You Are Beautiful Card

Hi Everyone! I’m Sarah and I’m so excited to share my first project with you. I had so much fun creating this project and I can hardly wait to create more fun projects. I love playing with texture when I’m creating anything, but especially when using cardstock. So let’s get started!

First, I cut down my cardstock to be slightly smaller than my A2 card base. I used PopTone in Grape Jelly for this card. Once, it was cut to size, I used The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (TCW963s) and Stencil butter in Orchid to stencil on the cardstock.

After the stencil butter is applied, remove the stencil. Then sprinkle the design with embossing powder. Since I was going for a tone-on-tone look, I used Maker Forte Purple Saphire embossing powder. Then applied heat to both help dry the stencil butter and “activate” the embossing powder.

Once the stencil butter and embossing powder were dry, I used acrylic ink in silver and violet to “splatter” some drops around the card. I did use a bit of water to water it down so I could get some smaller splatters.

While that was drying, I used a Hero Arts stamp to stamp a flower image and sentiment onto CTI Glama Natural Translucent Vellum with black Stazon ink. Once I had my stamped image, I fussy cut the image out. After it was cut out, I used alcohol-based markers to color in my stamped image.

Next, I ink blended around the edges of my card base, just so there wasn’t a white border around my cardstock.

Now it’s time to put it all together. To adhere the main cardstock piece to the card base I used Plus BLUE high capacity double sided adhesive. For the sentiment and image, I used foam tape so that they didn’t just lay flush against the embossing and stenciling.

I hope you enjoyed this project as much as I did and I can’t wait to share more with you.
