Ombre Birthday Card

Happy Tuesday everyone! This is Alexia here and I’m going to share a card with you today. Tomorrow is one my son classmates’ birthday (she is turning 5) and I made this card for her. It’s not too carton-ish because I’m not used to making cards for kids. I hope she will like it.  Before I start I would like to share with you that CutCardStock is having sale on the Metallic card stocks this week (I used it on my today’s project too), check it out!
Now, here is the card that I’m talking about: 

To make this card, I first stenciled the card background on CutCardStock’s Classic Crest solar white card stock in an ombre pattern, at the same time I masked out the area where I want to keep the sentiment. I also stenciled the two yellow bars to bring the focus to the center of the card. Next will be stamping the present images and coloring them with alcohol ink markers.

To create a matching envelope, I stamped the same present images on a CutCardStock’s A2 white envelope. I actually also heat embossed the back of the card with my name and email address and I can tell you that this Metallic card stock is perfect for heat embossing. The card stock stays flat during and after embossing, totally worth investing for all who do paper crafting.

I hope you like my project, it’s fun to play with stencil and inks! I would love to see what you create too. Thank you for checking out my post today, I appreciate your time! Happy Creating! – Alexia
