Hello, with all the beautiful cardstock at Papermilldirect I thought I would share how to use some bright colours on your cards.

Products I used:


To start with I made my card base using White Card Plain 250gsm which I scored and folded in half to make my card base. I then cut down a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm, which is my favourite cardstock to craft with as its so versatile. I then used some pigment inks and my sponge to make a blended background. You can use whatever colours you like for your card, I used some pinks and yellows for my background. I then added this to the front of my card base using Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm.

I then used another piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm to stamp my images and colour them in. I used copic markers for this as this card is absolutely perfect for using your alcohol markers on. Once all my images were coloured and cut I really wanted to add some more bright colours to my card. I used a die to cut the grass and I used this lovely card Apple Green Card Plain 240gsm which is perfect for adding some grass or hills to your creation. I then die cut the words happy using Raspberry Pink Plain Card 240gsm which is another favourite of mine.

I then added all my elements to the card front. For the die cut Happy letters I used Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml to stick the letters down which is great as it sticks really well. I added some of this to grass die and placed the grass at the bottom of my card. I then stuck down the animals with some Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs). To finish the card off I stamped the word birthday and heat embossed this onto some Black Plain Card 250gsm (another favourite). I then added some Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs) to the back of this and added this just under the die cut words happy.

I think adding some bright colours of cardstock to your card really adds fun and it will certainly make someone smile.
