A Good Day

Hello crafty friends! I am so excited to share this card with you today and give you a step by step tutorial so you can create this as well!

This card is so simple to make but has such a WOW factor using gorgeous colors and different techniques. Are you ready to learn how? Great! Let’s get started!

First off, gather all of your supplies. These will also be listed at the bottom of this post and if you need to order anything, just click the photo and it will take you right to my store.

The first step is to cut your Pool Party card base in half vertically so that you end up with a piece that measures 4 1/4″ X 11″. Fold this in half and grab your Die Cutting/Embossing Machine. Emboss the front half of your cardstock using the Fiddle Leaf Folder.

Next, you will ink up the flower image  with Bubble Gum ink. Use a sponge apply a small amount of Raspberry Berry ink to the center of the flower and the stamen.

 

To create leaves, add a few drops of Limeaid Splash Liquid Color to a large block. Use this as an “inkpad” and stamp your leaves into the ink a few times then stamp onto the Whip Cream card stock. When everything is all stamped out use your die cuts and machine to cut them out.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that your pieces are cut out grab some foam squares and let’s pop these up!

 

Stamp the sentiment with the Raspberry Berry ink and cut it out using an oval die. Add more foam squares to the back and assemble all of your pieces.

 

The final touch is some Journey Glaze to the flower and once that is dry a small pearl from the Cottage Pearls. Simple, yet oh so elegant!

 

 

See how easy that was! Now, you try it! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I’d love to hear from you so leave me a comment about this project.
