Hi there! I hope you are all having a great day :) With mother’s day right around the corner I thought I would whip up a few cards using my new Old Paper set, my old Fancy Flowers set , my Envelope Bonanza templates and today’s freebie:
Stamps: Old Paper, Fancy Flowers, Envelope Template: Envelope Bonanza all from Lindsay's stamp stuff
Tip of the day: don’t be Lazy, make matching envelopes :) If you have a Cricut and SCAL software you can cut my Envelope Bonanza Templates in Seconds! If you don’t you can make the printable envelopes in a minute or two, no excuses ;)
These cards qualify for the following challenges: Clearly I Stamp, Craft Your PAssion, Creative Card Crew, Dare you to Digistamp, One Stitch at a time, Paper Cutz, Paper Popsicles and the middle card is for 2 Sketches 4 You.
The paper and stamps were all printed on one sheet of cardstock, I layered the stamps over the paper and filled the center with the paint bucket tool using white at 100% then added the flower stamp over that. I filled in the “torn” pieces with the paintbucket using white at 40% so it would be a bit lighter than the background then I added a drop shadow (very blurry) to give a little more depth, You get a nice 3-D effect that way! Here is how my sheet of cardstock looked:
By arranging this in Paint Shop Pro before printing I get all of the paper and elements for 3 cards on one sheet of cardstock! And I saved it so it is ready next time I need a quick card. I let the flower are white so I could color it with Copics:)
Now you could simply print the torn stamp on pattern paper and color the torn paper bits with a white colored pencil and cut out the center to layer over a stamped image too, it is up to you and how you prefer to craft:) There is no right or wrong way! Here is a closer look at the cards:
Now for the freebie, I made a little set of tickets you can use for cards, I love them because they are easy to color and trim and FREEEEEEE! Click the pic to download!
