recently saw a very attractive but very simple card
someone had made using Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the image for her card.
She’d just added a sentiment and the card looked great.
to give it a try yesterday, using the Stylised Birthday Stamp for the
Apart from the DSP Stacks for the colour families, I don’t have much current DSP at the moment but I do have A Little Foxy DSP Stack.
I start making a card, I find it very difficult to stop at simple, although I do stop before it becomes too busy!
Yesterday was no exception!
I finished my session after I’d made three
cards altogether – two Fox cards and one Brights DSP Stack flowery card!
the Fox cards, I started with a base of Whisper White Cardstock and a
layer of Calypso Coral.
layers were adhered to the card bases using Tombow.
Then I took two
pieces of Calypso Coral Cardstock and wiped them both with my Embossing Buddy.
I inked up the Stylised Birthday Stamp with
Versamark and stamped on each piece of cardstock.
I heat embossed one
with Silver Embossing Powder and the other with White Embossing Powder.
I’m glad I did this because I think it really added quite a lot to this card.
I glued one
sentiment to the front of each card.
For simple cards I should have
stopped there! LOL!
On my desk, I have an upended box lid that I’ve been popping
some stamped images in, and saw there were two foxes in there!
So I used
Dimensionals and adhered one to each card and the simple card wasn’t
simple any more!
In fact, I’m really pleased with how these two cards turned out!
On the second card, the face was stamped using the Foxy Friends Stamp Set using Archival Basic Black Ink.
I prefer the punched shapes and I also prefer the fox with his head tilted – he looks really cute!
I also think the white embossing looks better than the silver because it is far more striking because there is so much white already on this card.
I’ll save the third card for tomorrow as hubby called it fussy when I showed him! LOL!
I’m not sure it is but I’ll look forward to your feedback once I’ve shared it with you!
Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
