How to make a card


Pink and Main Giveaway Hop

Hello my friends! I am back as part of a video hop showcasing the fabulous Pink & Main. On the hop you will find some awesome inspiration and have yourself a chance to win a $25.00 Pink and Main gift card. Check out this quick card tutorial over on my Youtube Channel. Written instructions listed below.

To begin

I started with some Classic Linen White Pearl Cardstock from cutcardstock.com

I used a silicone baking mat I picked up from Hobby Lobby to emboss the mandala stencil from Pink & Main onto the white pearl cardstock.

To achieve the embossing with your stencils

  • Start with your base plate from your die cutting machine and 1 cutting pad.
  • Then, place your silicone mat on the cutting pad.
  • Next, place your cardstock on top of the silicone mat.
  • And finally, place your stencil on the cardstock and place your second cutting pad on top and then roll through your die cutting machine.

And wa-lah, beautifully embossed stencil on this classic linen white pearl cardstock.

Next, I used some prima marketing metallic watercolors to splatter some black and gold paint to give it some additional interest and set aside to dry.

The little things

For the sentiments, I used the Celebrate Stamp set and coordinating die.

For the celebrate die; I cut that three times out of black cardstock and layered that together with some liquid glue and then painted the black metallic watercolor paint over top to give this really pretty charcoal look.

While the celebrate die cut dried. I stamped the phrase “the little things” and “everyday” from the coordinating celebrate stamp set with some Stazon Pigment Piano Black ink. The little things sentiment I made a simple slant banner strip to go under the word celebrate and everyday was stamped on the inside of my card base.

To put it all together I layered the classic linen white pearl cardstock onto a piece of black cardstock to give a small black border and then adhered that to a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 top folding card base. I lined the word celebrate up on to the front of the card panel and adhered that with some liquid glue. I then place the little things banner coming from the right just under the celebrate.

That wraps it up for me today guys. Thank you so much for joining me. I hope you have a fantastic day and I will catch you next time.

To get started the products I am using today are

  • Simon Says Stamp Peony Bouquet Stencil
  • Gina K Designs In the Navy
  • Stazon Pigment Ink in Snowflake, Lemon Drop, Pink Cosmos and Shamrock Green
  • My Card Base is Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 lb Cover
  • I am using simple makup sponges, but you could use make up brushes as well.
  • Gina K Designs Embossing and Watermark ink
  • Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing Powder
  • Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set

Completing My Card Panel

To start I applied a repositionable adhesive to the back of my stencil and let that dry for a few seconds and then I applied the stencil to my cardstock. Once adhered I started sponging on the white snowflake pigment ink to all of the stencil that was showing on my card panel. Once the layer of white was added, I then added Stazon Lemon Drop ink to the stamens. I then moved on to adding the Stazon Pink Cosmos ink to all of the flowers. And Finally I added the Stazon Shamrock Green ink to the leaves.

For my greeting I embossed one of the Thanks from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set using Brutus Monroe Gilded Embossing Powder and Gina K Designs Embossing and Watermark ink. Next,

  • I cut an 8.5 x 11 110 lb Neenah Classic Crest Card down on the 11 inch side to 5.5 inches and then scored with my scor-buddy at 4.25 inches.
  • I then adhered a piece of fun foam with 1/2 inch scor-tape to the back of my card panel to give it some dimension.
  • Before adding my card panel to my card base. I took the stencil and added one of the Peony’s to the inside of the card base. I then added my sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Big Thanks Words stamp set. Using Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink.

Finishing Up

To finish I adhered my card panel to my card base and then completed a quick matching envelope using a Gina K Designs In the Navy envelope and the Peony Bouquet Stencil, again adding a layer of white snowflake pigment ink from Stazon and then adding the Lemon Drop ink followed by the Pink Cosmos and finally the shamrock green.

This completes my project for today I hope you enjoyed the tutorial and you click the link #TeamTinySpringFlowers and follow along on Youtube. Please Check out all the other talented crafters who are hopping along.
