Have a Beautiful Day

At our last Team Play Day one of our Team Members, the gorgeous Karen Kaden, inspired us with her beautiful card design.  The subtle use of ink applied to the surface of the embossed cardstock makes this card just so adorable.  This is my version of her card design.

CTMH products used to create this card:

5 1/2" X 4 1/4" White Cards & Envelopes, Value Pack
Happy Birds stamp set
White Daisy Cardstock
Glacier Cardstock
Black Archival Exclusive Inks Pad
Glacier Exclusive Inks™ Pad
Canary Exclusive Inks™ Pad
ShinHan Touch Twin Markers
Sequins Gold Assortment
Dot Embossing Folder
Sponge Daubers
3L® E-Z Dots® Adhesive
Thin 3D Foam Tape
3D Foam Tape

How to create this card:
  1. Emboss Daisy White Cardstock using the Dots Embossing Folder.
  2. Add colour effect to the embossed cardstock by applying Glacier and Canary Ink (or colours of your choice) lightly with sponge daubers.  Rub lightly and reapply to achieve the desired amount of colour.
  3. Stamp images and sentiment with the Black Archival Exclusive Ink.  Wait for stamped images to dry completely before colouring them in with the ShinHan Touch Twin Markers,
  4. Mount the sentiment on Glacier Cardstock and adhere with Thin 3D Foam Tape to the Embossed Cardstock.
  5. Colour and cut out all stamped images and adhere to card.
  6. Embellish with Gold Sequins.

I will be teaching this card at my Creative Card Workshop this weekend and I can't wait to see what everyone's finished cards look like.  

Thanks so much for dropping by, please visit again soon.

Warmest crafting wishes,
