The creation of this card was filmed, so I made a video tutorial showing the process start-to-finish. The card is very simple and requires a minimum of supplies. It’s design is based on Altenew stamps and one color of Distress Ink.
I like clean and simple cards. And I like using my imagination to make an interesting card with just a few products.
Here is the card.
And now you can watch my video tutorial. This is my first video in English. Please don’t be too critical and let me know if you like it.
I used Altenew Painted Flowers stamp set for this card. I mounted two flowers on the acrylic block. Next I inked them with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink color and stamped repeatedly along the edge of a piece of white cardstock.
Then I moved to another piece of cardstock and stamped flowers and leaves images in black waterproof ink. I randomly created my composition.
I used a waterbrush and the same color of Distress Ink to create a watercolored look for my image. It actually took me about 4 minutes to complete the coloring. After that I fuzzy-cut the image with scissors to create my own embellishment for the card.
I scored my card base to make a side folding card. Some masking tape helped me to create a straight line along the edge. I used my grid mat to align it. Next I pressed the mini ink pad over the tape and smeared ink in the direction towards the middle of the card front. I replaced the masking tape and repeated the same on the other side.
Before assembling the card I took a piece of twine and wrapped it twice around the central piece that I’ve created earlier. I tied the twine with a bow.
I adhered this front panel to the card with foam tape. And I also used foam tape to put down the flower piece.
