Today I thought I would share a simple and fun background for a card or a layout. It's the "Oh no, I was supposed to make a card and now I have to crank out a card in 5 minutes" card. Come on...you know we've all been there. Mad scrambling at the last minute because you forgot you were the one that was supposed to bring the handmade card!
This card is simple, and clean looking but still has a little fun to it. Plus you can do this technique with any stencil! It gives your card a fun dimensional look without all the work!
For this card I will be using Dreamweaver Damask Stencil, but you could use any stencil for this technique!
First lay down your stencil and use an ink dauber to apply Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. Remove stencil and let dry. Lay stencil back over image, and then move slightly to the right and down. Using a dauber apply White pigment Ink. Remove stencil and let dry. Trim to a 4 1/8" x 5 1/2" and round corners.
Glue to white cardstock card with rounded corners. Die cut 2 1/2" circle from white cardstock. Stamp with Stampendous Happy Messages "Thank You" sentiment using Memento Black ink. Stamp small heart from Stampendous Love Always Clear Stamp set using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink as shown. Glue onto 3" vellum circle. Foam tape centered onto card.
Viola! Your finished. These fast and easy cards would make a great gift set as well!
