Here’s another card I made using the new Be Kind stamp set (There’s a coordinating die set. Buy the stamp and die bundle here) from Simon Says Stamp. This set is part of the Hey Bestie release available now. This is such a lovely set and I thought it would be fun to color in the image with jewel tone colored pencils. I like to use Primsacolor Premier Colored Pencils.
This 5″ X 7″ card is designed to open with the top flap opening upward and the bottom flap opening downward to reveal the message or note inside. To make the card, I stamped the leaves on the black bottom half in Encore gold metallic ink. I also splattered gold watercolor paint over it using Zig Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor paint (my favorite watercolor set I own). White ink was also splattered on top of the gold after the gold had dried completely.
I added gold splatters of watercolor paint to my Neenah 80lb ivory colored cardstock on the top flap. the floral spray image was embossed in gold on black cardstock, die cut and colored in using my Primsacolor Premier Colored Pencils in aquas, greens, purples, grays and blues. Lovely Friend phrase was stamped and fussy cut out and added with dimensional foam by tucking above the floral spray.
To finish the card, I added a a gold edge using metallic cardstock. I simply cut, scored the piece and attached to the top flap. This card has a very elegant look with the striking gold on black and the deep jewel tone colors. I think one of my friends will enjoy receiving this in the mail!
