The Reason I Smiled Today Card

Good Morning,

I have this pretty card that will let a special person in your life know how grateful you are for them.

The products I used are:

You will also need:

  • Flower Stamp (uniquely creative)
  • Greeting (uniquely creative)
  • Zig water colour brush pens
  • Black Ink (my favorite things)
  • White embossing powder (WOW)
  • Versamark ink
  • Nuvo Drops
  • Sequins


To make the card base I trimmed and scored a piece of Slate Grey Smooth Card 240gsm to 4 1/8 inches and scored at 5 7/8 inches. I then trimmed down a smaller panel of White Card Linen 255gsm and adhered this onto the card base with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

For the flowers I stamped them onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and very gently water coloured them in. Once dry I trimmed them out and adhered onto the card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then used a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder. I trimmed this down and adhered to top of my card with some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I added some Nuvo Drops and sequins which I adhered using Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

The colouring took me a while but its worth it. I really love how this turned out. I hope this tutorial will inspire you to create something today.
