Very fresh clean looking card and a quick make
The card is 5x7 and another piece of card measuring 5x7 is cut at an angle going wider towards the bottom of the card the card underneath has been stencilled using the fancy fretwork stencil from Tonic Studios you will need an blending sponge and the yellow and orange toned hybrid inks - Carrot Stick & Rubber Duck going light to dark.then the white layers are added back to the card with 3d foam pads and a hello stamp was added with Nuvo black hybrid ink and to finish Nuvo drops were added in the same tones to the inks and a large flower from the beautiful blooms was added.
The card blank decorative Rivoli is cut by cutting 2x base dies out in cream 280 gsm card and placing a score line in the back panel and then placing adhesive to the hinge to glue the front panel to the back to form your shaped card.you will then cut the same shape in dark Pewter grey craft perfect and then die cut the detail.
The background for this card was created using a white glossy card stock and using the two shades of pink- Panama rose & Pink Sherbert, I applied the ink straight to the card I had to do this quickly as they are fast drying inks as they are hybrid but I randomly took the felt ink pad to the card and pushed down and then twisted it so it was more of a circular shape than square then added a couple of drops of glycerine to my glass media mat and picked up with a sponge blender and quickly blended the colours together it gives you a lovely background to your card and then you can colour ribbon to match ect that's the beauty of hybrid inks you can colour ribbon and stamp directly onto ribbon .
The flowers were die cut and shaped with the Tonic Studios flower forming kit and then each petal was distressed with the same inks using a sponge blender.
The flowers were placed onto the card with hot glue and then Crystal drops applied and the enjoy sentiment was added with a drop shadow. A card you could give for any occasion by just changing the sentiment, I do love a card with handmade flowers they really are special to receive.
This was such a simple card to put together but I really like the fresh zingy colours of this card made me smile .
I drew with a pencil and ruler roughly where I wanted my strip of colour and started with the lighter colours of ink pads Rubber Duck and Lime Burst to fill the solid colour of the stamps then went back over with the darker ink pads Carrot Stick - Dried Oregano to outline the stamps, the strip in the centre does cover a little but not much and then the centre panel has special wishes stamped with Nuvo Black hybrid ink pad and then 3 Nuvo drops applied top and bottom and then randomly add the beautiful Nuvo lightgold pure sheen sequins to the card.
This card was created using the large plain tag dies and was die cut with the craft perfect smooth card stock the card is 5x7 with mat and layers in bright white craft perfect and Pistachio green craft perfect the stamp was inked up using a Rich Rosewood in the hybrid sets and the darkest green Dried Oregano the rose buds were masked off so the 3x rose buds were overlaying each other and coloured using the brand new sets of Nuvo Alcohol pens in the greens and coral tones. The tipple coral bow was added to the top of the tag so everything is colour co- ordinated and then to finish white Nuvo gloss drops were added. A really simple thank you card but change the sentiment it could be for any occasion.
