Hello everyone & thank you for joining me. I know text messaging is all the rage, but we stampers know the value of an actual card! These would work for kids to hand to a friend. Maybe I’m dreaming–LOL!
Here are the simple instructions to get this look. Begin by heat embossing the graphic background stamp (ON SALE in the a2z store) & cut into 2 small panels. Don’t forget to hit the edges with your heat gun to reseal the embossing. Then add circles of colored ink using a foam dauber. IMPORTANT: Blot the ink to remove it from the embossing & prevent smearing. Make mini cards (2 3/4 x 4) & use the same ink to color a strip to fit on the left side of the card. Attach the strip & the embossed panel to the card front. Next stamp the sentiment to match, trim it into a banner & attach it with foam tape toward the bottom.
If the card is for a girl, add a bit of bling with some enamel dots or gems. You could make these with a lot of background stamps, sentiments & colors–whatever you like! Hope I’ve inspired you to join our Color It In challenge. The winner gets a $25 gift certificate to the a2z store.
