cardmaking

Sweet thinking of you card

Good morning! I hope your all having a relaxing Sunday.

Today I am up on the Papermilldirect blog showing you how to create this card.

Sometimes making a ‘Thinking of you’ card is a bit tricky to make. I often find depending on the situation that soft colours work better.

The products I used for this card are:

Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm

Ivory Card Hammered 255gsm

Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm

White Card Super Smooth 300gsm

Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml

Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs)

Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm

• You will also need:

• Critter stamps

• Oval die

• Die cutting machine

• Heat gun

• Clear embossing powder

• White embossing powder

• Watercolour paints

• Versamark ink pad (black and clear)

• Sequins or gems

To make the card base I cut a piece of Baby Pink Plain Card 240gsm in half (vertically) and scored the middle and folded this in half. I then cut down a piece of Ivory Card Hammered 255gsm to make my card front. I adhered this to my card base using Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mm. I then die cut a scallop using a piece of Fleck Kraft Card 250gsm. I then heat embossed my sentiment onto the die using white embossing powder and placed this in the center of my card.

I then stamped my images and heat embossed them onto a piece of White Card Super Smooth 300gsm. After this step I water coloured the images. You will need to heat emboss your images to make sure that there is no ink that has run while you add your water colour. I also use my heat gun to dry the images. Once dry I cut the images out and placed then onto my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Squares (940 pcs).

The last step is to add your sequins or gems. I always use Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml to stick down any embellishments.

I hope you have fun making this card.

Thanks for stopping by today
