Hello again! For my second guest design project I decided to make a card! I am so so so bad at making cards! I’m not sure why but I just cant get the composition down yet! Hopefully with practice I’ll get more use to cards 🙂 I tend to stay away from making them!
Anyways, I created this rather unique cards with some white card stock and clearsnap inks! I used the “Brocade” petal point ink set which includes 8 gorgeous coordinating colors. They have a really pretty metallic sheen to them! I also took some photo’s of the process which may make it a little easier to understand! But first here is the finished card!
Something different! I really love it! On with the tutorial.
My paper was cut to 4 by 5 1/4 inches so it would mat on a basic sized card base.
Cut along the lines to give yourself individual wonky shaped pieces of paper that will piece together to create a lovely sunburst pattern! And on we go…
Using each petal point ink, ink each strip with a different color. Make sure to give an even coating to each strip and leave to dry! You can also stamp a pattern in the background with versamark and embossing powder, then ink and allow to dry. Wipe away extra ink on top of embossed image!
After each piece has dried. Cut another piece of 4 by 5 1/4 inch piece of card stock and cover it with adhesive. Lay down your strips and recreate the sunburst pattern. Cut off excess card stock (if any) and mount on your card. You can then embellish and include in a package 🙂 I used barely any supplies! Just pick up a petal point ink which includes 8 colors and make a variety of beautiful cards!
