamp onto White Linen card. Trim the card to 4.5 x 4.5 inches and die cut a 3 inch circle in the centre of the card front. Die cut a 4 inch circle around the sail boat digital stamp.
2. Colour the sail boat. I have used Derwent Coloursoft pencils and American Crafts glitter pens.
3. Die cut or trace and scissor cut some waves from Sky Blue card. Add some detail to the waves with a silver (or white) pen. Adhere one wave directly to the sailboat as shown and the other to the underside of the card front. Adhere the sailboat panel to the card base.
4. Now to make a port hole using a 3 inch and 3.5 inch circle die/punch. Cut one from Ruby Red card and one from Dark Grey card. Punch holes around the perimeter of the Ruby Red circle. Glue the two circles together.
5. Adhere to the card front using 3D foam pads. Add a wood veneer anchor to the side of the port hole. Adhere the card front to the card base and that's the card done!
For an extra special touch you could easily turn this card into a shaker card by adding acetate under the porthole and using foam tape to seal in some red, white and blue sequins, glitter and bling.
