Today's card comes from my recent Washi Tape/Sheets class. Each attendee received one sheet of each of the washi sheets and we used the other sheet (each package comes with two sheets of each color/pattern) to make the card. For this card, we took a piece of Whisper White card stock and colored it using sponges in patches of Strawberry Slush, Wisteria Wonder and Daffodil Delight. The more intense you make the color, the more it will show through your washi sheet. We then took a piece of the gray grid washi sheet and placed it directly over the colored white piece. Super cool, huh? We also took a piece of washi tape and placed it on a scrap of Whisper White, stamped the sentiment using Black Stazon and cut it out using the Bitty Banners framelit. Finally we made the flower cutting the card stock out with the Flower Fair framelits. We wet the pieces, scrunched them up, placed them on a candy dot base and let them dry.
Here is the inside of the card that we did in class.
Here is a variation on the front of the card. For this, you will need the Butterflies Thinlets - #137360.
Wow, this set has been around for a while and so has this card! I am not sure when I made this one but I stumbled on it and realized I had not shared it with you. Today is your lucky day! It is kind of a spotlight card although you usually see those where the background is done in black or gray and the highlighted portion is in color. This time I decided to keep the whole thing in color. This is a super quick and easy card since you don't have to be perfect with any of the stamping.
Here is the next card in my Special Folds class and my next video for you. This card is actually pretty easy to make - you just have to remember to place the fold of the card at the bottom, not the top!
Here is what the card looks like when you pull up on the linen thread. Super cool, huh? Here is the video on how to make this card:
Here is a card we made using the Indescribable Gift stamp set that will no longer be available come June 3 so get it before then if you want it. I used it in conjunction with the Butterfly Basics set which is finally available again for ordering with the coordinating framelits. And the best part - they are available in the new catalog! This is just the perfect set for a sympathy card - so sweet!
