I love all the soft colours of card at Papermilldirect and today I will show you how I created this card.
You will need:
- Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm
- Black Plain Card 250gsm
- White Card Hemp 255gsm
- White Card Super Smooth 300gsm
- Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm
- You will also need:
- Animal stamps
- black pigment ink
- Die cutting machine
- Cloud and grass die
- Circle border edge die
- Zig markers or watercolour paints
- white embossing powder
- Heat gun
- Clear embossing powder
To make the card base I cut down a piece of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm scored and folded in half. For my card front I cut down a piece of White Card Hemp 255gsm and adhered this onto my base using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml. I then die cut a circle border edge die using a piece of Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm and adhered this onto my front panel using some more Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.
For the images I stamped them onto some White Card Super Smooth 300gsm and as its a pigment ink I then heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. As this is not a card meant for water colouring if you clear emboss the stamped image it should stop the ink from running onto the paper. I lightly water coloured the images in and cut them out. I then die cut a piece of grass using some more Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm and adhered this and the animal images onto my card.
To finish off the card I added a few sequins using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.
I hope you have fun making your cards and trying some light water colouring too!
