Endless Potential Card0
Papermilldirect have some beautiful dark colours of card and I love adding them to my cards.
The products I used are:
- Antracite Sirio Colour Card 290gsm
- Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 250gsm
- Black Plain Card 250gsm
- Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm
- Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml
You will also need:
- Large flower stamp
- Stitched die
- Versafine black ink
- Clear embossing powder
- White embossing powder
- Heat Gun
- Watercolour paints
- Nuvo drops
To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Antracite Sirio Colour Card 290gsm to 4 1/4 and scored this in half. I then trimmed down a piece of Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm and run this through my die cutting machine using the stitched die. I then trimmed this to fit on the card.
For the flower I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and stamped this with Versafine black ink and then set some clear embossing powder over the top. I then heated this with my heat tool. This is now ready for you to watercolour. Once this is done I trimmed the flower and adhered this onto my card base using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
To finish the card off I added some sequins and nuvo drops.
I love how the colours really stand out next to the grey card. I hope you have fun making this card.
