My cards below measure 5″ X 7″ and fit inside an A7 envelope. I’m using 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock for the card fronts and card bases. Everything is stamped using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. I use Simon Says Stamp Dot Runner Tape Adhesive to attach the elements together. Here’s the details.
Make it Epic Card
My first card is a quick and easy one featuring the new Cue the Confetti stamps and dies. I stamped the balloons in black on white, added confetti and two sentiments from the same set to create the background. For the large balloon, I gave it a few soft colored stripes using Copics in Y00, YG00, RV00, B00 and V12. I add more dots using the same color to the background for a unified look. I attached the large balloon using foam dots to make it stand out from the background. This card took less than 30 minutes to make and it really is a fun one!
All About You Card
Here’s another card I made using the same balloon set and the
In bold oranges and reds, I used the Lined Arches Stencil to make this fun bold background to complement the large balloon and sentiments in the foreground. Confetti is from the Cue the Confetti stamp set. I splashed on some white paint using Dr. PH Martens white ink for a fun effect.
Hibiscus Caring Card
For this card, I used the embossing folder to do all the work on my card front. Since my card is 5″ X 7″, I added a watercolor background I painted in duller tones to enhance the beauty of the hibiscus design. I colored the flowers using Distress Oxide inks to make them stand out. For the leaves I used Copic BG90 to color in a soft blue-green-gray tone.
