cardmaking

Thinking of you

Hello friends!

I have a thinking of you card up on the papermilldirect blog today.

I love using my copic markers but unless its a copic friendly card it will run and bleed and completely ruin your colouring. I thought I would try colouring on the Sirio Colour Card and I couldn’t believe that it didn’t run the colour from the markers! I’m so impressed!

To make this card you will need:

You will also need:

  • Floral Stamps (Uniquely Creative)
  • Sentiment (Uniquely Creative)
  • Copic Markers
  • Gems
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Versamark Ink

To start with I made my card base using Perla Sirio Colour Card 290gsm which I trimmed at 4 1/4″ and scored at 5 7/8″. I then trimmed down a piece of Nude Sirio Colour Card 290gsm a little bit smaller than the card front.

Next I stamped some floral branches onto the Nude Sirio Colour Card 290gsm to make a background. Once this was completed I coloured in the branches with my copic markers. I honestly thought the colour would bleed a little bit and I was so happy when it didn’t. I will definitely be doing this technique again.

Once all the branches were coloured in I adhered this onto my card base using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of Navy Plain Card 240gsm and trimmed this down. I adhered to my card using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

To finish the card off I adhered some gems onto the card using some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml.

I hope you give this a try and don’t be scared to experiment with different cards and your markers.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Vic
